He loved his family very much.  Harvey also loved Oak Island and he liked eating good barbecue and fried flounder.  He was known as the grill-master and he loved to fish and to tend his garden.  His favorite pastime at the beach was looking for seashells.  He was also an avid birdwatcher and was especially fond of watching eagles.  He was a front porch sitter and loved his time outdoors.

He is survived by his wife of 51 years, Doris, which was the love of his life.  He is also survived by his children: Tiffany Gaddy (Larry Edwards), Tara Allman (Robin Belk) and Travis Gaddy (Jennifer), and his 5 grandchildren: Kyle Allman, Cody Allman, Dallas Baker, Haven Gaddy and Brynn Gaddy.  Other survivors include his sisters Lois Watkins, Janice Laney (Erby), and Linda Baldwin, and his brother Truby Gaddy (Katherine).
