Norman “Dick” Richard Harvey, 96, of Bellefonte, passed away on Monday, May 24, 2021, at Juniper Village in State College. Born on April 4, 1925 in Howard, he was the son of the late Joseph W. and Alice A. (Johnson) Harvey. On March 31, 1948 he married his beloved wife, Rose Marie (Nelo) Harvey, who preceded him in death in 1998, after sharing 50 years of marriage together.

Dick was a 1942 graduate of State College High School. He went on to serve in the United States Navy from May 1943 until he was honorably discharged in April 1946. He served two years in the South Pacific as a signalman (SM 2/C) on a LST (Landing Ship-Tank). During his time in the service, he was awarded the Asiatic Pacific Medal, American Theatre Medal, Philippine Liberation Ribbon, American Theatre Medal, and the Victory Medal.

Dick graduated from Penn State with his bachelor’s degree in 1950. He began his employment in the sales division of the former Titan Metal Manufacturing Company (currently known as Cerro Metal Products Company). He retired in July 1990, as the Manager of Marketing Services.

He is survived by a daughter, Patricia A. Johnson of New Jersey, and three sons, Michael D. Harvey of Virginia, Stephen W. Harvey of Bellefonte, and Daniel T. Harvey (Lori) of Julian. Also surviving are his five grandchildren, Jennifer Johnson, Alysson Johnson, Edward Johnson, Dylan Harvey, and Danielle Harvey, and numerous nieces and nephews.

In addition to his wife and parents, he was preceded in death by one son, Joseph W. Harvey, II, two brothers, J. Harris Harvey, and Lewis D. Harvey, and three sisters, Mary K. Harvey, Helen C. Smith, and Francis M. Smith.

Dick was a life member of the American Legion Post 33 in Bellefonte, B.P.O.E. #1094 in Bellefonte, and the Penn State Alumni Association. Additionally, he was a member of the United States LST Association, Pa. State LST Association, Bellefonte Retirees Bowling League, and State College Retirees Bowling League.
