In l962 Harvey enlisted in the United States Navy and received an honorable discharge in 1966. He worked in Eastern Oregon as a feller buncher operator for over 30 years.
Harvey was one of a kind, a friend to all and a simple man who enjoyed hunting in the fall, fishing, trips to the coast to catch Tuna, being outdoors, and solving the world’s problems with his buddies under the “Northern Lights”. His door was always open. He kept a bowl of candy stocked on the table and the neighborhood kids would stop by to say “Hi Uncle Harvey” and pick their “three” pieces.
He was preceded in death by his parents; brothers LeRoy, Marvin and Linden.
Harvey is survived by his daughters Carolyn De Ford, Christina Kinsey, Pamela Kinsey, numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren.
