Obituary


BRATLIE,
Harold Roy

Passed away peacefully at home Friday, May 20, 2011.
He was born June 23, 1931 in Faith, South Dakota to Olaf and Dorothy Bratlie. He was raised in the Idaho Panhandle and attended schools at Hayden Lake and Coeur d'Alene.
Harold married his
childhood sweetheart,
Norma Hyde, in August 1950 and proceeded to master his trade in cement finishing. Together they "followed the work" - moving every time a new job would become available. He finally settled in the Spokane Valley and with his long time friend, Vaughn Murphy, started B&M Cement Finishing, Inc. He worked as a respected cement finisher for over 40 years throughout the Inland Empire.
Harold was an avid outdoorsman and enjoyed hunting, fishing, golfing and gardening.
He is preceded in death by his wife of 59 years, Norma. He leaves behind two daughters; Patti Guy of Deer Park, WA, and Penni Rose (John) of Otis Orchards, WA; his four granddaughters, Angela Santorsola (Matt) of Seattle, WA, Melissa Guy (Angela) of Tempe, AZ, Jill Plumb (Jimmie) of Spokane Valley, WA and Julie Rose of Liberty Lake, WA; his three great-granddaughters, Carli and Haily and Jolie, and his great-grandson Jase; two brothers Norman Bratlie of Coeur d' Alene, ID and Kenneth Bratlie (Betty) of Portland, OR and their families.
A memorial service will be held at 3:00 PM, Friday, June 3, 2011 at the Spokane Valley Wesleyan Church, 16607 E. Broadway, Spokane Valley, followed by a gathering for food and memories at the church.
