Harold Reihman was born in Amana, Iowa, on November 22, 1928, to Jacob and Helen Reihman. He was a graduate of Amana High School. Harold graduated from Iowa State with a degree in engineering. He served two years in the U.S. Air Force with the Strategic Air Command. Harold worked at Amana Refrigeration in Iowa until 1968, when he moved to Connersville, Indiana, for a management position with Philco, which became Philco Ford, which became Visteon. He was plant manager at Visteon for many years, where he was well thought of by all who worked there for his strategy of 'management by walking around'. Harold walked the plant floor every morning, interacting with the employees. Harold and Shirley were prominent and active members of the Connersville community for many years.
