Life Story:
HARVEY, PAULINE-Beloved mother, sister, aunt and friend Pauline Harvey passed away on the evening of April 18th. She lived an extraordinary life that took her from a small town in northern Florida to a career in aviation administration to more than fifty years as wife and mother of four in Miami. Polly was deeply loved by her husband John, a captain for Delta Airline, her four children Paula, Greg, Ron and John, and her numerous friends from her longtime home in Panama City, Florida, the Delta community and in Pinecrest. Polly was an incredibly strong, positive person who was inpsirational to her children, family and friends: she was vivacious and enjoyed socializing, bridge and traveling around the world. A fourth generation Floridian, Polly was proud of her family heritage as a Curry and a Darley: her great-grandfather the Rev. Whitmill Curry was the first Superintendent of Schools in Holmes County, Florida. The Curry School of Education at the Universtiy of Virginia is named for his cousin Jabaez Curry, an influential educator and U.S. Representative from Alabama. Polly was a direct descendant of Thomas Darley, one of the earliest settlers in Georgia, who fought in the Revolutionary War and was a renowned Methodist minister. She is reunited with her loving husband John and is survived by her daughter Paula and sons Ron, Greg and John, sister Johnnie Gaskins, brother Robert Darley, Jr., daughters-in-law Glynnis, Alzbeta and Maureen and grandchildren Glynnis, Lara, Jack, Ronnie and Catie. Thank you Mom, we love you. Visitation will be from 5-8 PM Monday, April 22 at Stanfill F.H., with Wake Service at 7:00 PM. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:00 AM Tuesday, April 23 at St. Louis Catholic Church, 7270 SW 120 Street in Miami.

John Harvey: Newspaper Obituary and Death Notice

Captain John Harvey

December 20, 1928 ~ December 26, 2006

HARVEY, JOHN, of Pinecrest, FL, completed his life's journey on December 26, 2006, surrounded by his loving wife Pauline and his adoring children John, Ron, Greg and Paula. Born on December 20, 1928 in Normal, IL, John walked confidently in the directions of his dreams, and achieved them. Through school, John excelled across the boards as a student, athlete and musician. He served in the Army in Korea and attended the University of Illinois, where he got his training as a pilot. Following a brief stint teaching flying in Marianna, FL, where he met his wife, John embarked on a 34-year career as a highly respected pilot and captain for Delta Air Lines. While at Delta John also served as chief negotiator for the pilots union. John loved his family above all things, and that love was fiercely returned by his wife and children. We were fortunate to spend so many happy hours with him in his many roles as a fantastic father: husband, friend, playmate, teammate, fan, golf buddy, teacher, coach and mentor. John was loved and cherished by his family and wonderful friends for his profoundly loving, compassionate and generous nature. Hand in hand with this personal warmth went incredible intelligence, creativity and an easy, engaging and endearing sense of humor that will be sorely missed by all who knew him. He was blessed by his marriage of over fifty years to the love of his life, Polly, and their final decade together was deeply enriched by the arrival of five beautiful grandchildren, Glynnis, Jack, Lara, Ronnie and Catherine who will carry on his legacy of love, kindness and compassion. John is survived by his wife Pauline, loving sons John, Ron and Greg, devoted daughter Paula, sisters Florence Travis and Sister Mary John Harvey, and daughters-in law Glynnis, Alzbeta and Maureen. He joins three brothers and three sisters in eternal rest. Thank you forever, Daddy. Visitation will be held Friday, December 29, from 8-10PM at St. Louis Catholic Church. A mass of Christian Burial will be held at St. Louis Catholic Church 7270 Southwest 120 street on Saturday, December 30, 2006 at 12:30PM with Entombment to follow.
