Harvey LeRoy Wilhelm1944 ~ 2012At approximately 4:00pm on November 24, 2012, Harvey LeRoy Wilhelm passed peacefully from mortality at age 68, surrounded by the love and support of his family on both sides of the veil. After 11 years of battling cancer with a smile on his face, a sudden onset of pneumonia was too much for him. Harvey is a truly unique and special child of our Heavenly Father as anyone who has spent even five minutes with him could attest. Few people in this world can make absolutely everyone they meet feel as if they matter, but he did. Harvey is preceded in death by his parents, Carl LeRoy Wilhelm and Mabel Rogers Wilhelm, and survived by his loving wife of 43 years, Molly Gort, four children and their spouses: Roy and Beva Wilhelm, Laryssa and Bryan Waldron, Fiona and Brett Ostler, and Cameron and Holly Wilhelm, as well as 12 grandchildren. As stated by his sister, Harv leaves a huge void in all our lives because he was larger than life. He was technicolor in a black and white world. A viewing will be held on Thursday evening, November 29, 2012, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the Social Hall (North End) of the LDS Church on 1200 N. 1200 W. in Salt Lake City. A second viewing will be held at 9:30 a.m. the next day in the same location, with the funeral to follow at 11:00 a.m. in the North Chapel.
