November 26, 1930 - April 5, 2021
Harold G. Greeley, 90, Elkhart, died 8:30 a.m. Monday, April 5, 2021 at Hubbard Hill Estates. He was born in New Hampshire to George and Gertrude (Clark) Greeley on November 26, 1930. After finishing his schooling, he enlisted in the Army and served in the Personnel Department of the 200th Infantry Rifleman Division from 1951 to 1954 when honorably discharged with the rank of Sergeant. He eventually moved to Goshen, Indiana, for employment. There he met and married Bonnie J. (Grabill) Schmucker on March 19, 1975. Through his marriage he gained five sons, Roger Schmucker, Goshen; Arthur Schmucker, Buchanan, MI; Curtis (Claudia) Schmucker, Pensacola, FL; Gary (Mary) Schmucker, Advance, IN; and Brian (Dawn) Schmucker, Greenfield, IN, all who survive him. At the time of death, he had 11 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. Also surviving are his sister, Ruth Lane of Ohio, and her 3 children, Beverly (Steven) Pollock, Lisa (Kevin) Hines, David (Karen) Lane and their families. He is preceded in death by his wife Bonnie, brother-in-law James Lane, and grandsons Michael Schmucker and Joshua Schmucker. He had many jobs over the years and enjoyed everything he worked at. He spent many years in accounting work at various firms, owned a local golf course for a period of time with Bonnie, was a licensed realtor, and even worked for the USPS at one time as a rural mail carrier. He and Bonnie were very hospitable and giving people. They were always more than willing to open their home and provided countless family meals and fellowship to more people than can be numbered and even provided a place to live if needed. They gave generously to deserving charities and felt blessed to help those less fortunate. Harold enjoyed working with Grace in Jail and made heartfelt and long-term connections with inmates. He made a point of keeping in touch once a person was released; and if he could help further, he definitely would. More recently he enjoyed visiting with and bonding with the young children from Jimtown who came to visit at Hubbard Hill where he made his home the last several years. While there, even with health issues he remained active. He was part of the Hubbard Hill Voices resident choir and led Bible Studies for the residents since more than anything, he loved to share about Jesus. Over his lifetime, he hosted many classes and groups to share about his faith. He was so pleased when a person would come to Christ. He would mentor and keep in touch to help new believers grow in Christ. His faith in his Savior remained constant. Even toward his last days he was confident in the fact that he was going to heaven. Though he didn’t like leaving his earthly family, he was ready and prepared to meet his heavenly family. Visitation will be 4-7 p.m. Thursday, April 8, 2021 and one hour prior to the 11 a.m. funeral service on Friday, April 9, 2021, all at Rieth-Rohrer-Ehret Funeral Home, 311 S. Main St., Goshen.
