He was the youngest of three children. Harvey attended and graduated from Garfield High School in Garfield, Washington. After graduation, he immediately joined the U.S. Navy during WWII at the age of 17. When he was discharged he moved back to Garfield met and married M. LaVonne Mitchell in 1946.

Virginia passed away in 1998. Harvey retired to Kennewick and married Gloria Bouchey of Kennewick on February 26, 2005. Together, they had a wonderful albeit brief marriage. Alzheimer’s disease regrettably shortened their time together. Harvey enjoyed working with his hands, he could and did build a house and several garages and remolded interiors of many homes and the flower shop and did it with perfection. He enjoyed snow- mobiling, especially at Yellowstone Park and Priest Lake, taking trips to Hawaii, and roaming around in his motor home. Harvey liked to work, much like his father, Alfred.
