Obituary for Harvey Franklin Harris

Harvey Franklin Harris, 82, of Evansville, Indiana, a loving husband, father, grandfather, and friend continued on his journey to God and passed peacefully on March 11, 2019. Born December 24, 1936, in Madisonville, Kentucky, he was a valued employee for several companies, working for Whirlpool, Mechanics Laundry, and Cintas. After retiring from Cintas in 1998, he worked part-time for Radiopharmacy.

Harvey valued family and friends, hard work, home-cooked food, and a good Clabber game. He enjoyed sports his entire life, played basketball for Central High School and was named to the All City Basketball Team in 1956.

Harvey was preceded in death by his parents Robert Lee and Bertha Ann (Bourland) Harris; sister Beatrice; and brother Bob. He is survived by his wife of 29 years Rita (Frick) Bippus Harris; son Scott (Kathy), daughter Stacy (Mike); stepsons Mike (Becky), Chris (Debbie), and Matt (Karen); brother Larry (Stefanie); 11 grandchildren; and too many close friends to count.

Our family is indebted to oncology physician Dr. Thomas Waits for taking care of Harvey for 10 years. We also thank his chemo buddies and the staffs at the oncology center and Deaconess Gateway for their outstanding care and support.

Visitation will be held from 10:00 am until 1:30 pm on Saturday, March 16, 2019 at Browning Funeral Home, 738 E. Diamond Ave.

A celebration of Harvey’s life will be held at the funeral home on Saturday, beginning at 1:30 pm.

For those interested, the family suggests donations to the charity of your choice in Harvey’s name.
