Terry Glenn Harvey (aka Mr. Perfect) was born in Cody, WY, on January 17, 1947, and passed from this life on April 2, 2018 from prostate cancer. He is survived by Kimerie, his wife of 46 years; his beloved son Tobe and wife Wendy of Spokane; wonderful nieces and nephews; in-laws Paulette and John Conquergood, Mark Bobier, Carol Harvey; and very dear friends and neighbors. (You know who you are)
His childhood was spent in Meeteetse and Powell, WY. Being the funniest and most quick-witted person I’ve ever known, his regaling of tales about his teen-aged buddies was hilarious. What fun those pesky boys had! After college the U.S. Army gave him a free ride to Vietnam where he served honorably and was awarded the Silver Star and more.
Terry’s favorite tombstone in the Pony, MT Cemetery says only “He Worked”. That was Terry! If 100% was required, he gave 200% and was honest to a fault. He made a lot of friends and acquaintances along the way working for Western Maintenance Company, Hobart Sales and Services/A.C.S., and Montana Job Service.
He felt his greatest achievements were being a loyal, loving husband and raising his wonderful son. When time allowed, he and Tobe enjoyed backpacking and float tube fly fishing. In his retirement years he became an avid backyard gardener. After his beautiful pond area was completed, he spent his days under the gazebo reading, reading, reading.
Tidbits: I have to acknowledge his gorgeous handwriting and artistic talent. Terry loved children…would have been a wonderful elementary school teacher. Our saying when things went wrong was “It’s the HARVEY way!” He definitely was the RIGHT way.
Terry was predeceased by his parents: Jesse and Jacque Harvey; his brother David; sisters Kay Hovey (Lon) and Judy McDonald (Bill); great nephew Baby Casey; and in-laws Les and Gladys Bobier and Louise Bobier.
Should you wish to honor Terry, Help for Homeless Pets, PO Box 1282 Billings, MT 59103 or St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital would appreciate your thoughtfulness. Thank you.
