In Memory of Lion Harold Hein
Harold D. Hein    8/31/1934 to 4/17/2019

Harold D. Hein, Small Town Boy Who Saw the World, Dies at 84. Born on August 31, 1934, in Grainfield, Kansas to Matthew and Julia Hein, Harold Dean Hein was the
youngest of six children and was given the nickname of “Tweety.” During his childhood, he played various sports, including basketball and baseball. At the
University of Kansas, Harold was the manager of the track team. Most importantly, while attending KU, Harold met the love of his life, Martha Ivon Olson, and their love
story lasted 63 years. They married in 1957 and raised their family of four children in Arvada, Colorado. After graduation, Harold earned his CPA license and started
working for the firm of Arthur Young, becoming a partner in 1969. He also served as an MP in the Army Reserve, shortly after college. After leaving Arthur Young/Ernst
and Young in 1990, Harold never retired but continued to help clients, family, and friends with their taxes and estate planning.
 
The Rocky Mountain Lions Club Eye Institute was lucky to have Harold as their treasurer for 30 years.  Lion Harold joined the Denver Lions Club in 1973 and served the Club as a Director and Treasurer from 1989 to 2007. He was a Progressive Melvin Jones and Life Member of the Club. He was awarded Lions of Year in 2000. Until this last year, he maintained perfect attendance at meetings and functions of the club.
 
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
 
Donations can be made in his honor to the Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Institute
