Dave Clinton Harvey passed away peacefully in his home surrounded by family early Sunday morning January 29, 2023, following a short battle with pancreatic cancer. He is survived by his wife Ina, siblings Elaine Harvey, Brett (Karen) Harvey, Wade Harvey, Julie (Danny) Hoffer, Betsy (Lee) Tate, Mark (Jody) Monosso, William (Teresa) Monosso, children Vanessa (Jared) Ewell, Thomas (Kassadie) Harvey, Jesse (Leah) Harvey, and nine grandchildren, who he loved very much. He is preceded in death by his son Philip Harvey, mother Alice Monosso, father Clair Harvey, stepfather Dale Monosso, and sister Marilynn.
Dave was born in Moab, Utah on June 12, 1957 to parents Alice Jo Rhea and Clair DeVere Harvey. He spent his childhood growing up in Tooele, Utah. As a boy he loved running around with his friends and siblings causing mischief and playing practical jokes. He served a full time mission in North Carolina for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In his early 20's he met the love of his life, Ina Jane Iverson. They were married in the Salt Lake City Temple on June 1, 1979.
Dave was a builder and fixer of many things. He loved woodworking and collecting tools. He was a hard worker and always had projects going. He spent most of his working life at Sav-Mor Auto Clinic as an automotive mechanic, where he made many lasting friendships, and always looked back on his time at Sav-Mor with fond memories.
Dave loved the outdoors. He loved hiking in the mountains and looking for arrowheads in the desert. He loved taking his children hunting, fishing, and camping as they were growing up. He loved the peace you could feel in the wilderness. He often talked about moving to the mountains and living in a tent.
He made the best cookies in the whole world, and he was known for sneaking his little grandchildren chocolate because he loved it so much. They were always grateful.
He loved his children and grandchildren very much. He always kept his family at the top of his priority list. Dave was a funny man who was always down for a good tease.
As a man of few words, he had a simple, yet strong, testimony. Because of a lifetime of experiences, he gained a testimony that there is a God and that Christ died for us so that we may live again with our families for eternity.
Funeral services will be Saturday, February 4, 2023 at 11:00 a.m. at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 345 West 100 North Santaquin, Utah. A viewing will be held Saturday morning at the church from 10:00 - 10:45 prior to services. Interment, Santaquin City Cemetery.
In Lieu of flowers, please send chocolate. "For the grandkids"
