Harold L. “Beaner” Bean, 75, Marathon, died Monday, Sept. 26, 2016, under the care of Ministry Hospice at his home surrounded by family.

He was born July 16, 1941, in Stratford, the son of the late Charles and Helen (Schwickerath) Bean. On Dec. 5, 1964, he married Audrey, the daughter of the late Harvey and Bernice Bohman at St. Joseph Catholic Church, Stratford. She preceded him in death on April 6, 1998.

Harold proudly served four years in the United States Marine Corp. He began his career in law enforcement as chief of police for Stratford followed by 30 plus years with the Marathon County Sheriff’s Department retiring as a detective sergeant. Harold and Audrey owned and operated Someplace Else in Edgar. He also enjoyed working with great friends at Woodward Auctions and Wausau Sales.

Survivors include his children, Jeffrey (Carrie) Bean, Antigo, Gregory (Michelle) Bean, Marathon, Connie (Dale) Frieders, Marathon, and Carrie (Chris) Kaiser, Stratford. He was lucky enough to find a best friend and companion in Karen George.

Besides Audrey and his parents, he was preceded in death by brothers, William “Neuman”, Donavan, Robert and Glenn Bean; and a brother-in-law, Larry Bohman.

A funeral service was held at 11 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 29, 2016, at Zion Lutheran Church, 700 N. 2nd Avenue, Stratford. Pastor Sue Eidahl presided. Burial was in St. Joseph Cemetery, Stratford.
