John Patrick Harvey

PLATTSBURGH — John Patrick Harvey, age 68, of Plattsburgh and formerly of Saranac Lake passed away Tuesday, May 21, 2013 at his home with his family by his side after a long and courageous battle with lung cancer.

John was born in New York City on Sept. 30, 1944. He was the son of Patrick and Agnes(Clarke) Harvey.

John had been employed for 20 plus years at St. Joseph's Addiction Treatment and Recovery Center until his recent retirement due to illness. This was John's true passion in life to share his experience and to help others with their struggles with addiction as he had been helped. John had also been employed at Yonkers General Hospital as a counselor and prior to that he had been employed in the construction industry for various trade organizations. John also served in the U.S. Army Reserve for six years.

John was an avid Yankees and Giants fan. His other passions in life were music and golf. He played the fiddle much to his families enjoyment and loved listening to all types of music especially in the car on his many trips to Maine, Virginia and South Carolina to visit family and to play golf.

John is survived by his two sons, John Patrick Harvey Jr. of Kissimmee, Fla., Thomas James Harvey of Bangor, Maine; and his grandson, Nikolas Harvey also of Bangor, Maine; his companion, Karen Baker of Plattsburgh and her three children Nicole, Susan and Jeffrey Duve and her five grandchildren; one brother, Dr. Kevin Harvey (Dr. Lorena Harvey) of Midlothian, Va.; two sisters, Marie Keaveney (Brian) of Midlothian, Va., Georgine O'Donnell (John) of Westchester, N.Y.
