Harold Lloyd Scalf, 90, passed away peacefully with his wife at his side at Bluegrass Care Navigators in Lexington, Kentucky on Monday, November 1, 2021. He was born in Elizabethtown, Indiana on August 22, 1931 to the late Harold Everett and Myrtle Elizabeth Beshear Scalf, the eldest of six children.
Harold served in the Navy for four years during the Korean War as an aircraft electronics technician. While still in the Navy, he married his wife of 68 years, Evelyn Elizabeth Brower, on December 12, 1952. After receiving an honorable discharge, Harold earned a degree in electrical engineering, graduating from the University of Utah with high honors. During his studies, he was instrumental in bringing Utah’s educational television channel, KUED, on air. After graduation, he accepted employment at General Electric in Syracuse, New York. He was later employed by Magnavox in Fort Wayne, Indiana where he did extensive work for the Navy’s Sonobuoy program, with some of his microcircuit designs being featured in IEEE magazine. He completed his professional career with American Microcircuits in Pocatello, Idaho.
Harold developed a deep love for Jesus Christ early in life through his visits with his beloved Baptist minister. At age 17, he joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where he always remained a faithful member, including serving a mission in Beardstown, Illinois with Evelyn.
In addition to his wife, Harold is survived by four of his six children: Daniel (Elizabeth) Scalf of Peoria, Arizona, Stephen (Cynthia) Scalf of Carlisle, Kentucky, Mary Neal of Pocatello, Idaho, and Rebecca (Theodore) Tateoka of Hazelton, Idaho; 20 grandchildren; and 23 great-grandchildren. He is also survived by three siblings: Susie Jones, Judy (David) Lee, and William Scalf.
Also preceding him in death were two children Robert Wesley Scalf and Elizabeth Ann Scalf; brothers Robert Alan Scalf and Richard Dean Scalf.
His family will treasure his memory as one who deeply loved his Savior, Jesus Christ, and who always strove to live his life in a way that reflected that love.
