Harold Eugene Schinbeckler, 79, of Churubusco, passed away peacefully on September 25, 2023, at his home.\n\nHe was born on June 21, 1944, in Allen County, to the late Franklin and Betty (Smith) Schinbeckler. He spent his formative years in rural Churubusco and graduated from Churubusco High School.\n\nHarold dedicated his life to farming after the death of his brother-in-law. His commitment to his work was evident, retiring from C & A Tool after a commendable 20 years of service. Prior to his time at C & A Tool he worked for Gross Drainage.\n\nHarold, an avid farmer even in his retirement, found comfort in the predictability of nature and the seasons. Farming was not just his livelihood but also his hobby and passion, second only to his devotion to his family. He married his beloved wife, Judith, on December 18, 1965, and their bond was a testament to a love as steadfast as Harold's dedication to the land. \n\nHarold is survived by his wife of 58 years, Judy Schinbeckler; his three children, Tamera (Carson) Templeton, Todd (Colleen) Schinbeckler, and Tonya (Doug) Corson; his sister, Joyce Geiger; his grandchildren, Kodie Corson, Korie Corson, Eryn Zoltec, Kolten Corson, Riley Templeton, and Kyra Schinbeckler; two great-grandchildren, Oaklee and Ariat.\n\nIn addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother, Lester "Pete" Schinbeckler; a grandson, Logan Templeton.\n\nA Celebration of Harold's Life will be held at a later date.\n\nSheets & Childs Funeral Home has been entrusted with these arrangements.
