I will never forget Harvey as I began my career with Norwest/Wells Fargo as he was about to end his career with the bank. I had the opportunity to work with him for a couple of years before his retirement. Everyone liked Harvey and he had a ton of customers as I remember. So sorry to hear about his passing. A very kind and understanding man, who I liked alot. My deepest sympathy to you Donna and his children, especially Warren and Cheryl, who I had as customers at the bank. He will never be forgotten. Sincerely, Audrey Tobin

Donna and the Harger family, It has been a long time since we were all young and beginning our lives together. The pleasant memories are still very vivid in my memory. We had such a caring family. You and Patricia spent many shopping days together until we moved away in 1984. Pat missed all of her family but especially the closeness that you and she shared. I will share your sadness at the loss of Harvey and I will keep you in my prayers. Be assured that you can count on your family. Love from Sarge and Zada

Donna and family, We are so sorry to hear that Harvey passed away the other morning. He is in a wonderful place now without pain and suffering. He was a wonderful person and I was proud to have him as my uncle. He was also a great supportive friend for Bruce and myself and we will miss him dearly. His bright smiley face and spirit will live forever in our hearts. Our memories of him always make us smile. He will be greatly missed and we know how hard this is for your entire family. We will keep all of you in our prayers and offer you our deepest sympathy.
