He was born May 19, 1923 to Carter and Daisy Bowers Pence. He was a member of Wakeman’s Grove Church of the Brethren. He served in the army during World War II and had several occupations. His first choice was farming since good land stewardship is essential to man’s survival. He was preceded in death by brothers, Frank, Gilbert, George and foster brother Glenn Barrick and sisters, Irene Miller, Hilda Cooper, Geneva Renninger, Annie and Katie Pence and stepsister, Virginia Spence.
Harvey is survived by his wife of 65 years, Pearl Rhinehart Pence whom he married on December 20, 1946; one brother, Robert; sisters, Dorothy Pence and Roberta Wall and foster sisters, Frances Gochenour and Grace Minnick; and numerous nieces and nephews.
