June 29, 1927 — May 26, 2020

HARVEY D. LOVENBURG, 92 of Grant, former longtime Madrid resident, passed away May 26, 2020, at Perkins County Health Services in Grant.

Harvey was born June 29, 1927, at Madrid, Nebraska, to Ed and Isabelle (Kelso) Lovenburg. He attended school in Madrid.

Harvey was quite reserved and tended to keep to himself. He was honest and hard-working, enjoying the simple things of life. Harvey always enjoyed spending time around kids and animals. He also liked to take an occasional trip to the casinos until his health would no longer allow such adventurous outings.

Harvey is survived by his son, Don of Enders; daughter, Sharon Gartner of Chadron; special friend, Katy Miyamoto of Grant; six grandchildren; sixteen great-grandchildren; five great-great-grandchildren.
