Harold Conlee passed away Sunday, August 31, 2014, in Alpine,
UT, at the age of 38. He was born 19 May 1976 in Creve Coeur,
Missouri, to parents Robert K. and Marianne Colt Conlee.
He loved sports and was an all-state baseball player for
Mountain View High School. He played baseball for one year
at Utah Valley State College before serving a mission for
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Roseville,
California. While on his mission he met Sister Alanna Leigh
Merrill. Following their missions and courtship the two
were married in the Mount Timpanogos Temple, American Fork,
Utah, on August 23, 1997. They are the parents of five children.
John was a member of the LDS Church who truly loved his
Heavenly Father. He served faithfully in many callings including
High Councilor and as Bishop of the Helena 2nd Ward of the
Helena Montana Stake. His favorite callings were home teacher
and member missionary. John graduated from Brigham Young
University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications
and immediately accepted employment with Eli Lilly Pharmaceuticals
for whom he worked until his untimely passing. In the later
years of his life he dealt with multiple health issues that
eventually led to his death. Back in the presence of his
Heavenly Father he can finally find the complete peace he
yearned for in his earthly experience.
He is survived by his wife Alanna, and their five children
Camryn, Kadyn, Abby, John Christian and Ella. He was preceded
in death by his mother and is also survived by his father
and five siblings, Robert (Stephanie), Steven (Gisele),
Julie (Todd) Anderson, James and David (Melissa) as well
as aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.
