Harold Lloyd Merkley August 27th, 1935 - May 31st, 2023

Harold Lloyd Merkley, age 87, passed away peacefully the evening of May 31st, 2023. He was a devoted husband, loving father, doting grandfather, and a dear friend to many. Harold and his cleverness will be deeply missed and he will be fondly remembered as an unfaltering pillar for his family.

Born on August 27th, 1935 in Utah, Harold lived a life filled with adventure and purpose. His work as a bridge engineer took him across the western United States and even to distant countries, including Portugal and Venezuela. Harold's dedication to his profession not only allowed him to leave his mark on the world but also provided his family with the opportunity to explore different corners of the globe.

He and his wife, Kay Merkley, were married for 65 years and together they built a home with many memories. As a father to his daughters, Tracy and Susan, and a grandfather to his granddaughters, Roxy, Shelly, and Casey, Harold's love knew no bounds. He was their unwavering supporter, their source of wisdom, and their greatest fan. Harold took immense pride in their accomplishments and celebrated every milestone with overflowing joy and enthusiasm.

Beyond his professional and family life, Harold had a passion for classic cars and trucks. In his later years, he pursued his dream of owning these vehicles and even gained recognition at various car and truck shows. Harold's meticulous care and dedication to his collection earned him numerous awards, reflecting his commitment to excellence and his ability to find joy in the pursuit of his dreams.

Harold will be remembered as a kind-hearted individual with a sharp wit and a radiant smile. His warm presence lit up any room he entered, and his ability to make people feel valued and cherished was a testament to his exceptional character. Harold touched the lives of many and leaves behind a legacy of love, resilience, and dedication.

While no memorial service will be held, Harold's memory will live on in the hearts of those who knew him. His remarkable life will forever be cherished by his beloved wife, daughters, and granddaughters as well as a host of extended family and dear friends.

May he rest in eternal peace.

Burial will take place at the Jensen Cemetery.
