Harvey loved the Lord and was saved April 21, 1961 at Blue Ridge Church of God Holiness. He was baptized at the bridge below the church when the creek was up. When they tipped his head back his feet came out from under him and could hardly get back up. He really enjoyed attending church and rarely missed a service. Harvey was not only known for being a wonderful husband, loving father and always a gentleman that never met a stranger, he was also known for his watermelon patches, raising cattle and bailing hay.
