Harold Stegner as the oldest child of Roy & Zora (Haman) Stegner. He was born on a farm in Metamora but later moved to Blooming Grove where he attended school. He later lived with his grandparents in Brookville so he could attend High School as there was no transportation to the high school at that time. He graduated from Brookville High School in 1924.
Harold married Cora Lee Harrop, daughter of Charles and Emma (Kuller)Harrop of Brookville, and they had one daughter, Janice Stegner Landreth.
Harold's interest in electricity led to his opening his own shop, Stegner Electric Shop, at 831 Main in Brookville, property he had purchased from his Hamann grandparents. Harold & Cora also lived in the building and operated the business together.
He was very active in the Brookville Volunteer Fire Department where he served as assistant fire chief for many years.
