Harold Leon Schumann

June 06, 1932 - April 14, 2022


Harold Leon, son of Leon and Alice (Funk) Schumann, was born June 6, 1932, at home north of Fonda, Iowa. He attended a one-room country school until it was closed and then continued school in Fonda through the ninth grade. Harold then spent many years taking care of the family farm after his father passed away. He later acquired his GED.

In the early 1950s, Harold was united in marriage with Mavis Coleman. The couple lived in Fort Dodge and had three children: Wanda, Robert and Roxanne. Shortly thereafter, the couple separated.

On November 1, 1958, Harold married Ruby Frain Bell in Tarkio, Missouri. Three boys were born to this marriage: Kevin, Jody and Harold Jr. The family first lived in Churdan and eventually settled in Templeton. Harold spent many years making a living driving semitrucks, mainly hauling livestock and grain for Friedman Trucking and Garst Seed Corn. During those years, Ruby and Harold raised their three boys and helped raise some grandchildren.

He loved driving and his dogs (especially Yorkies) and John Wayne. Harold spent his retirement watching every western he could. He made sure to never miss Wyatt Earp before the news every afternoon.

On Thursday, April 14, 2022, Harold passed away at Panora Specialty Care in Panora, Iowa, at the age of 89 years, 10 months and 8 days.

Harold is survived by his brother Donald Schumann of Nevada, IA; daughter Wanda Woodbeck (Steve) of Eagle Grove; son Kevin Frederick Schumann of Manning; daughter-in-law April Schumann of Coon Rapids; a son-in-law Bruce Richards; and by many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents; wife Ruby Schumann in 2018; daughter Roxanne Richards; and three sons: Robert Schumann, Jody Schumann and Harold Schumann Jr.
