Harvey O. Bird
November 10, 1924 - December 22, 2017

Harvey was born in Circleville, Utah in a tiny one room house. He proudly served in the U. S. Navy where he did submarine duty as an electrician's mate during World War II. In 1946, he married his childhood sweetheart, Louise Madsen. They had two children, Grady (Laura) and Kristie (Mike). They also had four grandchildren, Lisa, Sara, Stephanie (Andy) and Neill (Ana). In 2013, Harvey was thrilled by the birth of his only great-grandchild, Dawson. Harvey was also proud of his dear sister Valez (Richard).

Harvey worked as a miner his entire career. He got his start in the copper mines of Nevada, worked in uranium and molybdenum mines, and finished his career in the copper mine of Silver Bell, Arizona. He was a hardworking man and was very proud of being a "good hand".

No services are planned. Donations can be made in his honor to the Gospel Rescue Mission. His family was his greatest joy, and he will be deeply missed.
