Ohlfs, Harold "Harry" Virgil (12 DEC 1952 - 8 FEB 2018)
Harold "Harry" Virgil Ohlfs, 65, passed peacefully at home on Feb. 8, 2018 in Bradenton, Fla., surrounded by the love of his family and friends.
Harry was born on Dec. 12, 1952 to Virgil and May Bell (Bunce) Ohlfs. He graduated from Ladysmith High School as a true Lumberjack and continued to be a fan his whole life.
Harry is survived by his former wife, Marianne Peterson Ohlfs; his children, Nathan (Stacy) Ohlfs, Heather Ohlfs and Tiffany (Bo) Jenkins; his grandchildren, Chloe Ohlfs, Gina and Jamie Parsley and Ella May and Dawson Schmitt; his fiancé ReBecca Haas; his sister Linda Longmore; his niece and nephew, Jessica (TJ) Curtis and Ryan Longmore; his great-nephew and niece, Xavier Curtis and Kelsey Longmore and many relatives and friends.
After high school he moved to Burlington with Marianne, and that is where their three children were raised. He worked for the railroad all his life and never missed a day of work. Harold always loved sports (football, basketball and baseball). He played, coached and umpired baseball. He enjoyed playing golf and driving his Corvette. He was an avid Packers, Badgers and Brewers fan and attended many games. He moved permanently to Florida about two years ago to enjoy the sun and the heat.
Everywhere he went he was known or would leave a memorable impression. He was definitely a people person. He loved life at the beach and lived life to the fullest every day. He had friends, family, stories and jokes. He had unconditional love for his family, even though the pain of living day to day was almost unbearable. But, no matter what, he made the best of it and did it with a smile.
Even though life on this Earth has ended for Harold, his life will go on on this Earth for the rest of us through his memories. He will take a piece of all of us with him as he has left his memories with us snapping his fingers to not only the music, but the beat of his own drum. We will remember him with that big, mischievous smile and cool sunglasses. Love and miss you immensely.
A memorial service will be held at Faith United Methodist Church, W8125 Shady Lane in Ladysmith with Pastor Vicky Strupp officiating. Visitation will be from 9:30-11 a.m. followed by the service.
Harold will be laid to rest at Riverside Cemetery in Ladysmith.
The Nash-Jackan Funeral Home assisted the family with the arrangements.
