Funeral services for Harvey were held on Sunday, Jan. 3, 2010, at Phillip Funeral Home in West Bend.

On behalf of my mother, Berangere "Brigitte," and my sister, Christine, I would like to thank all the staff at St. Joseph’s Hospital in West Bend for the care and compassion that was given to my father. Whether direct or indirect, your daily job duties did not go unnoticed. We noticed and really appreciated your routine and mundane work activities and job duties that you completed so well. From the janitor removing the trash to the doctor giving the examination, your efforts helped with the quality and comfort that my dad had in his final hour. My father worked at this hospital for 22 years and appreciated all the fellow employees he worked with throughout the years. Long ago, he once told me, as he smiled, that the only way he was going to leave here is if he was lead away on a team of white horses. I believe he was granted this request. Thank you to the employees of St. Joseph’s Hospital and the Kathy Hospice.
