Dear Harvey,
You are always in our hearts we share stories of things you did I can't forget how sweet you were to my mother whom you called Grandma! You were so strong! Every time my son "lost" one of his matchbox cars under the fridge he would confidently say when Harvey comes he'll get it out and sure enough when you visited you moved the refrigerator and got his car out! So many memories! God Bless You my dear and one day we'll meet again!

Harvey Joseph Gardner III, 35, was truly wise for his age. An animated energized man that excelled at living, he had an astute appreciation and passion for life. "Harvey was adored and appreciated for his strength, integrity, and wisdom--he was my big brother, my teacher, my friend," said his youngest brother Anthony.

Harvey saw himself as a work-in-progress and always strove to be the best person that he could be. Three years ago, he decided to go back to school to become a certified computer technician. He realized an insatiable interest in the field and began his job at the World Trade Center two years ago. Harvey had a knack for making everyone comfortable and many of his coworkers soon became part of his family.

In his spare time, Harvey could always be found running or riding his bike at the beach in Spring Lake, NJ--he lived in Lakewood, NJ with his other brother, Mark for the last four years. He enjoyed and participated in the martial arts, loved to cook, loved his family and protected them throughout his entire life, was an American patriot, a student of history, and a collector of memories. He will forever be remembered for the sensitive, strong, beautiful man that he was.

His family is FOREVER PROUD.
