   Harm married Rosella Wiertzema on April 26, 1951 in Rushmore.  They were true soulmates always taking care of each other and walking side by side, hand in hand. They lived their entire married lives in the Rushmore and Worthington areas. He was a devoted husband; very rarely did you see Harm and Rosella apart.
   He worked at the Worthington Hatchery; and Worthington Ready Mix before working for the Minnesota Department of Transportation for over twenty six years. He loved competing in the MN DOT Rodeo with his fellow coworkers. After his retirement, Harm and Rosella enjoyed many bus trips. They made many new friends on these trips and always kept in contact after they returned. They enjoyed going fishing, joy rides around the lake, polka music and going to the casino. Harms favorite thing to do was to wash & polish his car. He was a member of the Westminster Presbyterian Church, in Worthington.
