Harold Jack Kehn was born on April 5, 1937 in Shell Lake, WI and adopted by Oliver and Pearl Engel. He attended school and was raised in the Iron Range area of Minnesota.
Harold worked on the railroad in the iron mines until he turned 18 years old and then spent the next 47 years as an over the road truck driver. He lived in Buhl, MN until he was 28 years old.
On February 17, 1965 he was united in marriage to Margaret Luella Hagl in Fertile, MN. They lived near Terrebonne, MN for a few years and then moved to Red Lake Falls, MN where they have continued to make their home. To this union four children were born, Michael, Allen, Monica and Jeanne.
He enjoyed hunting, camping, fishing and spending time at the casino where he was known as “Harold Keno”. He was also lovingly known as “Grips”, “Handlebars”, and “Tank”. Harold enjoyed animals especially dogs. He had a skewed sense of humor, made a joke out of almost everything, and was a real redneck.

Harold earned several safety awards through his years as a truck driver logging millions of miles. He traveled through every state except Hawaii.
