Richard “Dick” Haro was born October 23, 1942, in Kewanee, Illinois, to Richard and Inez (Jensen) Hermann.  He grew up in Yankton, South Dakota, and graduated from Yankton High School in 1960.  He attended Southern State College in Springfield, South Dakota, taking an interest in automotive classes.  He enlisted into the South Dakota Army National Guard and served based out of Yankton.  He married Barbara Wurtz in 1962 and together had five children. In 1986, he married Sandra “Sandy” Keiser, the love of his life, who shared everything with him to the very end.   Dick worked at various places in Yankton including Bob’s Candy, Yankton Press & Dakotan and Kolberg Pioneer as a salesman.  He started his own business, “Haro Enterprises,” at which he bought and sold construction and mining equipment. Most recently he drove for the Yankton Sheriff Department and enjoyed driving the bus for Mount Marty University Athletics.
