Obituary

Harold Rudolph Ambrose Hergott was born on April 9, 1937 to Martha (nee Duerr) and Leander Hergott of Bruno, Sask. In 1940, Harold and his family moved to their farm by Dixon, west of Humboldt. Harold attended Dixon School and later furthered his education at Saskatoon Business College. He returned to Humboldt to help his dad farm and to work at Schenn’s Hatchery as the bookkeeper. In 1959, Harold married the love of his life, Joan Ewen, of Engelfeld, Sask. The couple moved to the Hergott farm where they raised four children and farmed together for 56 years. In 1997, Harold and Joan moved to live in Humboldt, while continuing to farm. Harold was a dedicated farmer with a strong work ethic. Faith, family, horses, farming and dancing all held a special place in Harold’s life. His love of horses led him to spend many hours raising, training, and showing horses, as well as sharing this passion with others by giving sleigh rides. Harold was a founding member of the Humboldt Agricultural Society, the Humboldt Horse Club, and the Humboldt Riding Club. His pastimes included instructing the 4-H Lighthorse club, coaching and playing hockey, racing Skidoos, and playing cards with friends. Later in life, Harold was a member of the Humboldt German dance group, Tanzkreis, as well as the Knights of Columbus. A talented craftsman, Harold made horse carts, harnesses and scaled toy replicas for his grandchildren. In 2018, Harold moved into the St. Joseph’s wing at St. Mary’s Villa due to Alzheimer’s disease and while there, he received kind and excellent care.
