He was born August 31, 1930, in Brazito, Missouri, the son of the late Fred and Marie (Opel) Mueller.
He was united in marriage on March 5, 1961, at Faith Lutheran Church in Jefferson City to Elizabeth Juliann Beck who preceded him in death on August 18, 2010.
Harold worked as a carpenter, a farmer, and as a rural mail carrier for over 30 years. He enjoyed tending to his cattle, working the fields, helping his family and neighbors with projects, and any other need that he could help with.
He was a member of Friedens Church in Brazito where he served on the Church Board and Cemetery Board, Cole County Planning Commission, MFA Oil Board, Lohman Producers Exchange Board, Cole County Soil and Water Board, ASCS Board, and was a Rural Carrier Steward of Jefferson City.
