Harold Breitenfeldt

May 18, 1939 — June 17, 2024

Harold E. Breitenfeldt, age 85 of Wolf Lake, MN passed away at his home on June 17, 2024.

Harold was born in Corliss Township, Perham to Edwin and Luella (Brasel) Breitenfeldt. He was baptized and confirmed at St. John's Lutheran Church of Corliss. He graduated from Perham High School in 1957. Harold was united in marriage with Elaine K. Ziegler on September 10, 1960 in Detroit Lakes, Mn. Harold and Elaine lived in Moorhead, MN, where he worked and was a member of the Air National Guard.
