Todd Harley

A memorial celebration for Todd Harley, a 49-year resident of Wilson, is scheduled for 5 p.m. Tuesday at the Old Wilson Schoolhouse Community Center.

Harley died of natural causes while walking on Old Pass Road on June 5. He was 72.

His family provided the following.

Raised and educated in Minneapolis, Todd came to Jackson in 1970 to work at St. John’s Hospital. He went on to work as a patroller for Jackson Hole Mountain Resort for 25 years, and also worked as a carpenter in the summer months. For the past several years he volunteered with the adaptive skier program.

Todd lived his dream, racing motorcycles, flying airplanes, shooting competitively, skiing, climbing and biking. He was the consummate host who entertained in his home often and well.

He is survived by sister Deborah (Tom) Healey; brother Steve (Deb) Harley; nieces and nephews; and many wonderful friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Bud and Bea Harley; and sister Lisa Harley.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Teton Adaptive Sports, P.O. Box 903, Teton Village, WY 83025. Condolences may be left at
