OREGON – Dr. Harold F. Best of Oregon died Wednesday, June 6, 2018, after a fall at home.

He was born July 15, 1941, in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. As a clinical psychologist, he enjoyed his private practice for more than 30 years. A perfect Sunday consisted of doing the New York Times crossword in ink, a football game on TV, and an entire pot of coffee. He enjoyed good tobacco, good company, and a good read.

He will be missed by his wife, Miranda; children, Bryce (Amie) Austin, Lyrah (Ned) Austin-Bushnell, Alex (Sabrina) Best, and Marissa Best; grandchildren, Liam and Kellen Austin; plus many others who loved his dry humor and gentle confidence.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Diane; children, Julie, Andy and Stevie Best; brothers, Michael and Roger; and sister, Mary.

An open-house celebration of his life will be from 4 to 7 p.m. June 22 at Maxon Riverside Restaurant 1469 state Route 2, Oregon.

Instead of flowers, memorials will be offered to Harold’s favorite charities.
