Uncle Harvey was an amazing man. It was always such a wonderful time when I got to see him and celebrate his birthdays with our family. He certainly lived a long, full and happy life with you, Pauline. Donna and Lois, you were surely his pride and joy. My condolences to all of you. He will be missed. ❤️💔 - Posted by: Debra Sexton (Niece) on: May 15, 2022

Our condolences to the family of Harvey. We met Harvey through Pauline's daughter Mindy (my sister-in-law) and played cards with Harvey at Mindy and Serg's house on several occasions. He was always such a kind, gentle, patient man who loved to win at cards. May he rest in peace while no longer in pain. Hugs to you all. - Posted by: Lynn & Floyd Frommelt (Friend) on: May 14, 2022
Mr Beckel as I knew him was a great man. He treated us kids with the love of a father. Always quick to pull our leg and also teach us something new. There was always Coca Cola around as he got it for free and of course we would always get one. Rest In Peace Harvey and thank you for the life lessons. - Posted by: Wayne Gilchrist (Friend) on: May 14, 2022
