In the early morning hours of Thursday, February 3, 2021, David Warren Harvey, II, 45, of Hinton passed at home following a long illness. David was born October 6, 1976 to David and Shirley Harvey nee Dunford.
Dave was preceded in death by many beloved family members and pets. They include grandparents James Lee and Norma Jean Dunford and Francis Warren and Eva Laura Harvey; and many beloved aunts and uncles. Through the years, David mourned the loss of many friends.
David is survived by children whom he loved so very much, Aurora Danielle Harvey, Eva Nichole Harvey and the finest Chihuahua ever born, Ciao Ciao. He is also survived by his mother Shirley Harvey of Hinton, father David Harvey, and stepmother Helen Harvey of Rainelle. Survivors also include a sister Melissa Harvey and husband Christopher Scites, half-brother James Anthony Harvey, aunts and uncles Sarah Jo Harvey of Lynchburg, VA, David and Arizona Pyles of Santa Ana, CA, Dennis and Barbara Sue Lilly, and Thelma Grimmet.
David was a beloved son, brother, and father. He was devoted to his family, most of all his children. David coached Upward soccer for many years, and enjoyed working with kids. His most important wish was to be part of his daughter’s lives. He was at his happiest entertaining and cooking for family. Anyone who hasn’t yet, will now never taste the finest steaks ever prepared.
Dave was a friend to all. He treated everyone with respect and kindness and got to know many people from all walks of life. He was characterized by kindness and generosity. He was fiercely loyal. He was a believer in people and always gave multiple second chances to those in his life.
David attended Princeton Senior High School, where he was proud to co-host Tiger TV. He lived and worked for many years in North Carolina, including Charlotte and Fayetteville. He worked in the building trades, and later ran a successful contracting business of his own for many years leading up to his illness.
David had a passion for cars, and he loved to share his passion with others, and spent many pleasant hours discussing and working on various vehicles. He was the reigning champion on music and movie trivia nights. If there was a board game about cars, certainly no one would have played with him. He had a playful nature and infinite curiosity. He would talk to you, and learn from you about nearly any topic.
In the last few years, David had been investigating his spiritual side, and was attending the School of Christian Studies.
Services in celebration of David’s life will be held 11:00 A.M. Saturday, February 12, 2022 at the Ronald Meadows Funeral Parlors Chapel with Assistant Pastor Jonathan Windle and Pastor James Blume Jr. officiating. Burial will follow in the Upland Cemetery.
