Okeechobee - Harold Benton Shofffeitt died March 18, 2018. He was born April 6, 1938. He served in the United States Army and the Florida National Guard. He worked for US Customs for 36 years.

He rode motorcycles for over 40 years, and loved his churches, his boats, his trucks, his pets, and playing and singing Gospel music with his friends. Most of all he loved his family. Even as Parkinson's disabled his body, he remained sweet and kind.
