July 8, 1929 – October 10, 2021
John Harvey, loving husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, from West Nyack, New York, passed away peacefully on October 10, 2021. He was 92 years old.
Mr. Harvey was born on July 8, 1929 to Thomas and Elizabeth Harvey. After growing up in the Bronx, John met his beloved wife Karoline of 65 years and moved to West Nyack, New York to raise their family.
Mr. Harvey’s greatest joys in life were his family, faith and service to his country. His loss will leave a void of passion, love and true kindness. He will forever be remembered for his avid storytelling, witty sense of humor and heartfelt words of wisdom.
Mr. Harvey was a prominent member of Saint John’s Episcopal Church, serving as Usher Coordinator for several years. During his career, John worked as a Manager and Transportation Engineer for Time Inc. for nearly 40 years. John had a special place in his heart for cars, music, especially the bagpipes and the Glenn Miller Band, and his cherished New York Yankees.
He is survived by his wife, Karoline, daughter, Lorraine, grandchildren, Connor, Cole, Craig, Cameron and Cierra, and his great-granddaughter, Madison.
A visitation for John will be held Wednesday, October 13, 2021 from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM at St. John's Episcopal Church, 365 Strawtown Rd., New City, NY 10956. A funeral service will occur Thursday, October 14, 2021 at 10:00 AM at St. John's Episcopal Church.

When my wife and I came to St John's New City a few years ago, John and others welcome us with open arms. I have the honor to usher with him in many Sundays before the COVID. In addition, we are also the loyal members of the "Man's club" at St John's. The vivid stories John and other WWII veterans told about their experience during the war and the history about our neighborhoods after church service will stay with me forever. God bless, John!
