Harvey Blowe passed away peacefully at his home surrounded by his family on June 16, 2018 at the age of 74. He was born July 1, 1943, in Hopewell, Virginia to James Edward Blowe and Verale Hill Blowe.
Harvey graduated from El Paso Technical High School in 1964 and enlisted in the Army at Fort Bliss where he served the country he loved until 1968. After his time in the Army, Harvey became the store manager for Piggly Wiggly and this is where he met the love of his life Josephine Duran. In 1978, Harvey moved his family to Midland, Texas where he became a postman and an office clerk for the U.S. Postal Service until he retired in 2004.
Harvey’s hobbies included being the lead singer and dancer of a band called The Ambassador’s where he played at many venues and earned an award for Rock N Roll battle of the bands. He also enjoyed being a Cub Scout Leader for his sons’ troop for the Boy Scouts of America. He enjoyed fishing, gardening and camping with family and friends and was the master of cooking his specialty of brisket and ribs.
Harvey asked to share with you, one of his favorite bible verses.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. Psalms 23:4
