Our beloved father, grandfather, great grandfather, brother, companion and friend Harvey Myria Presley passed into eternal life on Mar. 18th in Sparks, NV. Harvey was born Nov. 26th 1932 to Elmer and Martha (Cooper) Presley in Bee Branch, Arkansas.

Harvey grew up in Plainsburg, CA. He was a standout student and athlete at Le Grand High School. He competed in baseball, football, basketball and represented his school at Boys State. In 1952 he was inducted into the Army Security Agency. He received top security clearance and served as a Morse Code Intercept Operator. Along with his assigned duties he played basketball for the Army while stationed in Korea.

Harvey settled in Reno, NV. where he made many friends at the Post Office, Chess Club, Norther Nevada Seniors Golf and anywhere he went.
