We are deeply saddened by the news of the death of our Pastor Emeritus, Rev. Harold Wylie.

Harold Arthur Wylie
July 30, 1930 - June 16, 2019

Rev. Harold Arthur Wylie passed away on June 16, 2019.

Harold was born July 30, 1930 to Dr. Harry and Florence Wylie, Christian missionaries stationed in the Punjab area of India. He had 3 sisters, Quessie, Hildreth, and Barbara.

Upon returning to the United States Harold attended junior high and high school in Phoenix, AZ. Through a shared love of music he met his wife, Hazel Haines at Westminster College, Salt Lake City, UT. They were married for 67 years and Hazel died in June, 2018.

After college Harold went to San Francisco Theological Seminary and was ordained in the Presbyterian Church. Harold and Hazel spent most of their life in small community missions in the western United States, making good friends everywhere they lived. Harold shared his love of God, natural science, adventure, and music with all those around him. He played piano and guitar well; he loved to run, bike, hike, camp and eat ice cream and pie with his family.

He is survived by his five children: Allan, Bruce, Craig, Darlene, Elizabeth; fifteen grandchildren and many great grandchildren.

Harold was a founder of the Institute For Continued Learning and his family suggests memorials be sent to the ICL, 658 E 200 S, St George UT 84770. ICL.dixie.edu.
