Harvey O. Meckley, 72, of Buffalo Township, passed away Saturday, Jan. 5, 2019, peacefully at his home after a hard-fought battle with the effects of his exposure to Agent Orange. Harvey was born in Natrona Heights on Aug. 2, 1946, a son of the late Zelda M. (Thalman) and Paul D. Meckley Sr. Harvey was a 1965 graduate of Tarentum High School. After graduation, Harvey was drafted into the Army and was a combat veteran of the 66th Military Intelligence Brigade in Vietnam. After his honorable discharge from the Army, Harvey came home and took a job with Allegheny Ludlum Steel Corp. in West Leechburg, eventually retiring in 2003. He was a member of Center United Methodist Church in Fawn Township. Harvey enjoyed fishing, hunting, camping, hanging out with his friends and spending as much time as possible with his granddaughters. Harvey is survived by his daughter and son-in-law, Vicki and Ed Selker; his three granddaughters, Jenna, Sydney and Reese Selker; his brother, Paul D. Meckley Jr., of Fawn Township; and his two sisters, Daisy Lipus, of Natrona Heights, and Alice Dunlap, of Nebraska. Harvey was preceded in death by his daughter, Jennifer S.
