Harold Painter Culley, Sr., 89, passed away peacefully surrounded by his loved ones on Wednesday, April 10, joining his eternal companion. He was born August 14, 1923 in Los Angeles, California to Willard and Hazel Culley. Part of America's greatest generation, Harold served with the Army Air Corps in the Pacific Theater during World War II and deeply loved his country. He married Betty Joy Cooper on March 22, 1945.
Harold represented the best that is in all of us. He taught his kids the value of hard work and self reliance. He was an involved member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Everyone knew Harold - creating laughter and a sense of belonging. Harold was always searching for the just -right joke…where Harold was, was a good time. His world revolved around his children and grandchildren, always looking for the next get-together. His effervescence and unbounded optimism was infectious and endearing. There needs to be more Harold Culleys in the world, for surely it would then be a much better place.
Survived by his 5 children, Harold Jr., of Las Vegas,NV, David (Robin) of Phoenix, AZ, twins, Greg of Salt Lake City and Gary (Lynn) of Roy and Robyn (Don) Parker of Salt Lake City; 11 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren.
The family would like to thank Jolene and everyone at Pine Mountain Hospice, and Sandy Health & Rehab for the loving care they gave to dad and our family.
