He was at one time a master plumber in Butler County, a skilled carpenter, electrician and welder. He was very mechanically minded, with a motto, 'Do it right the first time.' Harold loved his family, gardening, fishing and enjoyed a good meal. If he liked you, you knew it, and if he didn?t, you knew that as well. He was a man from a different era.

Tarter of Thailand; two daughters and their husbands, Kathie E. and Bruce Holt of Oregon, and Brenda and Reid Heidtman of Middletown; seven grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.

TRACHSEL, Jim - A former Somerset High School teacher and coach was shot and killed Sunday evening at his Boyle County residence, allegedly by one of his neighbors.
Jim Trachsel, 63, was on a riding lawnmower outside his home at around 5 p.m. on Sunday when he was shot several times. Trachsel fell to the ground unconscious, said a Danville Police Department report.
Trachsel was taken to Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center where he was dead on arrival, Boyle County Coroner James Ramey said. Trachsel died of gunshot wounds to the chest and head, Ramey said.
Jack A. Caldwell, 79, of Danville, was taken into custody late Sunday afternoon and charged with first-degree murder. Witnesses had told officers that they saw Caldwell shoot Trachsel with a .22-caliber rifle, but Caldwell was "not present when officers arrived" at the scene about 5:15 p.m., police said. He "appeared later" and was charged and arrested, police said. Caldwell made statements to first responders that he shot Trachsel in self defense, according to Danville Police.
Trachsel was a physical education teacher, and assistant football coach under Jerry Johns, at Somerset High School for several years beginning in the mid-1960s. He later moved on to Danville High School, where he eventually became assistant principal before closing out his career in 2000 after 13 years as principal at Jennie Rogers Elementary School in Danville.
“You can’t say enough good things about Jim,” said Johns, who brought Trachsel onto his staff in 1965. “I hated it when he left for Danville ... but he had a great career.
“He loved kids, and people in our community loved Jim and (his wife) Bonnie,” Johns added. “He did a great job coaching our defense. Our kids thought the world of him.”
Former Somerset Mayor Jim Williams, who was assistant principal and later principal at SHS during Trachsel’s tenure there, remembered Trachsel as “an excellent person.”
“This is a great tragedy,” Williams said. “He was a hard-working P.E. and health teacher, and a fine coach. He was a great asset to our school system.”
Both Ramey and Assistant Danville Police Chief Jay Newell declined to say exactly how many times Trachsel was shot or how many shots were fired. An autopsy was planned yesterday at the state medical examiner's office in Frankfort.
Newell told the Danville Advocate-Messenger the police department is "investigating reports of a long-standing property line dispute" between Trachsel and Caldwell.
Police said a .22 caliber semi-automatic rifle was recovered near where Trachsel was lying.
After his arrest, Caldwell complained of chest pains and was taken by ambulance to Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center, police said. Caldwell was also treated for a laceration suffered during his arrest. He was admitted as a patient late Sunday and was in fair condition late Monday morning, said hospital spokeswoman Mary Begley. His room reportedly was under armed guard, according to a spokesperson at the Boyle County Detention Center, where Caldwell had not been booked as of late Monday morning.
************************************************************
Dear Editor:   Aug. 27, 2004- Everyone has read about the horrible and senseless death of Jim Trachsel. While it is true that Jim was a wonderful educator and there is no doubt his impression will be left on the school system for a long time to come, one thing that I would like to mention is that at the time of Jim's death he was employed as a correctional officer at Northpoint Training Center. I had the pleasure to work with Jim at the prison, and he was a fine officer. For a man to retire and have his time to himself but instead take a position at the prison, endure the strict training that we all must complete and deal with those members of society that no one else wants to deal with, shows Jim's true heart and soul and how much he cared for this community and its people. I spent many a lunch break talking with Jim, and he is the one who convinced me to go back to college, which I am now doing, to obtain my degree in criminal justice. Even though he was retired he was still reaching out to help educate and inspire. So although Jim will be remembered about his contributions to the school system, we who worked with him at Northpoint also miss him very much. He was a great man and a great officer. I will dedicate my education and my future career to the memory of Jim Trachsel. He really was Northpoint's finest.
