My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. Harvey worked with my Second Graders and their experience with him was wonderful.

I had the pleasure of having Harvey as a student at Granby High and a remember Harvey as a very friendly and helpful person. After he went to work at Park & Rec we had this long standing joke that he was going to teach me to swim. Harvey was always the same kind,friendly and loving. I know he is missed. I send my prayers to his family and friends and ask that we honor him by keeping him always near in our hearts.

I was shocked to learn of Harvey’s passing. he was my lifeguard instructor many years ago and a co-worker after I was certified. He always had a way of making everyone laugh and making time go by and made going to work enjoyable. He will be missed and my prayers go out to his family.

i had the pleasure of watching Harvey grow up . He was a funny, sweet , incredibly kind boy , and he grew to be a wonderful man . A good & loyal friend , Harvey never met a stranger. From the bus stop to the beach , he sought out people to serve . From the older women who lived in his apartment complex as a child to his friends’ parents ,growing up , Harvey didn’t care how old or sick or sad or scared you were , his love and joy , and the love & joy he brought others , was unwavering . He left this world way too soon . I’ll never forget him -he lives in a lot of people’s hearts . Deb breede

I worked for Harvey in 1992 at Oceanview Beach. Though its been 23 years, I remember Harvey as kind and funny and easy going. He was a great swim coach, and his leadership lent confidence to all who worked with him. I am saddened by his passing. I can only imagine that he is greatly loved by many. My deepest sympathy to Harvey’s family, you will remain in my thoughts and prayers.

It is with a heavy heart that I just found out about Harvey’s passing. Harvey was one of the first lifeguards that taught my brother and I to swim, and he also provided me with my first lifeguarding job at a mere age of 15. I continued to try to keep in touch over the years as I also became a City employee. He always lit up a room and knew how to make people laugh. If you needed something he would do anything he could to help. Anyone that had the privilege of knowing Harvey, knew he was truly one of a kind. Harvey you will be missed! You may no longer be physically with us, but your presence will never go unnoticed. Rest in peace my friend. Sending prayers to your family, may you always be by their side.
