Harold Eugene Mouser passed away peacefully in Kokomo, Indiana, on Monday, April 2, 2018 surrounded by family. Harold was born July 25, 1934, in Lutesville, Missouri, and was married to his devoted wife, Linda, for 64 years.

Harold was a beloved and well-known figure in Kokomo – as a friend, businessman, and family member. Harold was founder and owner of Mouser’s Auto Service, which he opened in 1988 and sold upon retirement in 2011. Prior to his namesake auto business, Harold owned Marathon Gas and Auto Repair in downtown Kokomo from 1966 to 1988. He served as president of the Kokomo Exchange Club, a community service association, and attended Victory Church of God. Harold was an avid and winning sprint car racer from 1954 to 1988, most often at the Kokomo Speedway. His favorite hobby was his motorcycle, which he rode with his wife Linda as members of the Gold Wing Road Riders Association “Chapter J” from 1978 to 2014, and which took them around the United States. But his greatest passion and proudest achievement in life was his family, especially his many grandchildren and great-grandchildren whom he loved and supported. He will be remembered as a man of his word with a quick wit and a big heart.

Harold is preceded in death by his parents Melvin Sylvester Mouser and Mandy Bell Abernathy Mouser; sister Virginia Wood; and brothers William Mouser and McCoy Mouser. He is survived by his wife Linda; brother Raymond (Sally) Mouser, Paris, MO; sisters Elta Barrett, Wood River, IL, Glenda (Kermit) Angel, Marble Hill, MO, and Clara (Howard) Brown, Scopus, MO; sister-in-law Sue Mouser; children John Mouser, Kokomo, Jeffrey Mouser, Kokomo, Julie (Gary) Prim, Nashville, TN, and Jill (Phil) Griggs, Greenwood, IN; grandchildren Cari Abrams, Elijah Abrams, Kenzi Mouser, Leslie Carlson, and Mandi Mouser, all of Kokomo, Amy Castillo, Greentown, IN, Cory Prim, Nashville, TN, Derek (April) Mouser, Russiaville, IN, Emily Abrams, Greenwood, IN, and Hillary Prim, New York, NY; 25 great-grandchildren; and 1 great-great grandchild.

My wife (Judy) and I met Harold & Linda through the Gold Wing Road Riders Association and immediately became good friends with them. We shared a number of memorable occasions and often comment on the good times and the wonderful friendship enjoyed. Our heartfelt thanks to both Harold & Linda and be assured, we will miss Harold as he begins his next journey.

We are very sorry to hear that Harold has left us. He was dad's best friend and I enjoyed working at the Marathon Station for Harold. I learned a lot from Harold while at the Marathon station. Sometimes I would arrive after school to find out I had to put a car or truck back together that someone else had taken apart earlier in the day. It was a challenge but we got it done with his guidance. I also enjoyed working with Harold and dad on the sprint car Harold drove. This was a lot of fun and I learned a lot about sprint cars and was proud to have been allowed to paint the car one year. Once in a while Harold would send me to the house to get his motorcycle and bring it back to the station. I have a lot of good memories of Harold and the entire family. We will miss you Harold and we will be praying for the family during this time.

I love you all so much and wish we could be there. Uncle Harold always loved me unconditionally. His wonderful hugs warmed my heart. I always remember when we were all at Grandma Mouser's house and someone would upset me (as kids often do), he would say come here sis and hug me and make it all better. Whatever wrong I thought had been inflicted on me, he hugged away. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
