Harold Eugene Zwiener

December 24, 1928 — January 10, 2023

Harold Eugene Zwiener, age 94, of Garnett, Kansas, passed away on Tuesday, January 10, 2023, at Guest Home Estates in Garnett, Kansas.

Harold was born on December 24, 1928, in Garnett, Kansas. He was the third of three children born to Fredrick Herman Zwiener and Grace Mae (Hand) Zwiener. Harold was born one quarter of a mile west of where he lived 73 of his 94 years. He graduated from Garnett High School in 1946.

On November 19, 1949, he was united in marriage to Ruth Marie Hermreck, in Garnett, Kansas. This union was blessed with three children, Dwight, Kendall and Diane.

Harold managed the Kenneth R. Johnson Oilfield Supply store in Garnett, for twenty years. He then formed Zwiener Brothers Construction with his brother, Raymond, in 1974. Following Raymond's death Harold continued on as Zwiener Construction until retiring in 2015. In addition to his construction business, Harold farmed throughout his life. Harold maintained and repaired his equipment, to make sure it met his standards. He served several years on the Pottawatomie Watershed Committee Board.

Harold took pride in everything he did, from mowing the yard to planting the garden or taking care of his fruit trees. If you knew Harold, you knew there was only one way to do it, Harold's Way. In his free time he enjoyed bowling, hunting, fishing and water skiing. He loved to travel, his favorite destination was anywhere he could go. He particularly enjoyed family trips to Table Rock lake and the Lake of the Ozarks. It has been said that some of the grandchildren might have had "stubborn" Harold wrapped around their finger, however all of his great grandchildren were absolutely spoiled by him.

He was preceded in death by his parents; daughter-in-law, Nancy Zwiener in 2015; brother, Raymond Zwiener; and sister, Ethel Kelly; and one grandson in law, David Scheckel.

Harold is survived by his wife of 73 years, Ruth Zwiener; his children, Dwight Zwiener, Kendall Zwiener and Alberta Bishop, and Diane Harrington and Jay; six grandchildren, Mike Zwiener and Kim, Chris Zwiener, Angie Scheckel, Amber Miller and Ryan, Ethan Harrington and Lisa Huhman, Waylon Zwiener and Elvira; nine great grandchildren, and two great great grandsons; and his nieces and nephews.
