Harold M. Wilson "Tug", age 95, of Green Bay, passed away on Sunday, September 22, 2013. He was born in Mill Center on October 7, 1917, son of the late Irvin and Amanda (Barlament) Wilson. In 1941, Harold was united in marriage to Edna Hamilton. Together they enjoyed traveling, fishing and working on the family farm until her passing in 1984. Harold worked as a machinist for FMC/Hudson-Sharp for nearly 40 years, a career he truly loved and devoted himself to. He then went on to marry Marie Zemblowski and they too enjoyed traveling and camping. Together they built their retirement home in Howard where they lived for almost 23 years until Marie's passing in 2010. Harold also enjoyed hunting and was an avid Packers and Brewers fan.
