Robert Earl Harvey, Jr.
1928 – 2020
Robert Earl Harvey, Jr. as he would have said “I Graduated Today” on December 4, 2020, age 91, from complications due to Covid-19, surrounded by family, both in person and via technology.
He was born in Ajo, Arizona on December 28, 1928. He was the eldest son of Robert Earl Harvey, Sr., and Nellie Hastings.
He married Donna Louise Aamodt on July 19, 1950 in the Salt Lake Temple. Six weeks after Robert and Donna were married Robert filled his mission call which he received before they were married to the Australia Mission from 1950 to 1952. For many years Bob was self-employed and loved working with computers, repairing equipment and technology. Bob worked hard all his life, he knew the value of work and a job well done, which he instilled in all his children. He also served a mission at the Bishop’s Storehouse in Magna, Utah.
They have 5 children, Lorraine (Michael) Steckler, Vaughn (Connie) Harvey, Leonard (Georgeann) Harvey, Kathleen Harvey, and Diane (Joseph) Coles. They had 14 Grandchildren, and 24 Great-Grandchildren.
Bob’s greatest blessings were his family. He loved spending time with them and telling stories, especially about a yellow dress, watermelons, and bats. He enjoyed gardening, and he really loved his orchids.
Bob also loved serving his neighbors, he was blessed to be surrounded by so many great friends and loving people, who helped him, and he returned the help in so many ways.
Preceded in death by his wife, parents, brothers Dwayne and Gerald. Survived by his brothers Barry (Leesa) Harvey, Dale (Diane) Harvey, and sister-in-law LaVerne Harvey.
We would like to offer our greatest appreciation to all those at St. Joseph Villa who took such great care of Dad.
