Harlow Wendell Dickinson of Glen, MN (Sugar Lake), formerly of Mora, MN, passed away on October 5, 2015 at Abbott Northwestern Hospital.  He was 82 years old.

Harlow was born June, 28, 1933 at home in Comfort Township, Kanabec County, MN to Wendell and Violet (Johnson) Dickinson.  He graduated from Mora High School in 1952.  He served in the National Guard for 10 years.  He married his high school sweetheart Eileen Lucht on August 14, 1954.  From this marriage 5 children were born.  Many fond memories were made on the farm followed by a move to town in 1972. 

Harlow was employed at Blaw Knox for several years and then at the local hardware store in Mora.  The majority of his career was at Gorham Oien Mechanical where he was employed as a pipe fitter/welder.  He retired in 1995 as a union member of Local 539.  He was a member of Grace Lutheran Church of Mora and Bethesda Lutheran Church of Malmo. 

He enjoyed hunting, fishing, dancing, playing cards and spending time with his family at Sugar Lake.  Many knew him as quite a “character” and a man with a great sense of humor and quick wit.  He will be truly missed by all who knew and loved him. 

He was preceded in death by his parents and two infant brothers. 

Harlow is survived by his wife Eileen; children Brad (Mary Kay) , Barry (Colette), Barb Neitzel (Kurt), Brenda, Kelly Oehrlein (Chuck) and 11 grandchildren, one great grandchild and sister Genell Klande; other relatives and friends.
