He was born in La Crosse on May 8, 1936 to Archie and Bella (Dahlen) Lunde. Growing up in Timber Coulee, Harvey spoke Norwegian fluently and remembered when he started grade school he had to learn to speak English too.

He was an excellent bowler and received many trophies, enjoyed golfing and played cards five days a week. Harvey truly had a love for baseball and was a lifelong St. Louis Cardinals fan. He and his mother listened to many games on the radio. Harvey was a man of faith and was an active member of the Skogdalen Lutheran Church.

Survivors include many close family and friends. He will be missed. He was preceded in death by his parents, his sister Arline B. Lunde, and his special loving companion of 24 years, Esther "Peggy" Mehlum and her two sons, Monte and Kelly Mehlum.
