Harold Albert was born July 16, 1927 on a farm near Hartington, Nebraska to Isadore and Veronica (Mauch) Sudbeck. As a child he moved to Laurel with his family where they established the Laurel Gamble Store. He served in the United States Navy during World War II in the Pacific Theater on a minesweeper.  After the end of the war, Harold returned to Laurel and graduated from Laurel High School in 1946.  Following graduation, he attended Business College in Chillicothe, Missouri from 1947 to 1948.  Starting in the early 1950’s, Harold owned and operated his own auto repair business, Sudbeck Repair, in Laurel.  He retired in the early 1990’s. 

Harold married Marvalee Schieffer on January 18, 1949 at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Constance.  The couple lived in Laurel and they were blessed with three children, Steve, Kim, and Lea Ann.

Harold was an active member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church.  He enjoyed bowling and golfing and handing out lifesaver mints to everyone he met in town. In retirement, he continued his love of golf, even running a side business of making and repairing golf clubs. He also enjoyed volunteering at the soup kitchen in Sioux City.

He is survived by his sons Steve Sudbeck and Kim Sudbeck of Laurel, daughter and son in law, Lea Ann and Lyle Kathol of Norfolk, six grandchildren and their spouses, Kara and Mark Meisinger of Omaha, Trisha and Brandon Grevson of Norfolk, Laura and Adam Sobotka of Norfolk, Matt and Ashley Kathol of Columbus, Drs.
