1931-2014

Roy Lewis Wilhelm, 82, of Elgin, died April 1 at his residence. 

A graveside service will be held at Summerville Cemetery at 2 p.m. Monday. Casual dress is requested.

Mr. Wilhelm was born Nov. 17, 1931, in Mitchell, S.D., to Clarence and Bernice (Marsden) Wilhelm. 

He eventually moved to Union County, where he attended La Grande High School.

Roy was in the Army National Guard. Retirement gave Roy plenty of time to enjoy life. Some of Roy’s hobbies included horses (he was a member of the Appaloosa Horse Club) and hunting. He particularly enjoyed spending time with his grandkids.

He is survived by his sons, Leo Wilhelm of Umatilla and Les Wilhelm (Ellen) of Summerville; sisters, Betty Wilhelm of Elgin and Shirley Flatebo of Florida; six grandchildren, six great-grandchildren and 23 nieces and nephews.

He is preceded in death by his wife, Evelyn Wilhelm; his brothers, Ray and Robert Wilhelm; and his parents, Clarence and Bernice Wilhelm.

Memorial contributions can be made to a charity of choice in care of Loveland Funeral Chapel, 1508 Fourth St., La Grande 97850.
