    My heartfelt condolences to Karen and Charlie and Rose and Paul. It is so sad to lose a sibling or a child. I certainly know the great sadness of losing siblings. Although 50 or more years have passed, I will always remember Paul as a lot of fun, a great dancer, and someone who was a part of a few escapades in my younger life. I have learned he was an amazing parent, grandparent, and great grandparent; someone who loved kids. I am so sorry for your loss. Makes me sad. Hugs and sympathy to you all.

    RIP Paul, and deepest condolences to his family and other loved ones. Paul was a great, genuine, dynamic, funny, friendly, jocular, salt-of-the-earth, give-you-the-shirt-off-his-back kind of guy. Also the life of the party – he and Sue (my sister-in-law) were treasured guests at the wedding reception for me and my wife Peg in Madison in 2002. It was always a treat to see him on trips to Racine for holidays and family occasions; everyone loved for him to drop by, watch the game or see the fireworks, have a beer, chew the fat. He is missed.

    Our sympathies from myself and my family.. We grew up with Jimmy and the rest as his parents and ours were friends for many years. Whenever we went over to his house, Jimmy always had something going on, and it seems like we usually managed to get into trouble. I remember once when he decided we were going to dig a swimming pool and line it with bricks. Paul was not happy when he came home and saw the hole we had dug. I will always remember fondly visiting with Paul and Rosemary, and the kids. Hadn’t seen you for awhile Jimmy,, but you’ll always be in our memories.

    Sending heartfelt sympathy to Keith, Paul, Katie & Dustin. I did not know your Dad but Keith spoke of him and I knew from what was said that he was an extraordinary man in many ways. May you find comfort in all of your memories of your Father.

    Paul was a man with a big smile and a good story. Never at a loss for words. When he was in a room, you knew it!
    His generosity to others lives on through his children.
    Kevin tells the story of when Paul was teaching him to drive. Way before Kevin was 16! (It might have been a beer run for Paul) Well, You can all imagine how that went!
    Truly, We have lost a wonderful man.
    God Speed Paul
    Much love and prayers for the Harvey Family

    Our sympathies go out to the whole family. Unfortunately we are unable to attend the services; but our thoughts and prayers have been with you all since we received the sad news. I’ve known Paul since we were kids; and have nothing but fond memories of all of the years since. Paul was a great friend and a great father. I only remember that Paul always had a smile on his face and was always there for friends and family. I always thought he would outlast me and most of our friends; He will surely be missed more than anyone can imagine. Rest in peace Paul. With all of our love,
