October 02, 2006

Kenneth Dale Harvey Sr., a retired trucking company owner and pilot, died of heart failure Tuesday at Gilchrist Center for Hospice Care. The longtime Westminster resident was 74.

Mr. Harvey was born on his family's farm in Corbett. He was raised there and in Westminster. He attended Baltimore County public schools.

He began driving trucks on his family's farm when he was 10 years old, said a daughter, Jacqueline Dale Eyler of Westminster.

Mr. Harvey later established K.D. Harvey Trucking Co., which hauled stone from local quarries. He sold the business and retired in 1994.

Mr. Harvey earned his private pilot's license and had owned a Piper Tri-Pacer and a Cessna. He had flown to Georgia and Massachusetts and enjoyed taking his family on flying vacations, Mrs. Eyler said.

He enjoyed dancing and was an active member of the Westminster Moose.

Services were Saturday.

Also surviving are two sons, Kenneth Dale Harvey Jr. of Groveland, Fla., and Shannon Christopher Harvey of New Port Richey, Fla.; two other daughters, Patti Ann Sullivan of Westminster and Debra Jayne Barnhart of Finksburg; two sisters, Audrey Cramblitt of Uniontown and Anita Johnston of Hagerstown; four grandchildren; a great-granddaughter; and a special friend, Eleanor Donohue of Manchester. His marriage to the former Betty Wright ended in divorce.
