Dr. Wesley G. Harline 1921 ~ 2009 Dr. Wesley G. Harline, 88, who died on August 19, 2009, was born September 1, 1921 in Salt Lake City, Utah of goodly parents, one of five sons and two daughters of Oscar J. Harline and Lorena LeCheminant Harline. He graduated from Granite High School in 1938 and was awarded a scholarship to the University of Utah in English and Journalism. He later transferred to the field of pre-medicine and attended the University of Utah Medical School. In 1943, he transferred to Temple University in Philadelphia, where in 1945 he graduated in the upper 10 percent of his class. Dr. Harline interned at King's County Hospital in New York City. During World War II, he was inducted into the U.S. Army Air Force as a Captain and spent four months at McCormick General Hospital in Pasadena, California, an orthopedic and plastic surgery hospital for injured armed-services veterans. He was transferred to the Army Officers School at Fort Sam Houston, Texas, and later to the Army Hospital at Boling Field in Washington, D.C. Following nine month's service he was transferred to the Air Force Hospital at Rapid City, South Dakota, a B29 base, where he was Chief of Surgery. After discharge from the Air Force, he served a three-and one-half-year residency in surgery through the auspices of the University of Utah Medical School. He was accepted for a two-year plastic surgery residency at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. He married Rose Catherine (Candy) Candleana in 1947, a graduate of King's County Hospital School of Nursing.

Dr. Wesley Harline had a wide range of referrals in the general surgical field and was highly respected as a competent surgeon. Hospital personnel enjoyed scrubbing with him because of his expertise, and floor nurses enjoyed caring for his patients because so few had complications.

The last 25 years of his practice were devoted to cosmetic surgery; his patients came from all over the nation and abroad. He was in the forefront of the developing field of cosmetic surgery, traveling to conferences and seminars several times a year to stay current in his specialty, and participating as a panel expert. He had his own cosmetic surgical center with operating rooms and accommodations and a caring medical staff for post-op care of his patients.
