Harold VanDeBerg was born on October 19, 1936 to Henry and Della (Kroon) VanDeBerg in Sioux County, Iowa. Harold grew up in rural Sioux Center, Iowa. Harold was baptized on December 6, 1936 and later confirmed at the First Reformed Church in Sioux Center, Iowa. He attended Sioux Center Elementary School – Welcome #8. On March 22, 1957 Harold was united in marriage to Joan Schoep at her parents’ home in Hull, Iowa. Following their marriage, the couple lived on a farm near Sioux Center, Iowa. In 1967, they moved to a farm near Garretson, South Dakota and remained there until their retirement in 2010 when they moved to Luverne, Minnesota.

Harold was a member of the American Reformed Church in Luverne, where he served as a Deacon. Harold was a farmer throughout his life and he took great pride in being a steward to the land and his Lord. He enjoyed fishing and playing cards – including his favorite game, rook. He loved spending time with family and especially enjoyed attending his grandchildren’s events. Harold also loved hosting people. He made sure there was always time to sit, have a cup of coffee and enjoy some fellowship.
