It is with great personal sadness that I post this obituary. My friendship with Harvey was one of my longest, probably going back to kindergarden. We were close friends all through Minadeo and most of high school. Visited with him & Marcie a few years ago and talked with him several times last year, but had no clue he was ill. Wish I knew before his passing so I could have spoke with him again. Before he joined the Hondas, his 'gang' was Bobby Smolovitz, Mitchel Joseph, Eric Kotovsky, Steve Schwartz and myself. We got our first cars and motorcycles together and eventually drove off in different directions. Was very glad to see how happy his life was with Marcie and his daughters. They have great memories to carry through their lives.

I'm so sorry to hear this!

my condolences to his family and friends  I did not know him well, or at all frankly..but I do remember being " picked on" and Harvey always had my back. For this I am eternally grateful

I am very saddened to hear of Harvey's passing.  I have known Harvey since around 1965, when he came to Minadeo School.  We attended summer camp around that time, held various jobs from age 12 on, worked at the ballpark,and had cars and motorcycles at 16. 

Harvey had an infectious  enthusiasm for life, and ambitions from a young age to succeed.  Always a positive, upbeat person, I remember him as treating everyone well, regardless of their station in life.  Harvey was born to succeed, and was an inspiration to all who knew him.

Even when his Father,Bernard passed away in 2000, he greeted me at the Funeral Home like a celebrity, and with that same enthusiasm he always possessed.

I don't know if he ever attended and spoke at a  Career Day at his Daughters' schools, but if so I'm sure his influence lives on in many.

I was really looking forward to seeing Harvey at our 50th reunion. 

The world has lost a very ambitious and inspiring individual.
