Harold G. Stroud, 76, a 60 year resident of the Wenatchee area, died Friday, January, 29, 2010, at home. He fought a courageous battle with cancer. He was born March 28, 1933, in Melbourne, AR to Alford and Ella Stroud. He received his early education in Melbourne and graduated from high school there in 1951.

In 1969, he married Frances Pratt, who had two boys, which made seven children at home. Harold retired from the WSU Tree Fruit Research Center and later was co-owner of E & S Orchard in Orondo. Harold loved being outdoors and enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping and boating. If Harold heard the perch were biting, you would be sure to see Harold at that lake! Harold loved walking the trail with his dog, Jackie, daily.
