June 8, 1930 - March 29, 2022
Vernon - Harold A. MacPeek, age 91, it is with deep sadness we announce the passing of Harold A. MacPeek. Tuesday March 29, 2022 is the day we lost a great husband, father, and friend. He was born in Sussex on June 8, 1930, to the late Allan and Mildred (VanSyckle) MacPeek and moved to Vernon when he was in 5th grade. Harold was a father, farmer, and firefighter at heart. As a 70-year member of the Vernon Fire Department, he was committed to saving lives. He served as chief from 1960-1961, Treasurer from 1973 to 1985, President from 1986 to 1987, and a Trustee for the fire department. Even though he retired from driving the trucks, he was dedicated for life, and even attended a drill the day before his passing. His devotion did not go unnoticed, considering he was given his own parking spot accompanied by a sign. If the above wasn’t enough, Harold was a member of the Vernon Grange and the National Farmers Organization (NFO). He was also employed by the Vernon Road Department from 1973 to 1994 and worked at many Vernon Township Rabies Clinics. At one point in your life, you likely saw him plowing snow so we could all get to school or work the next day. He was also an active member of the former St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Vernon and was currently a member of Holy Counselor Lutheran Church in Vernon. Harold was predeceased by his beloved wife of 71 years, Reba on January 19, 2022. He is survived by his daughters, Gale and Phyllis; his brother, Charles; his niece and nephew, Roni and Charles Jr.; his “grandchildren,” Tracey, and Glenn Milarczyk”; his two “grankittys,” Patches and Chocolate. Graveside funeral services will be held on Monday, April 4, 2022, at 11am at Clove Cemetery, Wantage, NJ. Due to the increase in COVID cases, the family would appreciate that all in attendance please wear a mask. In lieu of flowers, the family requests those who wish to express sympathy to donate to the Vernon Township Fire Department, P.O. Box 461, Vernon, NJ 07462 or to the Holy Counselor Lutheran Church 68 Sand Hill Road, Sussex, NJ 07461 in Harold’s name. Funeral arrangements are entrusted to Pinkel Funeral Home, 31 Bank Street (Route 23), Sussex. Online condolences may be offered to the family at www.pinkelfuneralhome.com.
