Obituary: Harold E. Ahlers (May 7, 1915 – July 7, 2013)

Harold E. Ahlers
Harold E. Ahlers died July 7, 2013, after a brief illness. He was born on May 7, 1915, in Dayton, Ohio, and spent his childhood there. As a young man, he joined the Dayton-based National Cash Register Company (NCR) as a repair mechanic. Much of his service work was in Madison, Wis., where he met and married Irene Zillmer in 1938. They settled in Dayton while Harold continued to work with NCR until 1942. Harold joined the Civilian Corps as part of the WWII defense efforts and was sent to Haines, Alaska, as part of the crew constructing the Alaska Highway. He returned home in 1944, resuming his job with the NCR and chose to transfer to California. After many years in Southern California, he rose to the management/administrative position, necessitating multiple moves within Northern California and the West Coast. In 1977, Harold retired from NCR; a year later, he and Irene moved to the California coast, as they had fallen in love with Crescent City.

Harold was a master draftsman and model builder, particularly of boats and trains. He also collected, restored and loved antique clocks, crafting many parts by hand. Not only was Harold a voracious reader, but an author as well, writing many magazine articles, short stories and a novel. He was a walking library of knowledge regarding maritime history as well as the history of trains, boats and automobiles. Also, he would happily explain, in detail, how and why just about anything “mechanical” worked. He loved his many hobbies, his home, family, Crescent City and his “church family” at Grace Lutheran. Harold’s faith was solid and unshakable. He was kind, loving, and known as a true “gentleman” in every way.


Obituary: William George Beegle (May 1, 1947 – June 6, 2013)

William George Beegle
Beegle served in the U.S. Air Force and was a Vietnam Veteran. He had a long history of working in the mental health field including as an Executive Director at TRTF, Inc., and was also a long haul truck driver before becoming a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. Beegle was a longtime resident of Crescent City where he worked as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for Del Norte County, the State of California, and his own private practice. He retired from the State of California in October of last year.

Beegle was a one of a kind character and those who knew him, loved him. He was sometimes sassy, sometimes sweet but always a good friend. He was there to listen, lend a helping hand, share a laugh or enjoy a martini. He would give you the shirt off of his back and make sure you had shoes to match (preferably custom Nikes, but we can’t all be quite so awesome like Beeg). He didn’t simply live life, he truly enjoyed it. The conversations were rich, the food and drinks plentiful and the good times were guaranteed. His spirit will live on in the colorful memories we shared of our dear BeegDog. Beegle loved to ride his Harley and travel the open road. At the time of his death, he was on his way to Laconia, New Hampshire, for the rally there as part of his cross country ride.
