Joan, David and Mark:
Until last night I was unaware of Harv's passing. I am so sorry. So many memories of time with all of you--seems so long ago--but many of those moments helped to shape my life.
Memories: Paying me to hang with David and Mark and find me asleep upon return with Joan (and then having me back multiple times);finding time to take me to Shakey's Pizza to see if he could help me focus on schoolwork; determining the best name for me was Mr. Misinformation (because he knew I was not always telling it as it was; driving me to Summer School after my sophomore year of High School because of such a poor report card; providing me with a job at American Seal's Asphalt plant where I learned so much; numerous rounds of golf at TCC where laughter was more important than the final score (at least sometimes--especially when there were too many salesmen in the group who did not stop talking), to lunches a couple of times at Spillin the Beans--where he shared how proud he was of his sons.
And Joyce and Bailey Cadman will never forget Harv. Many social activities together and Harv's commitment to my brother Doug to start him on his career and provide such a great opportunity to learn and grow professionally.
Men like Harv are rare. His battle with cancer handled so courageously and with such a positive attitude. I know that I will miss him much and will recall with love the time I spent with Harv and he spent with me.
Not a better role model than Harvey Gross. Peace.
