It is with great sadness that the family of Harvey H. Smith, announce his passing on March 18, 2019. Harvey was born on May 22, 1940 in Wallasey, England and moved with his parents, the late Leslie and Edna Smith, to Dayton, Ohio when he was 12 years old.

A new career opportunity in restaurant management brought Harvey and his family to Agawam, Massachusetts where he spent the next 20 years as district manager for Ponderosa and IHOP restaurants. He then took an opportunity to own an IHOP franchise in Southern Florida and lived and retired in Davie, Florida, where he enjoyed the next 30 years in the sunshine. Harvey enjoyed spending time with his family, watching sports, and playing golf. He recently returned to Massachusetts with his faithful dog, Reggie, to his son’s home and final resting place in West Springfield.
