Larry Wayne Harvey, 78, Warsaw, passed away quietly in Merrillville at Methodist South Lake Hospital Saturday, Sept. 11, 2021. Known by many as “Harv,” Larry was a longtime Kosciusko County resident though he was born in Goshen June 17, 1943. He spent his formative years in Elkhart, before moving to North Webster where he graduated in 1962 and made his home in Warsaw for many years.
A hard worker, Larry dedicated more than forty years to R. R. Donnelley where he held several positions, his favorite of which was as Tabloid Coordinator. It was while working at Donnelleys that Larry met Linda Kimmel; they were married on Oct. 14, 1967, and spent nearly fifty-four years together before his Saturday morning passing.
A lover of the outdoors, Larry enjoyed fishing on Carr Lake, when he could, and liked working around his homeplace: chopping wood, landscaping and caring for more than five acres. He loved reading the Bible, studying and growing in his Christian faith – he especially enjoyed the writings of John MacArthur. He was also a longtime member of Community Bible Church, Warsaw. He also enjoyed classic cars, having owned several throughout his life.
In addition to his faith, he loved his family more than anything. Survivors include wife, Linda Harvey of Warsaw; two sons of whom he was very proud: Larry (Felicia) Harvey II of Pineville, N.C.; and Lucas Harvey of Warsaw; six grandchildren who he adored: Theodore (Ana) Harvey of Warsaw; Briealle Harvey of Oakhill, Fla.; Clarissa Harvey of Pineville, N.C.; Mia Harvey of Pineville, N.C.; Ashton Harvey of Warsaw; and Mason Harvey of Syracuse; and brother, Richard (Norma) Monk of Warsaw. He was preceded in death by father, Wayne H. Harvey and mother, Vera R. (Wyatt) Monk.
