Harry was born in Seward, Nebraska on September, 7 1941, to Clair and Thelma (Ridenour) Tinnell. Harry’s first school years were in Western Nebraska. His family moved to Iowa in 1949. He attended Grand River High School in Grand River, Iowa and graduated in 1959.

At the age of 12 years, he yielded his life to the Lord. This was a life-long commitment which meant everything to him.

On October 18, 1963, he was united in marriage to Janiece Vlieger. They had 42 wonderful years together. Janiece passed away from cancer on February 24, 2006. To this union four children were born, Jeffrey, Janette, Jerrold, and James.

Harry was raised in Iowa, but left there after High School. He worked at various jobs in his life. The last 22 years of his working life before retiring was spent operating Interclean of Grand Island for 22 years. He made many wonderful friends during this endeavor who still miss his carpet cleaning skills and expertise.

On February 3, 2007, Harry married Margaret Ann (Hart) Beck of Ogallala, NE. They lived in Ogallala until both of their health failed. Then they moved to Grand Island, NE to the Good Samaritan Village.

Those left to cherish his memory include his wife, Margaret Tinnell of Grand Island; daughter and son-in-law, Janette and Clyde Williams of Dannebrog; three sons and daughter-in-laws, Jeff Tinnell of Salmon, ID, Misty Tinnell of Salmon, ID, Jerrold and Linda Tinnell of Chapman and James and Sheila Tinnell of Grand Island; 18 grandchildren; 31 great-grandchildren; a nephew, Scott Peterson; a special friend, Ashley of Iowa; a niece, Kate Peterson & son, Landon; and special friend, Tyler of Iowa; along with many other friends and relatives.
