Harold R. Secrest
89, of Mooresville, passed away on October 5, 2021 at St Francis Hospital in Mooresville. Harold was born on July 15, 1932 in Owen County Indiana to the late Olive (Norris) and Alfred Secrest.
Harold proudly and honorably served his country in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. Upon returning home from service, he embarked on a career as an engineer for Carrier Corporation for 45 years, before retiring.
Harold enjoyed traveling, ballroom dancing, gardening, restoring old cars and going to car shows. He was also an avid Colts fan and enjoyed having season tickets for many years. Harold was a long-time member of the Bethany Lutheran Church, where he was known as Mr. Fix It, as he donated his mechanical skills to help repair things around the church. He was also a member of the American Legion Post #103 in Mooresville. However, it was his family, especially his grandchildren that brought him joy in his life.
In addition to his parents, he was also preceded in death by a son Harold “Sonny” Secrest.
