    Default John Harvey, RIP

    F847C258-35D0-4537-B196-F3861CCC943B.jpgWith a very heavy heart, I regret to report our good friend and perennial AMCA National Road Run participant, passed away recently when John was senselessly run over by a tractor trailer while coming to a stop on Rte. 80 E in Iowa because of of a traffic accident that was known to drivers of all vehicles by a warning sign along the roadway. The driver of the tractor trailer is reported not to have given John any warning nor did the driver hit his brakes before impact. An investigation is ongoing. Photos and a detailed report can be found on the internet. Sad.....

    I met John and his close friend "Wild Bill" at the Seven Springs road run in 2007 I believe it was. Every time I went to a road run since he was one of the first persons I looked for. Always a huge smile and an honest how have you been. We just road the Catskills this summer. He had just retired. It is so very sad. Such a great guy. To his friends and family my most sincere condolences. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. RIP John.

    John was such a kind and friendly guy who, along with his long time pal Bill, always had a glad-to see-ya smile for me when I came to eastern Road Runs and Meets. My sincere sympathy to you Bill and all his friends in the Allegheny Chapter and to his extended family. What a tragic loss of a good guy too early in his life, who will be remembered and missed by those who knew him. Rest in Peace, friend.
