Obituary for Vernon Harvey

Vernon "Bones" Leslie Harvey, 88, of Sedalia, MO passed away Tuesday, August 11, 2020 at Redwood of Raymore in Raymore, MO. He was born on March 20, 1932 in Hughesville, MO the son of John Stephen and Alpha Nadine (Bratton) Harvey Sr, who preceded him in death.

On May 18, 1958 in Sedalia, he was united in marriage to Betty Joan Callaway, who preceded him in death.

He served his country honorably in the US Air Force. He was honored to serve his community by operating Harvey Brothers Implement Company for decades in the community.

Bones loved supporting local sports teams. Rarely did a day go by that he wasn't at a sporting event in the area. He experienced as much joy watching local teams as those players did playing the games.

He also loved spending time with his friends. He enjoyed talking with people from everywhere he visited, and felt like all of his friends were part of his family.

Bones enjoyed the outdoors, and had many great memories of fishing trips with his friends. He had a successful career of playing fastpitch softball, which resulted in his election into the Hall of Fame. The friendships he made during that time meant the world to him.

Survivors include a daughter, Stephanie Harms (Greg) of Kansas City; two sons, Steven Harvey of Belton and Scott Harvey (Beth) of Sedalia; and four grandchildren, Garrison and Carter Harms, and Seth and Luke Harvey.

Besides his parents and wife, he was preceded in death by two brothers, Marvin Harvey and John Harvey, Jr.

A Celebration of Life is planned at a later date.

Burial will be at Memorial Park Cemetery, Sedalia, MO with full military honors.
