 Harry Samuelson, resting peacefully at 87.
 The former Hollister School District teacher, principal and three-term school board member, passed away January 15, 2015. His active community involvement crossed many paths; from the Lions Club, RTA, AFS, United Methodist Church (UMC), Hollister High School and more.
 Harry spent many years on the Haybaler sidelines doing statistics and writing sports articles about the Balers for the Hollister Free Lance.
 Born in Omaha, NE., he married Virginia Bradford in 1950. Together, they raised two sons and hosted two AFS students during their 57 years of marriage.
 He was preceded in passing by his wife, Virginia (2007), his parents, Harry and Donna Mae Samuelson and sister, Donna Mae Schaal.
 He is survived by sisters, Edith Ann Hult and Mary Fillbach; son, Michael (Kathy); step-daughters, Allison and Stephanie; and son, William.
 Our family would like to thank Dad’s caregivers, Yolanda, Martha, Yvette, Liz and Amy for the wonderful care they provided our father and VNA Hospice for their exceptional service.
