Richard D. Harvey
93, of Indianapolis, departed this life January 1, 2013. He was born in Williams, Iowa on May 28, 1919 to James and Mary Belle (Gates) Harvey. Dick proudly served his country during World War II with the United States Army Air Corps. He flew Douglas C-47 Skytrains in the European Theatre, supplying the front lines and transporting refugees. His recollection of missions and hazardous duties, compelled him to write the book: 'The C-47, Flying Workhorse of WW II'. Upon his discharge, he returned to Galesburg, IL to own and operate Harvey Brothers Electric. Later, he worked for International Products and Manufacturing Co., retiring in 1984. Dick was an active and dedicated member of Epworth United Methodist Church. He was also a member of The American Legion. Dick is survived by his beloved wife of 73 years, Marjorie E. (Jewett) Harvey; sons, Ron (Jane) Harvey and Doug (Mary) Harvey; grandchildren, Shannon (Peter) Rogers, Sarah (Bill) Spencer, Ben (Tara) Harvey and Heather Harvey; great-grandchildren, Nick, Drew, Jack and Maryn Spencer and a host of nieces, nephews and good friends.
