Harvey was raised in the Glenwood section of the city and educated in the Pittsburgh Public School System. He attended Gladstone School. He, like most of the men of his generation, was called to duty and served in United States Army from 1950 - 1953. Upon his return home Harvey found employment with US Steel Homestead Words remaining there until he retired. On May 4, 1959, Harvey was united in marriage to Vivian Garner and from this union 5 children were born. They raised their family in the then closeknit community of Homestead and became lifelong residence themselves. Harvey was a well liked and respected member of the community. He always had a warm smile and welcoming "hello" to everyone he encountered on his daily walk to work. Harvey loved the Lord and professed Jesus Christ as His personal savior during his early adult life. He was an active member of Morning Star Missionary Baptist Church in Glenwood. He was a faithful husband, father, brother, and friend. He loved sports, particularly baseball, music, and above all his family. On December 16, 2014 Harvey Alfred Brown, Sr. departed this life. He is preceded in death by his beloved wife, Vivian (Biddy) Brown and 4 children. He leaves to cherish his memory his 6 children: Vicki Motley, Gary (Nettie) Brown, Terry (Eugene)Brown-Groce, Michelle Brown, Harvey (Kelly) Brown, Jr., and Alan (Mona) Brown; 17 grandchildren, 5 great grandchildren, 1 brother, Walter (Clara) Brown of Louisianna; brothers and sisters-in-law; dear friends, Hattie Collie, Thelma Young, Mary and Edward Atkins; and a host of nieces, nephews, and friends, too numerous to mention.
