Harold H. Haller

Hanna City – Harold H. Haller, 82, of Hanna City, IL passed away Wednesday, August 1, 2012 at 12:35 pm at Methodist Medical Center, Peoria, IL.
He was born in Peoria, September 24, 1929, the son of Herman P. and Lois E. (Greenfield) Haller. Harold married Patricia A. Williams March 1, 1952 in Farmington.
She survives along with four children, Mike Haller of West Peoria, Lynn (Rod) Garrison of Mason City, Kris (Mike) Olson of Pleasant Plains, and Jay (Darla) Haller of Morton; seven grandchildren, Shawn, Tyler, Scott, Jesse, Wade, Taylor, and Tanner; two great grandchildren, Lucas and Logan; and one sister, Eula Rafferty of Hanna City.
Preceding him in death were his parents, two brothers, Jack Haller and Marvin Beecher, three step brothers, and one step sister.
Harold first worked at the Phillips 66 in Hanna City for 18 years from 1952 until 1970 and in 1970 he became a licensed insurance agent and operated the Shelter Insurance Agency from 1970 until 2007.
He was a member of the Hanna City United Methodist Church where he sang in the choir. He was also a member of Lancaster Lodge #106 AF & AM, Glasford and Hanna City American Legion Post #212. Harold was a Hanna City Village Trustee for 12 years and Mayor for 12 years.
Harold was a US Army veteran, serving during the Korean Conflict.
Harold developed a widespread reputation among his Phillips 66 customers for his honesty, integrity, fairness, patience, and dependability. This reputation followed him when he left the station and opened his insurance agency. Taking care of his customers was his primary concern, as evidenced by their loyalty to him during his 37 year career as an insurance agent.
Those who knew Harold recognized that he was a soft-spoken man of few words, but his actions spoke volumes. His service to the community ranged from locking up the post office every night to serving three terms as mayor; from singing in the church choir to leading the American Legion color guard; from organizing annual bike-a-thons to offering a cup of hot coffee and a listening ear; from responding to late-night complaints about flooded basements to giving many local boys their first job; and from serving as church trustee to lowering the flag at the firehouse every evening.

Services will be Tuesday, August 7th at 10:30 AM at the Hanna City United Methodist Church where visitation will be on Monday, August 6th from 5 to 7 pm. Rev. Bob DeBolt will officiate. Burial, with military honors, will be in North Limestone Township Cemetery, Hanna City.
