Paul Warren Harvey of Steelville, Missouri was born on Friday, May 31, 1946 in Newburg, Missouri to Warren G. and Marie (Smith) Henson. He was adopted by Carroll E. and Mary B. (Morgan) Harvey and passed away on Monday, July 20, 2020 at the age of 74 years, 1 month and 20 days.
Paul was raised on a large hog farm around Gilliam, Missouri by his adoptive parents. He was reunited with his five biological sisters when he was in his twenties.
Paul worked for over 18 years on barges on the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers. He was an over the road truck driver for over 30 years and some of his happiest times were when he was driving his truck. He loved fishing, particularly for the “big” fish. He enjoyed watching football and riding motorcycles. He was very generous, and if he had it to give, he would help anyone.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Carroll and Mary Harvey; sisters, Vesta (George) Bramel, Marsha (Gene) Hiedler and Susan Roberts; and his nephew, Billy Earney.
He is survived by his sisters, Katherine (Danny) Earney of Steelville, Missouri and Joyce (Phillip) Knight of Ft. Worth, Texas; other relatives and friends.
The family chose a private memorial with cremation as the final disposition.
