The son of the late Osvald T. Hansen and Agnes J. (Berntsen) Hansen, Harold was born on November 22, 1938 in Brooklyn, NY.

Harold graduated from Fort Hamilton High School, Brooklyn, in 1956. He honorably and proudly served his country as a member of the US Navy from 1957 to 1963. While stationed in Argentia, Newfoundland, he served as a plane mechanic and even serviced Air Force One during the Eisenhower administration.

After the Navy, he worked with Fishman and Schottenstein Corporation earning his way up the ladder as a store, district and regional manager of Value City Stores. After eleven different moves across the Great Lakes and East Coast, he opened Value City in Newburgh and settled in Cornwall in 1981. He retired in 2000 after a successful 37-year career.

Harold met his wife Marilyn at the social club, Sons of Norway, when he was 20 years old. They were married in 1962. When asked, he always said he chose her because she was the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. They raised three amazing children and were married for 61 years.
