His love of sports grew from childhood to retiring with softball at the age of sixty-nine and he continued to coach women’s softball and enjoyed every minute of winning games and tournaments.  Harvey also loved to play golf, however he once said he believed he loved being with his friends and the beautiful nature he was surrounded by more.
