Harvey graduated from Granite Falls High School in 1948. He played in the 1947 State Basketball Tournament. He then attended Augustana College in Sioux Falls, SD. He was a proud U.S. Navy Korean War Veteran. Being an avid sports fan, he supported his children and grandchildren’s athletic endeavors. A highlight every fall was the Army/Navy football game. Harvey felt very lucky to retire at his lake home, which became a gathering place for his friends and family. Harvey’s strength, humor, and never quit attitude will be with all who knew him forever. His greatest joy was his family. "NAME THAT COTTON PICKIN TUNE."
