Harold Huiras

Harold P. Huiras of Fredonia died Monday, Dec. 3, at Sharon S. Richardson Hospice Center in Sheboygan Falls.  He was 87.

Mr. Huiras was born on Feb. 13, 1931, to Alois and Martha Pirrung Huiras on the family farm on Belgium-Kohler Road in the Town of Fredonia. He attended local schools and graduated from Random Lake High School before serving in the U.S. Army.  

On July 10, 1954, Mr. Huiras married Arlene Weiland Holy Cross Catholic Church in the Town of Belgium.

The couple lived in Alaska while Mr. Huiras was stationed there. After he was discharged from the Army, they settled on the family farm.  They later built a new home and continued farming there.  

Mr. Huiras loved farming until the end and said he liked “staying at the top of the game.” Good equipment and a hard work ethic helped make this possible. His motto of work hard play hard was one he passed onto his children.

Mr. Huiras was a longtime member of Divine Savior Catholic Parish, St. Rose of Lima church, and was an avid hunter and fisherman. He was a board member of the Random Lake Co-Op for more than 20 years. He loved a good game of sheepshead with family and friends.

Survivors include his wife; children Debbie Braby of Random Lake, Lori (Mike) Baumann of Fredonia, Thomas (Chrissy) and Joe (Kandy), both of Random Lake; daughter-in-law Laura (Jeff) Huiras-Thoms of Fredonia; 13 grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; brother James of Random Lake; sisters JoAnne (John) Heiting of South Carolina and Marie Staral of West Bend.  

He was preceded in death by his parents, daughter Kathryn; son Robert; sister Meredith Meloy; brother Alois Huiras; brothers-in-law Tony Staral and Delbert Meloy; and sisters -in-law Jean Huiras and Agnes Huiras.

A Mass of Christian burial will be held at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 6, at Divine Savior Catholic Parish, Holy Cross Church.  Father Todd Budde will preside.

Visitation will be at 3 p.m. Thursday at the church until the time of the service.

A private burial will be held on Friday at St. Rose Cemetery with military honors.

Memorials are suggested to Divine Savior Catholic School or to the Camo Quilt Project in Plymouth.
