February 02, 1927 ‒ January 18, 2016
Harvey Moore, age 88, of Centerburg died unexpectedly Monday, January 18, 2016 at St. Ann’s Hospital in Westerville.
He was born on February 2, 1927 in Viper, Kentucky the son of the late Fred V. and Sara Elizabeth (Turner) Moore.
In the early 50’s Harvey was introduced to a young lady who was friends with his sister. They lived on opposite sides of the hill in Viper, Kentucky. That young lady was Bonnie Adams and they were married on January 7th, 1956. Harvey and Bonnie just celebrated 60 years together as husband and wife before he was granted his eternal reward in Heaven.
He was a veteran of the United States Army and was stationed in Germany during the Korean War.
In 1967 Harvey and Bonnie bought the farm in Centerburg where they worked the land, raised hogs, and gardened nearly any vegetable you could imagine. Throughout the years, he worked for Cellar Lumber in Marengo, Kit Manufacturing in Mount Vernon, and retired from Carter Lumber in Condit.
Harvey was a member of the Centerburg Free Will Baptist Church. You could find him there on Sundays singing and proudly praising the Lord.
As long as he was catching fish, Harvey liked fishing…he’d go out to the pond on his property or the Alum Creek.
If you knew Harvey, you knew he loved his word searches and carried them everywhere he went.
Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Bonnie; sisters Beatrice of Kansas and Mary of Michigan; and numerous nieces and nephews.
In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by siblings, Lois, Homer, Lorene, Henrietta, Hoyt, Burley, twins, Thelma and Elmer, Frank, and Pauline.
