Obituary for Harold A. Ferguson, Sr., D.O.

Harold A. “Fergy” Ferguson, Sr., D.O., age 91, of Eaton, OH passed away on Saturday, January 2, 2021 at home with his family by his side. 

He was born January 22, 1929 in Roanoke, VA to the late Bertice and Mildred (East) Ferguson.  Fergy graduated in 1947 from Jefferson High School in New Lebanon, OH, then received his undergraduate degree from The Ohio State University and his Doctor of Osteopathy from Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine in Missouri in 1956.  He interned at Grandview Hospital in 1957 and opened a private practice as a family physician in Eaton, OH in 1958.  Recognizing the expanding medical needs of his community, he co-founded the Preble County Medical Center in 1965 with the vision of better meeting those needs.  He continued his practice there until his retirement in 1993, serving his patients and the community with compassion and wisdom.  He also served as Director of the Preble County Mental Health Board. 

In addition to his parents, Fergy was also preceded in death by his sisters Elizabeth Sue Ferguson Pierce and Rebecca Jean Ferguson.  He is survived by his wife of 48 years, Alice K. (Cook) Ferguson of Eaton, OH; son Dr. Allen (Missy) Ferguson, Jr. of Eaton, OH; daughters Kim Ferguson of Charlotte, NC and Denise Ferguson of Lemont, IL; grandchildren Sarah, Andrew, Lauren, Emily and Natalie Ferguson.  He was a wonderful husband, father and physician, an avid golfer, and a friend to all.
