“Baby, Cancer got me” Wayne “Boogie” Harvey lost his fight on July 26, 2022. He left us peacefully with his wife of 39 years, Carol, by his side and country music playing in the background.
Boogie was a lifelong Hot Springs resident and always had a story to tell. He loved to make people laugh with his fun and energic personality.
He will be extremely missed by his loving wife, Carol, his son DuWayne and his grandbabies, Brenden and Blakely, Brother-in-laws, Bill and Paul (Anna) Sternberg, Jennifer Brundige-Andrews; “His Girls”- Haley (Justin) Harper, Serena Sunshine, and Robin, numerous nieces and nephews as well as framily – his friends he considered family. Special thanks to Al Marti – for being his best friend and Michelle Goodale, Sherry Lunsford, Joe, and Barb Mende for being a light when it was so dark. To the nurse, “Mina” at CHI ICU, thank you for being an amazing support as we sent our Boogie to join his mother and stepfather, Edna and Lester “Tom” Wilson, his father, Paul Harvey, his brothers, Larry, Paul and Gary, his brother-in-laws, Wally and Bobby and sister-in-law Peggy at the gates of Heaven.
The family and friends will be celebrating his life at the property this Saturday, July 30th at noon.
Arrangements are entrusted to A Natural State Funeral Service.
I believe that Wayne is probably in every memory that I have for the first 30 years of our lives. News of his passing hit hard. I know that cancer got him but I know he put up a hell of a fight too! He will live on in my memory and I am sure in the memory of his family as well. Until we meet again Wayne, Rest In Peace buddy!
RIP Uncle Boogie
You were the best uncle ever! You will be forever missed. I love you uncle Boogie! Til we meet again.
He was the most up-beat funniest guy I have ever met. We could be down about something and he would bring us up and before long we were laughing. We all will miss him. Praying for his loved ones.
I have a really sweet memory of Wayne who was my cousin from the early ’60’s, likely the last time I saw him. My parents and I were visiting our grandparents in Hot Springs when Wayne and Larry took it upon themselves to give me the grand tour of Hot Springs. They made it such fun and bought me a Hot Springs souvenir spoon which I still have. Being with those two guys that day was so special. I am so sorry we have not kept up with each other over the years.
You was so special to me you and carol are and always be my forever family Rest In Peace until we meet again
Love ya always
Sandra and Steve
Boogie, I remember you as a kid growing up, always at your mom and dads house. I grew up next door to Mr. and Mrs. Wilson. You took such good care of them. And you made the best Godfather Pizza ever!!
I can’t remember a time when you didn’t have a smile, a story or a joke, but you drew the conversation to you. The lawn chairs would fill with people under the big tree in the Wilson’s yard, and I’d find my Mama either at the fence talking or in one of those chairs. A good son, a good friend, we will miss you, Boogie. Rest in Peace
Carol I’m so sorry for your loss. I hope you will find solace in your beautiful grandchildren son and wife All our love 💖
