Mr. Harold Penner, age 85, of Murray, Kentucky, died on Tuesday, June 14, 2022, at the Murray – Calloway County Hospital.

Mr. Penner was born in Rosenort, Manitoba Canada, on December 15, 1936, to the late Edward and Helena (Goossen) Penner. He was the ninth child in a family of fifteen. Mr. Penner was a farmer and carpenter. He always enjoyed disaster relief projects. He instilled in us the love of travel and adventure. He was a member of the Harmony Mennonite Church.
