Last Of 11 Wilhelm Brothers Dies

Harold Wilhelm loved to play practical jokes - and he had plenty of company doing it growing up. Wilhelm, among 11 brothers with a household Post Falls name, died at 89 of natural causes in Spokane on Monday. He was the last surviving brother. "This was a dynasty," said David Wilhelm, Harold's son. "This was an era. It's been special being a part of it. If one uncle couldn't do something for you, another one could." The brothers moved to this area from North Dakota with their parents Mike and Monica Wilhelm in the 1930s/Brian Walker, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
