Dear Carolyn and Family, It is with a heavy heart that I write this note. Harvey was a great classmate, patriate , and I judge a wonderful family man. I know you have very fond memories of all the places you have been and enjoyed together. During high school we did not travel in the same circles, but I admired him for his love of life and enthusiasm for every adventure he took on. It was at the 40th and 50th reunions that we made a better connection based on our military background and pride of service. It has been a pleasure to know and admire him for all these years. May God be with you and your family in this time of sorrow. I know Harvey is looking down on you knowing you are cared for and comforted by the many friends and loved ones you both have made over the years. Sincerely, Mark Maxwell, Class of 59 Lt. Col USAF (Retired)

It was an honor serving 15 years with Harvey in the Rangers. He was a very even keel man and we all respecter him a lot.

I was a lucky man to be sworn in as a Mounted Ranger by Captain Brewer. I will miss his friendship dearly. Once a ranger, always a ranger.
