R.D. “Dale” Harvey, 90, of Broken Bow, formerly of North Platte, died Nov. 7, 2010, at Broken Bow.

He was born Aug. 12, 1920, the youngest of five children, to Isaac Franklin and Adella Belle (Pickett) Harvey in Buffalo County on the Harvey farm, south of Sweetwater. He attended school in Poole, and then later graduated from Ravenna High School in 1937.

He became a mapmaker for the U.S. government during WWII and then enlisted in the Merchant Marines to better serve his country. Crossing the Atlantic Ocean multiple times, his ports of call were Africa, Italy and France. Ensign Harvey was honorably discharged in December 1945.

In 1949, he was hired by the Union Pacific Railroad as a fireman and retired in 1986, as an Engineer on the second district. He always said the U.P. was a great job and he enjoyed it. To supplement income in the early years, he joined Allen Shattuck in a floor covering business and worked until the late 1990s.

In retirement, he enjoyed volunteering with many organizations including the VFW and the Moose Lodge No. 551. He was a volunteer VA van driver, taking patients from North Platte to Grand Island for over 10 years. He was also a member of the Eagles Aerie and American Legion.

In 1999, he married Elsie Krs Karel and she preceded him in death on Aug. 16, 2008.
