~ Family Tribute ~

Harvey Lawrence graduated from Boys Town High School in Nebraska in 1961. He had many different jobs during his life, but most of them were in logistics, either driving or directing trucks full of cargo. He was very involved with his community, leading the Wyandotte Senior Friendship Club, coordinating his town for the Boys Town Alumni Association, serving as an usher and lector for St. Francis Xavier, and later St. Joseph Wyandotte parishes.

Harvey loved to travel, visit, and eat. He traveled around the country, even moreso after he retired. Most of those trips included visits to family, friends, or annual functions back at Boys Town. Three things were true of visits from Harvey: 1.) He would be early, 2.) he would be hungry, and 3.) he would have a story to share. He always had stories to share. Harvey appreciated a good meal, hotly-contested card games, and big belly laughs. Friends and family always knew Harvey would be there.

Harvey will be missed and forever in our hearts.
