Obituary


Harlem Eugene "Willie" Wilson
Nov. 17, 1934 - Jan. 10, 2011

Our beloved dad, brother, grandpa and friend passed away at his home in Arco, ID.
He leaves behind his loving family, sister, Dorothy Whitcraft (Earl); son, Rory (Terri); daughter, Cyndee Sprague (Joe); son, Roger; granddaughter, Holly Zimmerman (Dan); three stepchildren, Lisa, Becky and Tim; wife, Sandy; first wife, Patricia; his beloved dog, Ally; and countless family members and friends.
Dad was an electrician and proud member of the IBEW union for most of his life. He was a brilliant electrician and a good friend to everyone he worked with through his long career.
He made several good and dear friends after retirement. They will truly miss their companion and coffee buddy.
Although Dad was soft-spoken, he had a wonderful sense of humor and just loved to play pranks and tease his family and friends. Dad loved music and played many instruments; he was a great singer and a wonderful dancer.
He loved cars, motorcycles... anything with cool gadgets, all kinds of sports - he was a really good bowler and was up for trying anything fun!
Dad had a smile and laugh that were infectuous. He was as handsome as he was talented, and a true gentleman.
The world has lost a great man and we will treasure every memory and thought of him forever.
He was preceded in death by his beloved parents, Myron "Bub" and Edna Wilson; his daughter, Lorelei ("Lory"); daughter-in-law, Roberta; and long-time friend, Blaine Cragun.
Dad always made his family proud and was loved by all who knew him.

Your youthfulness, your laugh, your love will be in our hearts forever.
We love and miss you, Dad.

A celebration of his life will be held this summer.
