Harvey proudly served in the United States Army stationed in Fort Knox Kentucky. Upon his discharge, He spent the next 35 years at Rohm and Haas and eventually retired as machine shop supervisor.

He was fortunate to own a home in Palm Coast FL, where he and Joan spent many winters. There they created many fond memories for their children and grandchildren when they came to visit.

Harvey was a passionate Philadelphia Sports Fan. He never missed an Eagles or Phillies game. One of his favorite things to do was to sit on his patio on a warm summer night listening to the Phillies and Harry K.

Harvey will be honored by his family in a private memorial service.

I never met Harvey myself, but my father, Pat Panuccio was very close friends with Harvey's father, his name was Harvey also. I too knew his father very well. Through him we purchased property in Sullivan County near Mr. Crowthers place in 1966. May he Rest in Peace!!
