About the Mission:

The family of Harvey Hugh Levin has requested Patriot Guard Riders participation in his military honors funeral services. Harvey, 89, passed on Friday, August 12, 2022.

Born in Albany, New York, Harvey was a lifelong resident of the area, except for a short stint in Derry, New Hampshire. He was a graduate of Hudson Valley Community College and an Army veteran. After being on active duty between 1953 and 1955 during the Korean War, he spent the majority of his working career in retail working for companies such as W.T. Grant, Denby’s, B. Lodge & Company and Home Depot. He always had a passion for connecting and helping people.

Harvey was a member of the Noah Lodge #754, Altamont, NY, Cyprus Shriners #5, Albany, NY and American Legion Post #1493, Voorheesville, NY. Harvey was always quick with a joke and had a contagious smile.
