James E. “Harv” HarveyBeehiveJames E. “Harv” Harvey, 75 of West Mansfield, died early Tuesday morning, January 18, 2022 at The James.

He was born July 23, 1946 in Kenton to the late Harry Burl and Emily Dolores (Benedict) Harvey.

On June 8, 1968 he married the former Vicki Kavanagh in Blissfield, MI and she survives.

He was a member of the West Mansfield United Methodist Church. Harv graduated from Buckeye Local High School in 1964 and earned his undergrad degree from Ohio Northern University in 1970, eventually earning his Master’s Degree from Purdue University in 1992.
