I miss your huge heart, jokes and songs. It was such a privilege to be one of your many friends. I will always treasure your friendship and love and miss your spirit every day.
Harv worked for me as a controller in the Command Center at RAF Upper Heyford in the late 70's. He was one of the best. Give him a project and forget about it. He got it done. I will miss him on facebook. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and all his close friends.
Harv...he shared so much over the years. Met online because I was fromNeah Bay...generous with his music...Olivia...I feel like I watched you grow up.....he sent many pics of your accomplishments.....Julie & Heather......he so loved you. Tammie...you made him so happy.....to his mother.....he adored you and shared how you worked in th e kitchen at the hall. I will miss my friend.my thoughts and prayers ae with you all.
Though I never met Harv, except through fb, he surely did love the Makah People and the Makah Land..his videos were spectacular, his comments to many have been missed. we loved Harv and we miss him. Lila M. Parton, Neah Bay, WA
Although I can't be there, as I am in California, Harvey was a great friend of over 30 years, was in my wedding and a true joy to be around. We recently connected again after several years and shared old times, something Harvey loved. He was a man who loved his family and loved life. I will miss him. My sympathy to Tammie, Dee Heather Julie , Harvey;s Mom siblings and grandchildren. Hold him in your heart forever. Hugs
Went to school with Harv and always had a great respect for him and how he handled is life. RIP
To the family of Harv. My heart is very sad to lose such a good friend like Harv. I enjoyed him in school and working with him at Boeing. He was definitely 1 in a million!! Loved by all and hated by none!!! Every time I hear the song "It's a Beautiful Day" I will think of him. Love and miss you Harv!!!!!!!!!!!
Ah Skipper, my old neighbor growing up in South Everett. Always a nice guy. His family was fun too. I remember his Dad would demand a "trick" on halloween from anyone asking 'Trick or Treat". Reading these entries, I am not surprised at the number and nature. He was a good guy.
Love and peace,
I am so glad that you informed us all about Harvey's life. I am so glad that it was full of love and family. He was my date to the Sadie Hawkins dance at Cascade High and we were a "thing" for a while. So sorry to have lost track of him as he was one of the kindest, most caring person I ever associated with.
My condolences to Harv's friends and family. He died too suddenly and too young. If you know Harv, you know how enormously he loved his family, how deeply he loved his country and how much he loved his friends. I don't know Harv very well, but these things I learned very soon after re-connecting with him on FB after nearly 40 years. My heart goes out to each of his loved ones.
Love you Harvy, may you rest in peace.
Your light will shine forever in our hearts! <3
Words cannot express how much this man meant to me and many others who were fortunate enough to have him in their life. He was one in a million and I will miss him beyond crazy! Whenever life became a struggle for me... he was right there rallying for me and helping me to get through it.... even if all he could do was post an inspirational song or funny cartoon on my Facebook wall (some had to be sent in PM mode if you know what I mean - lol). But each time, he would go that extra mile and really make a difference. Losing Harv was like losing a dad for me. My heart will always ache where he touched it. Love you forever, Harv Pace!! Thank you for everything. ?
I met Harvey at Olivia Park School in south Everett in 1959. The silly thing I remember was him walking up to me and saying my name is Harvey too on the first day of school. In our adult life our paths crossed again at Boeing and I always enjoyed reminiscing with him. Rest in peace Harvey.

Harv. I hope you knew how loved you were. You left us too soon. I will always remember walking thru the cemetery in Kansas for you. You were so appreciative and it was fun for us. You will always be in my heart Harv.
It is my pleasure to be friend's with Harv for fifty two years. We met in the seventh grade in Mukilteo School District, and have been friends ever since. It saddens my heart that he has passed so soon in life. He will be deeply missed by my wife Shelly and I and all of our friends. Rest in peace my friend.

You were a great and loving man and I am so glad to have met you .
I'm sure going to miss you Harvey. You were one of a kind. I loved rocking out with you on the way to softball, watching concerts on TV, staying at your house when my folks went out of town and listening to all your awesome stories. Heather was my very first friend when I moved to Washington. It was great being able to grow up with your family. I know you're now up with the angels looking down on us all.
Skip was funny, smart and compassionate! He had a good heart and was kind. We miss him. We always looked forward to our 'play dates' as kids.
Harvey was a good friend during our Jr. High School Days at Olympic View in Mukilteo. It was Harvey who, late as usual to afternoon Roll Room burst in and said "Somebody just Shot the President." I moved away to attend High School in Tacoma and hadn't seen Harvey since. Though saddened to learn of his Death I am so happy to learn he led such a wonderful Life. RIP my friend and you left a great Legacy.

To the Pace and extended FB family.
Harv is a part of my child and adult memories that can never be erased by his absence.
I and many others will miss his presence but we all know he is watching over us.

Harv, facebook will not be the same without you. Enjoyed all the music, beautiful pictures and updates that you shared. My deepest condolences to your family and other friends. Your memory will be forever in our hearts dear friend.
We first met on 747 expedite where we got to be buds with a great group of people. I left the company in 99, I found out you left a bit later. Then we made contact again online and found out we had much more in common, both born in 49 both went to Fairmont Elementary, your dad worked at Pain Field AFB my Mom worked there also. We both went to local High Schools and both served our country. Then there was our mutual love of music and sharing the oldies we grew up with. A salute to a friend missed, see you on the other side.
Harv, you are very missed, the world has lost a great friend.
I can't believe you're gone. I've known you my whole life. You'll always be my Uncle Harv :)
Rest in Paradise! You are truly missed & will be forever cherished! Carlie & I both appreciate you & all that you've done! Our hearts & minds are open so visit when you can!! We love you! I'm always here for you Jules!! God bless you & your family!!!
Harv!!! You left entirely too soon! Your service, your spunk for life & your humor will be missed beyond belief.
May your Rest In Peace until we meet again!
Harv you were a great friend. I know it is unlikely that you will read this, but I want anybody who does read it to know, you were special.
Harv, You will truly be missed. I enjoyed working with you all the years at Boeing and after you retired I enjoyed you as my facebook friend. My heart goes out to the family. Colleen Eke. Rest well my friend
