Daniel "Danny" J. Harvey, 62, beloved husband of Monique Harvey, entered into eternal peace at his Manchester home on Friday, April 11, 2014.
The Guest Book is expired.
He was the son of Gerard Harvey of New Brunswick, Canada, and Theresa Harvey of South Windsor. Dan was born on Oct. 15, 1951, in Van Buren, Maine, and raised in New Brunswick. He and his family relocated to Manchester in 1967 where he was a member of the Manchester High School Class of 1970. Shortly after graduating, Dan would then learn the roofing and siding trade from Raymond LaBelle. Anxious to expand his talents, Dan opened Dan Harvey Home Remodeling in 1974. The highlight of his building career was his association with U&R Construction and owner Ludis Upenieks. From 1978 until Ludis built his last house in 2002, Dan was responsible for the roofing and siding of hundreds of U&R homes. His work ethic and pride in his craftsmanship was a hallmark of the quality of U&R homes. In his final years, Dan so enjoyed the company of the staff at Tankworks and Teddy's Oil and the Rainville Family. He will be dearly missed by those who had the pleasure of spending time with him.
In addition to his wife and parents, Dan is survived by his sister, Diane Harvey, and her husband, Dr. W. Barrios; his three children, Todd, and his wife, Roxanne Harvey, Travis Harvey, Tonya Harvey; and his grandchildren, Raiden and Bodhi Harvey. In addition he leaves his stepchildren, Yves, Jinny and fiancé, Eric Truchon, and Pascal; and grandchildren, Emma and Jeannick St. Pierre; along with many aunts, uncles, and cousins. He also leaves his cherished canine puppy, Nikko. He was predeceased by his closest and longtime German shepherd friend, Bear.
In celebration of Dan's life, Mass will be held at St. Bridget Church, 80 Main St., Manchester, on Wednesday, April 23, 2014, at 11 a.m.
Donations in Dan's memory may be made to St. Bridget School Scholarship Fund, 74 Main St. Manchester, CT 06040.
