May 24, 1939 - February 6, 2015
Mr. Harley Wall of Nanton, Alberta passed away at the Foothills Medical Centre in Calgary at the age of 75 years. Harley is survived by his loving wife Laverne; son Hal Wall and daughter Wonda (Keith) Michaud; grandchildren Logan, Jessica; great-grandchildren Brayden, Taya and Tyler; siblings Esther (Adam) Klischuk, Fred Wall and Marion Chernenkoff. Harley was predeceased by his parents Marie and Ben Wall; sisters Gladys, Elaine; brothers Jim, Terry and Melvin. Harley was born in Borden, Sask but at 9 months of age, the family moved north to Big River where they had a homestead on the edge of a small lake. Harley and his siblings attended a small one room school miles away. Life was not easy for many people in those days, but the Wall family was very self sufficient. Everyone in the family helped out by working long hours in the garden, picking berries and even working in their dads small sawmill. They all learned valuable lessons that would be important throughout their lives. Harley spent a few years working at different jobs in all 4 of the western provinces before settling in Edmonton. While there, he and Laverne were married in 1964 and welcomed their 2 children into their lives. They have just celebrated their 50th anniversary! In 1972 they moved to Calgary where Harley worked for Lafarge Canada as loader operator for 32 years. Since his retirement in 2004 Harley and Laverne have traveled frequently throughout the US and have spent their summers camping 'back home ', just across the lake from the old homestead. That truly was his favorite place on earth! When their family expanded to include grandchildren and great grandchildren, Harley had an even brighter sparkle in his blue eyes! They made wonderful memories with their family gatherings and camping together. Harley was known to all as a kind and gentle man. He touched our hearts with his big smile and his generous hugs. He was loved and will be missed by so many. A Celebration of Harley’s Life was held on Friday, February 13 at 2:00 p.m. at the Highwood Golf & Country Club in High River.
