Harold Eugene Heflin was born Aug. 8, 1939 in Portales to the home of Mary (Phillips) and Marvin Sherman Heflin and died at his home on Sunday morning, Oct. 1, 2023.  Harold grew up in Portales, and was baptized at the age of 16.  The very next Sunday morning he began preaching.  All of his life, Harold faithfully read his Bible on a daily basis.  He was a graduate of Portales High School.  For the remainder of his life, Harold farmed.

On July 14, 1968 in Portales, he was married to Eloise Marie Muse.  The couple had five children, two sons and three daughters.  As a father and later as a grandfather, he enjoyed playing with the little ones.  Being a very positive and upbeat person, with a very gentle soul, he loved to sing and whistle, especially hymns and gospel songs.

Harold liked to keep up with current events, and he enjoyed good food.  Harold was happiest outdoors, working or walking and enjoying God’s creation.  He was a faithful member of the Northside Church of Christ.

Survivors include Eloise, his wife of more than 55 years of their home; two sons and daughters-in-law, Eugene and Brandy Heflin of Midland, TX and Cody and Cheryl Heflin of Mart, TX; three daughters and sons-in-law, Sheri and Shane Walker of Spicewood, TX, Cherie  and Taylor Wilson of Lockhart, TX and Ashley and Ryan Ash of Burlington, CO; 17 grandchildren, Shayland Villa, Andrew Colla, Hudson Heflin, Colton (Megan) Walker, Brittany (Eston) Jones, Trenton Walker, Lauren (Dylan) Watts, Courtney, Kaci, Riley, Blake and Xander Heflin, Jenna Wilson, and Skyler, Autumn, Cooper and Isaac Ash; 10 great-grandchildren; and two sisters, Bobby Jean Morrow of Hot Springs, AR and Darlene Hackett of Portales.  He was preceded in death by both of his parents, a brother, Sherman Marvin Heflin, four sisters, Bertha Marie Heflin, Beulah Mae Osborn, Winnie Pearl Dodson and Margie Lou Rush; a daughter, Lori Lynn Heflin as well as two grandchildren, Robert Wilson and Caleb Ash.
