PORT CLINTON — Friends and family will come together Saturday to pay their respects to 14-year-old Harley Dilly.

A visitation will be held at the Gerner-Wolf-Walker Funeral Home and Crematory, 216 Washington Street, Port Clinton from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

According to Harley's obituary, he enjoyed playing sports, video games and making YouTube videos. Harley was a kind-hearted soul who brought smiles to those people he met. Oftentimes on walks, Harley would drop pennies, called pennies from heaven, that other people would find. He is survived by his parents, Marcus and Heather Dilly, and his sister and brother.

A private funeral service will be held for the family at a later date.

Harley went missing on Dec. 20, 2019. His disappearance prompted a nation-wide search.

On Jan. 14, Harley was found just a few hundred feet from his home inside an unoccupied house.
