Harold Pete Jorgensen
Harold Pete Jorgensen was born on November 25, 1938 to Orvald and Eileen Jorgensen in Viborg, South Dakota. He died at his rural Lennox home on Monday, January 7th, 2019 at the age of 80 surrounded by his family.
Harold spent most of his working career in the trucking industry, retiring in 1996.
He enjoyed watching his grandsons race motorcycles at Saddleback Race Park, Renner, SD where he was known as “gramps” to many. Harold loved playing cards, especially pinochle, and in more recent years, Texas hold'em at the Only One Bar. Spending time with family or attending the grandchildren's sporting events were a priority for him.
