When Harvey finished cutting his lawyer teeth at the IRS he was mentored by the most prominent Essex County tax lawyer who was himself a client of my father. They decided that we should buddy up! We did and it lasted through earlier this month. Harvey was a go getter and his early practice was unusually prominent with many sophisticated falsely accused criminally charged citizens. Harvey’s work was sophisticated and distinguished. He put aside ,as a good lawyer must,any criticisms from the peanut galleries of life and did not get bogged down in any unwarranted recriminations leveled at his doorsteps. As must be,the clients come first and Harvey never bottomed to his prime duty to them!
Socially Harvey was affable and well versed in the social graces. He looked after brother Donnie as he did for Harvey. I never learned of any unkind events between them. There was always familial cross support. It was enjoyable for me to see. When I divorced them they each intimately worried and consulted for the benefit of the other and supported each other in every way. They enjoyed true brotherly love.
We stayed in touch and continued our dialogues of life throughout the last fifty years as though we had just spoken yesterday. Harvey was always responsive. Many people stay in touch with their divorce lawyer and express their understanding of where life brought them. I keenly knew of Harvey’s feelings of disappointment in his first marriages. I knew of his true fondness for each of his children. I knew when Harvey last married long ago that he had found life contentment and he knew that he had reached the mountaintop of married life. He knew it too and was not shy about it. Harvey was a complex individual and yet he projected to the outside non family friends a person of simplicity which was his public persona. In reality he was self made as to his many talents and his personality will be sadly missed by his actual friends and family as well it should be.

Sorry to hear of the tragic loss of Harvey. Always an incredible smile and a very infectious laugh. Tremendous ball player and loyal friend. I will remember him fondly from my sophomore year and the afternoon practices with coach Murray and our fellow team mates. Rest in Peace....

Harvey and I grew up together as next door neighbors and school mates. We shared fun times playing pick-up sports until Harvey moved up to varsity level basketball. I moved up to the stands to watch and applaud Harvey and our amazing Mountain HS team win a state championship in 1962. 58 years later, 3,000 miles away, these fond memories are bright and shining. You will be missed.
