He owned and operated Harold’s Tap for 46 years.  After many years of hard work he retired up north to his favorite place: the cabin.  His love of gardening and the outdoors brought many years of enjoyment.  He loved his flowers, gardening, fishing, and the joy of watching his family enjoy the cabin up north.  He will always be remembered for his kind heart and willingness to help anyone, with his many tools at hand.  He will be deeply missed.

Survivors include his loving wife of sixty-three years, Doris; his children, Cheryl Vague of Green Bay, WI, Jackie Vague (Karl) Nelson of Racine; six grandchildren, Emily Nelson, Joanne Vague, Kenny Vague, Billy Vague, Christina Vague and Lynn Callies; eight great-grandchildren; brother, Merle Vague of San Jose, CA; brother-in-law, Ron Burmeister of Racine; sister-in-law, Nellie Suzka of South Milwaukee; nieces, nephews, other relatives and many dear friends.  In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his son, William Vague.
