Francis Stephen Harvey, Jr., age 81, passed away unexpectedly on September 1st. He was born in Worcester and was the oldest son of Francis and Genevieve Harvey. He was the beloved husband of Carol for 54 years. He was the father of Kevin F. Harvey (Antonia) of Worcester and David P. Harvey (Krista Reagan) of University Place, WA. “Papa Steve” also leaves behind his two adorable and much loved grandchildren, Emma and Conor Harvey. He is survived by his brother John (Patricia), sisters Elizabeth Andring (Daniel) and Mary, and nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by brothers Paul and Kevin and a sister Carol.
Steve, as he was known, was a graduate of St. John’s High School, Shrewsbury. He received a Bachelor’s Degree in Civil Engineering with a concentration in Structures from Merrimack College, North Andover, MA. For over fifty years Steve, formerly President of Harvey & Tracey Associates, worked as a registered Professional Engineer. His projects included working as a superintendent for numerous construction firms and developers, and as a consultant for repairs and restorations of design projects. His experience included a multi-year international hospital restoration project in Guiana.
Steve was highly involved in the community and believed in giving back to those less fortunate. He served as President of the Boys and Girls Club during their capital campaign for a new facility. He was a former Vice-President of the MA Society of Professional Engineers, a board member and Chair of the Building Committee at Briarwood Continuing Care Community, a member of the Property Committee for Mechanics Hall, a member of the Finance Committee at Blessed Sacrament Parish, a member of the Ancient Order of the Hibernians (AOH), a director at Bay State Bank, a board member of the Elder Affairs Commission during the construction of the Worcester Senior Center, and a Board member of the McCauley Nazareth Home and of the former Becker College. One of his last projects before retiring was to supervise, along with WPI students, the design of the Myra Kraft Bridge at Elm Park. In retirement, he volunteered at the food pantry of the Urban Ministries of Hope and served as the President of the Goose Rocks Resort Condominium Association in Kennebunkport Maine.
Steve was an avid bicyclist and a devoted follower of Irish culture, history and music. He enjoyed visiting his ancestral home of Ireland and visiting relatives. Steve was a fan of college level hockey and especially enjoyed NCAA hockey at the DCU no matter who was playing.
