Remembrances

Most people who read this know Harvey Decker loved his daughter, music, and good coversation. He had an easy smile and a focus on others. Much of his focus was on his daughter who tragically passed away. Harvey’s love of music spanned his life with a particular love of 80’s music & the Beatles. Harvey was happy to talk to everyone and wished he could do more to help those in need. His path in life was not easy. Harvey endured heart breaking loss and physical illness that many would find unbearable and yet, the end came to fast. Thank you for being a part of my life. I’m glad I could be part of yours.  I’ll miss you. With love and respect, goodbye Harvey.
