It was October 14, 2020. The weather was crisp, the corn was dry, the combines were rolling; and God called Darlo Eugene Harnack home.
Darlo was born on December 18, 1939 in North Hero Township to Roy and Ruth (Delong) Harnack. He was a lifelong member of Our Saviors Lutheran Church in Lamberton. He attended Walnut Grove Highschool and graduated in 1959. Darlo was Married to Judie (Nelson) October 4, 1959 and soon added two boys, Jeff and Brian to the family.
Darlo spent his life doing the only thing he ever wanted to do, farming, planting his last crop this spring. When Darlo had spare time, he enjoyed playing cards with the guys, driving through implement lots, and mowing. Darlo also was able to enjoy many fishing trips to Pierre and Canada. Grandpa Darlo was his favorite title, he loved telling stories, joking, and being an active part of his grandkids and great grandkids lives. He will be so deeply missed.
Darlo is survived by his wife of 62 years, Judie, his son Jeff, and daughter in law Kim (Matt)Grunewald. Grandchildren, Chelsi (Clint) Engen, Jared (Nicole) Harnack, Sammie (Cody) Harnack, and Marissa (Taylor) Leuthold.

He is also survived by his siblings, Janet (Ardell) Anderson, Donna Frank, Bill (Lucy) Harnack, Eilene (Don) Stanek, and Leroy (Nancy) Harnack. He is preceded in death by his son, Brian, his parents, Roy & Ruth, and his brother, Durmont.
