As they danced, gazing into each other's eyes, hearts melting, Harvey knelt on one knee and asked Angie to marry him. She told him she would if he would get up. That was the beginning of a new and wonderful relationship bonding as one. They enjoyed doing everything together. They were soon married. Angie said Harvey was a REDNECK and everything he did was REDNECK. They married at an RV Park in Big Spring, Texas. They both rode in on separate Harley's. They had a mud-hole wrestling match ending the affair with Angie and the new mother-in-law, Beverly McKinney, having a cake fight. Soon they were blessed with a family. Harvey was a devoted husband, father, son, and brother. His brother Steven, who was also injured during the accident shared that, "without his brother, he would never have lived life." Harvey was his dad's best friend. He will be greatly missed. At family gatherings Harvey and Angie would entertain everyone singing their favorite songs, "In Spite Of Ourselves", "Would you Lay With Me," and "Jackson." Harvey was the rock of his family. To know him, was to Love him. His love for his cousins was as deep as the love is for a brother and sister.
