Wayne Clare Harvey | Dec. 27, 1918 – Dec. 1, 2009

My wife’s grandfather passed away this morning. Grandpa Harvey would have celebrated his 91st birthday later this month. We are all blessed to have been a part of his long and active life.

He always greeted us with a big smile! I will miss the times we spent talking about the Harvey and Heim family histories. Our talks were always filled with stories that made those histories really come to life.
