The Family of Wayne & Marilyn Youngquist send condolences and prayers to Harvey's family. Harve was more than our UPS man, he was a friend who became family. We have so many wonderful memories. We pray God's peace rests on this dear man, and all the lives he has touched, just as he touched ours. May all who knew him find solace in rich memories. Fondly, The Youngquists

Our sympathies to the Westveld family. Harve was such a kind and caring person. I remember when we first started going to Second Church Harve and Rosie invited us over to make us feel welcomed and introduce us to other young families. With Love to all of you! Joe and Aileen VanderSchuur 🌹❤️

I was just a young kid when I worked with Harve at UPS. I looked up to him and admired his values, kindness and Integrity. He was a ray of sunshine at UPS. Always positive.
