About Harold George Renner

As a youth, he planted, developed and nurtured a fruit-tree orchard near Gisborne, N.Z. on land owned by his father, William. He enlisted in the New Zealand army in 1914, and participated in some of the more grisly battles of World War 1. including the Somme and Passchendaele. After discharge in 1918, he returned to N.Z. to find that, in his absence, his father had sold the orchard to others. This caused a great deal of bitterness and resentment, and he emigrated shortly after to the U.S. He settled in Detroit and spent his working life as a skilled tool and die maker, retiring in 1952. He moved to Whittier, North Carolina, where he remained until his death in 1963.
