Elroy T. Harvey Jr.

Date of Death: December 30, 2017

Date of Birth: June 15, 1936


BOWDOIN - Elroy T. Harvey Jr., born in Belfast, Maine on June 15th, 1936, the son of Elroy and Evelyn (Dyer) Harvey, went home to the Lord on December 30th, 2017.

He was predeceased by his parents; a granddaughter, Evelyn Grace Harvey; brothers, Albert, Elmer, Eddy, Burton and Tom; and sisters, Ida, Wilma (Billy), Barbara and Alfreda.

He leaves his beloved wife of 60 years, Rina Voisine Harvey, his three sons and their wives, Michael and Carol Harvey of Bowdoin, Gary and Victoria Harvey of Woolwich, and David and Michelle Harvey of Livermore Falls. He also leaves six grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren, and two sisters and their husbands, Edith and husband Lee Phillips of Belfast, Sharon and husband Danny Corbett of Augusta, plus many nieces and nephews.

He served in the US Army during the Korean conflict. After his discharge he studied barbering at Hanson's barber school in Lewiston. He also worked as security at BIW. He was a master Barber at Freeman's barber shop on Front Street in Bath. In 1975 he owned and operated his own shop, Jr's Barber Shop, where he retired. Since he could never really retire, he went on to work part-time at Ben's Barber Shop and then Front Street Barber Shop. He was a storyteller and jokester which all of his clients loved. "They're handsome again" he'd say.

He was a life member of the VFW in Bath and a member of the Bath Elks. There will be no showing. Services will be held at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Bath on Saturday, January 13, 2018 at 11:00am, followed by a Celebration of his Life.
