Not sure what to say?

no one who attended EHS will ever forget the awesome Mr Harvey. RIP

What a wonderful man he was. He was always watching out for the times you were down or feeling unsafe. He would pull the quarter out of the ear to make you smile. I have thought of him often over the years. So happy to know he lived a long life. Lynda

From the Magic shows to the stories of "Horatio" and a ready smile or hug when you needed it, I remember Harvey very fondly from my time in Eureka. I'll continue to celebrate his life each time I attend a theater performance or smell pipe smoke wafting in the air. Blessings to his family.

I got to know Harvey when I was in High School and then when I started working at the High School in '78.
He was always helpful and fun. RIP.

GREAT MAN LEARENED ALOT FROM HIM .I REPLACED HARVEY AT THE EHS AUDITOTIUM AS STAGE TECH.. THANKS HARVEY FOR THE MEMORIES
MY CONDOLENCES TO THE FAMILY,

He was loved and respected by so many students. He was also the first person to show me how a custom fit could succeed in an off the rack world. Will be missed!

I remember Harvey coming into my store often. He was a really nice guy. Harvey Jr and family, I am sorry for your loss.

I remember many performances of Harvey the Magician growing up in Eureka. RIP
