Beloved father, grandfather and great-grandfather Harvey Francis Belenski peacefully passed away on Dec. 13, 2017, at the age of 85.
Harvey was born in Gilmanton Township, Minn., on Feb. 2, 1932, the 10th child of Michael Belenski and Anna (Banke) Belenski.
Harvey enlisted in the U.S Army on April 29, 1949, serving until October 1952. After separation from the Army, Harvey traveled from Washington to Alaska with his brother, George, in search of work.
On July 8, 1961, Harvey married Alma "Jean" Belenski, his loving wife of 54 years. Jean and sons joined Harvey in Anchorage, Alaska, in 1962. The family moved back and forth between Washington and Alaska while Harvey worked road construction, eventually settling and making Anchorage their permanent home. Harvey was a member of the Local 302 Operators Union and worked in road construction until his retirement.
Harvey enjoyed car auctions where he would find his next big project, having coffee or a meal with friends and visiting the Anchorage Senior Center. Although our hearts are broken, we take solace in knowing he will be spending this Christmas with his beloved Jean.
Harvey is preceded in death by his loving wife, Jean; his parents, Michael and Anna. Harvey is lovingly remembered by his sons, Ronald (Donna) of Anchorage, Donald (Sherri) of Sutro Springs, Nev., and William (Judy) of Olympia, Wash.; grandchildren, Adrie Ann (William), Christine (Brian) and Tiffany (Isaac) of Anchorage, and Stacie of Tumwater, Wash.; and 11 great-grandchildren.
Service will be held at 2:30 p.m. on Dec. 27, 2017, at Witzleben Funeral Home, 1707 South Bragaw Street in Anchorage, with interment in the spring at Fort Richardson National Cemetery.
