Life Story / Obituary


Robert "Bob" Harvey finished his last race on December 15, 2018. He was first-born to Bob & Betty Harvey in Grand Rapids on January of 1954. After a couple years guidance, he proceeded to do things his own way-learning what he wanted to learn, fixed what he wanted to fix- all brilliantly!

He is survived by Anita, his wife of 38 years; his sister, Gail Steinmetz; a passel of nieces, nephews, in-laws.

Bob found joy and challenge in racing sailboats on both soft water and ice – adjusting, refining, correcting. His las enterprise was shared with great friends on the boat “Sisu” – “tenacity with grit and grace”.

No service is planned. However, there will be a memorial gathering at the Muskegon Yacht Club on Saturday, February 2, 2019 from 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Bob's favorite causes: Muskegon Heritage Museum, Muskegon Junior Sailing Association at the MYC or Harbor Hospice Foundation.

Fair winds, Bob
