Services for Arthur R. Harvey, a supervisory engineer for the Westinghouse Electric Corp. at Baltimore-Washington International Airport, will be held at 11 a.m. tomorrow at St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church, 7902 Liberty Road.

Mr. Harvey, who was 52, died Saturday of a heart attack in an ambulance en route from his home on Ethland Avenue to the Liberty Medical Center.

In 1986 he won the bronze George Westinghouse Signature Award of Excellence. He was a member of the Executive Council of the Baltimore Chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery.

Born in St. John, Ind., he was a 1960 electrical engineering graduate of Purdue University. He attended the Space Education Institute at the University of Maryland in 1961 and received a master's degree in electrical engineering from the Johns Hopkins University in 1968.

He had supported the Young Victorian Theater Company as a member of the technical crew, financial supporter and host for cast parties.

At Morgan State University, he advised computer students, supervised interns working at Westinghouse and helped members of the Society for the Advancement of Computer Science to build a robot.

Mr. Harvey had been an adult leader for Boy Scout and Cub Scout groups of the Trailblazer District, first at the Dickey Hill Elementary School and later at the Hillsdale-Chatsworth United Methodist Church, and volunteered at the Manna House soup kitchen of the Midtown Churches Community Association.

Mr. Harvey is survived by his wife, the former Cynthia Camper; a daughter, Michelle Ruth Harvey of Pikesville; two sons, Irvin Cannaday III of Baltimore and Lamont Weston Harvey of Pikesville; his parents, George Richard and Ruth Eilers Harvey, both of Sun City, Ariz.; and a sister, Lois Ramirez of Burbank, Calif.
