bullet Charles Edward LEVERICH (photo) was born on 25 Oct 1871 in Shell Rock, Butler Co., Iowa. He was a General Superintendent of the Grand Junction Narrow Gauge Railroad after 1916 in Grand Junction, Colorado. He was a General Superintendent of the Great Northern Railroad before 1917 in Great Falls, Cascade Co., Montana. He died on 21 Mar 1944 in Portland, Multnomah Co., Oregon. Nothing is known about Charles' early life. His father, James Perry, was also born in Iowa and served in the Civil War on the Union side. His father was wounded in the war and was held as a prisoner of war in Louisiana. His mother, Robey Preston, was from Wisconsin.

He married Mary Louise Quast in 1896, probably in Melrose, Minnesota. They had 2 children, James Perry, born in 1897, and Bryan Preston, born in 1904.

Charles was a very successful and important railroad man. In 1893, the Great Northern Railroad linked St. Paul to Seattle, Wash., with 1,816 miles of track. Around World War I, he was General Superintendent of the Great Northern, which played an important role in shipping supplies during the war.

There were serious problems in Charles and Mary’s marriage relationship. They divorced around 1916 when James was 18 and Bryan was 11. At the time, divorce was almost unheard of. Mary was said to have taken young Bryan with her down to meet with the railroad officials to plead her case for more financial support from her ex-husband. Perhaps because of such pressures and harassment, Charles arranged to be transferred to Grand Junction, Colorado where he was put in charge of the narrow gauge railroad which ran between Grand Junction and the mining towns of the Colorado Rockies.

He later remarried a lady named Winky. They were very happy together and settled in the Portland, Oregon, area. Charles died in Portland at the age of 72 in 1944.

bullet James Perry LEVERICH Sr. (photo) was born on 11 Oct 1897 in Melrose, Stearns Co., Minnesota. He died on 11 Jul 1962 in Salt Lake City, Salt Lake Co., Utah. He resided at 264 Wilson Ave. 1924 to 1962 in Salt Lake City, Salt Lake Co., Utah. He was a Switchman for Denver & Rio Grande Railroad.
Jim was the oldest son of a railroad man. His father was General Superintendent of the Great Northern Railroad which linked the northern states.

When Jim was younger, he enjoyed painting and was very talented. Unfortunately, he developed a nervous disorder called chorea, or Saint Vitus’ Dance, and had to give it up.

In 1914, when Jim was 16, his family was then living in Great Falls, Montana. The young people in town would go to Griffith Park in Great Falls to dance and socialize. That’s where he met Hylda, who was the same age as Jim. They dated until age 20, when they ran away to Fort Benton, Montana, to get married in June of 1918. At the time, 20 was too young in Great Falls to get married without parental consent.

Jim’s mother, Mary Louise, objected strongly at first. She felt that Hylda wasn’t accomplished, as she didn’t know how to play the piano. As Hylda pointed out later, neither was Mary Louise able to play. Mary Louise wanted to have the marriage annulled until she found out that Hylda was already pregnant with her first child Marie.

Jim’s parents had divorced in about 1916, a couple of years prior to Jim and Hylda’s marriage. As a result, Jim’s dad had arranged to have himself transferred to Grand Junction, Colorado, where he was made superintendent of the narrow gauge railroad that ran to and from the nearby mining towns.

As things were also tense between Jim’s new bride and his mother, Jim arranged for a job with the narrow gauge railroad through his dad in Grand Junction. The family moved to Grand Junction in 1919, which now included Marie, their newborn daughter. This job didn’t last long, as the work was a desk job, and Jim couldn’t stand being cooped up indoors. After a short time in Grand Junction, he took a job in 1920 with the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad in Salt Lake City as a switchman, and again moved his family, which now included two children.

They bought their first home in a new housing tract development on 264 Wilson Avenue in Salt Lake City in 1924. The area at the time was mostly farmland being converted to residential. South of 21st South, across a large canal which ran down the street, the land was essentially all farmland.

Jim’s job with the D&RG was that of a switchman. He worked at the Roper Yards, located on about 21st South and 3rd West. As the name implies, his job was to redirect the trains by switching them from track to track. This was all done manually and involved being outdoors most of the time, which is what Jim preferred. Because of the moving cars and trains, the work was somewhat dangerous and Jim always had to remain alert. As the trains ran every day, it was a 7 day a week job. He would usually get off work every day at 4 p.m.

When the Great Depression came, Jim was one of the few people fortunate enough on the block to keep his job. He was involuntarily required to take four days off each month because of the Depression. These days off gave him an opportunity to get to know his family better, which had now grown to 5 children. The family was particularly fond of picnics, which they would take up Lamb’s Canyon.

Jim enjoyed making his own repairs on his Ford Model T and later his Model A. He subscribed to Popular Mechanics all his life and enjoyed tinkering of all sorts. Two of his three sons would also develop a strong interest in working with automobiles.

Jim loved to dance socially, and Hylda would occasionally have to hold him down when his footwork would become too fancy for her to keep up.

As was the custom with many folks during Prohibition, Jim would make his own beer and hard liquor. He was always careful to wait until the beer was just right before imbibing. The equipment for making brandy and whiskey was more involved, and included copper tubing running through a potato, and other mysterious and complicated apparatus. To avoid prying eyes, he would always draw the blinds before proceeding.

Jim also liked to buy his own tobacco and roll his own cigarettes. He had a special machine that he purchased for accomplishing this task. He had smoked from a very early age, which led to poor health in his later years. The air at the time in those early years in Salt Lake was also very bad because of all of the coal fired furnaces and winter temperature inversions. Jim later developed emphysema. All of these factors likely contributed to Jim’s early death in 1962 at the relatively young age of 64.

Jim didn't believe much in genealogy. He thought that if you looked hard enough, sooner or later you would find a horse thief somewhere..

He was a hard working, steady, and caring family man, much loved by his wife and children.

Jim is our Grandfather. Parents: Charles Edward LEVERICH and Mary Louise QUAST.

He was married to Hylda Maria MONROE on 5 Jun 1918 in Fort Benton, Choteau Co., Montana. Children were: Marie Hylda LEVERICH, James Perry LEVERICH, Mildred Louise LEVERICH, Keith Edward LEVERICH, Kent Monroe LEVERICH.


bullet James Perry LEVERICH was born on 16 May 1920 in Salt Lake City, Salt Lake Co., Utah. He died on 4 Jan 1994 in Salt Lake City, Salt Lake Co., Utah. "GENTLEMAN JIM"

Jim Passed away on January 4, 1994 from complications due primarily to kidney failure but he had many other medical complications during his life. Jim would hold the Guiness World Book title for having an optimistic and positive attitude while going through life's challenges.

Born May 16, 1920 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Parents were James P and Hylda MonroeLeverich. Jim had two sisters, Marie (Bailey) and Mildred Eastep (deceased), and two brothers, Keith Leverich and Kent Leverich (deceased).

Jim, with his family, was raised in the Wilson Ave area. He joined the US Navy after Pearl Harbor. He served in the South Pacific until being wounded. Upon his return, he married Donna LaVon Hoxsie. Jim owned and operated independent service stations throughout the Salt Lake valley. He operated under the name of "Gentleman Jim." His best and longest location was on 1300 East and 2100 South. Jim left the service station business and opened a number of dry cleaners. Donna worked full time with Jim in these businesses. They retired in 1983.

Jim and Donna were able to winter in Tucson and summer in Salt Lake. During this 11 year retirement, Jim was on Kidney Dialysis. Jim requested that the family recognize the dedicated and professional care he received at the Veterans Hospital here in Salt Lake and in Tucson. In particular, Jim wanted to recognize the personnel in the Dialysis Department for their constant vigilant care and help over the years. These people gave Jim life two and three times a week. Thanks!
Jim is survived by his wife, Donna; four children and their spouses, Jean and Keith Crookston, Joe and Laura Leverich, John and Pat Leverich, James and Jan Leverich (London), 11 grandchildren, Kelley, Kerrie, Saundie, Matt, Erin, Karen, John Tyler, Brion, Trent, and Bethany.
