Ambrosius, Harold H.

December 12, 1924 — July 19, 2020

Harold H. Ambrosius was born in 1924 and passed away on July 19, 2020. He attended Central High School where he was on the football and track teams. After graduation he joined the Navy and was sent to the “Pacific Theatre” during World War II. While he was in the Navy, he was also assigned to the Marines as a medic and wore both uniforms.

Harold was a third-generation streetcar operator in Kansas City. In total his family had over 100 years of service. Harold closed his career driving the bus but his true love was streetcars. He had quite a collection of streetcar memorabilia and traveled around the country to the cities that had operating streetcars or a streetcar museum.

He loved baseball and his children remember going to baseball games at the old Municipal Stadium when the Kansas City Athletics were still here. He had an uncanny memory for players numbers and stats even in old age.

Harold had a wonderful sense of humor and always liked being the “entertainer” in the room. He kept everyone laughing. He worked out at the YMCA everyday until a couple of years ago and prided himself in staying fit.

Harold was married to Peggy Rebholz, who preceded him in death as well as his son, Robert. He is survived by daughter Debra Hoge and James, son Harold Ambrosius Jr, 5 grandchildren, 14 great grandchildren and 4 great-great grandchildren.

Graveside services will be held Saturday, July 25 at 9:30 am at Park Lawn. Please meet at the chapel at Gate 1 for the procession to the gravesite. Donations should be made to St. Jude’s Hospital in his name.
