Harold A. Sandstede, born to Lawrence & Madge Sandstede, died in the comfort of hospice care with loving daughter and favorite dog by his side.
Harold is survived by daughters Kristin & Heather, grandchildren Natalie & Garrett and siblings
Jacque, (Roger), Jan (Ron), & Steve.
Harold briefly attended the Naval Academy and Augustana college prior to becoming a federal employee in Hebbronville, Texas. He worked as an anti-smuggling agent in Kansas City, Missouri and retired from his post as a special agent in Lincoln, Nebraska. After retirement, Harold enjoyed serving his community building homes, pruning trees and attending any event that involved his family, agriculture, antique tractors or a cup of black coffee. He was loved fiercely and will be remembered as a charismatic, sharp-witted, chivalrous man whose family was always important to him. Diligent worker, playful jokester, photographer, superb scrambled egg-maker, loving Dad, brother & ‘grouchy Grandpa’, Harold lives on in the hearts, minds & conversations of all who loved him.
The family would like to thank the teams at Bryan Hospital, Eastmont Senior living & The Monarch in Lincoln, Nebraska. The care provided in the last several years is much appreciated. They served not just as caretakers and healthcare workers, but also friends and family to our Dad and all the residents. We will always be grateful for their compassionate care, loving spirits and welcoming hearts.
A celebration of life will be scheduled later this year in Harold’s beloved Rock County, Minnesota.
