He was born to Joseph William and Margaret Evelyn Funderburk in Marlin, Texas on May 24, 1939. He graduated from Marlin High School and was a retired truck driver. Harold also served in the Army. He was a big Bremond Tigers fan. It didn’t matter what sport it was; baseball, basketball, and even volleyball. And he loved watching them play football from his 50-yard line reserved seats. As he got older and his health began to fail he would watch his favorite sports on TV. He will be greatly missed by his children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren that he loved so much.
