Harry Theodore Yehle was the fifth born son to Alois "Louis" and Mary (Washburn) Yehle in the town of Florence, Wisconsin. Just days after Harry's first birthday, his father was killed in an electrical accident at the power station where he was employed. His mother went on to raise all five boys alone.
Harry apprenticed as a molder with Vilter Manufacturing Company in Milwaukee, Wisconsin during the 1930 depression years. Later he became an automobile service supervisor. He tried to enlist in the Army during World War II but was rejected based on his poor eyesight and because his civilian job was deemed too important to the war effort.
He married Natalie Genevieve Berzowski in March 1936, and they celebrated the birth of their first child, Dale George, in 1942. A second son, Bruce Charles, followed in 1944 and a third son, Ralph John, in 1947. Bruce was killed in March of 1964 in an auto accident, just a month before Dale's wedding.
Harry later worked in the City of Milwaukee engineering department for over 20 years. The family attended Westminster Presbyterian Church in Milwaukee. After retiring he and Natalie spent 12 years travel-trailering the United States and parts of Mexico until Natalie's death in 1984.
Harry died of cancer in 1994 at 81 years of age.
