Harvey was a great husband and father, he was deeply loved by all his family and we will really miss him! A few months after we were married we moved Jamestown, North Dakota, where Harvey worked two years in 1-W service at the state hospital for our government. After completing his service, we lived and worked on several different farms in ND. In 1972, we moved to Sarasota, FL, where Harvey bought a lawn service which he kept for over 30 years. His customers loved him and he had a good relationship with all of them. Harvey has been fighting cancer since 2017; he now has a new home in heaven and is cancer free! God is good! ~Shirley
