Harvey S Armstrong was born November 11, 1919, in Chicago to the late Robert and Maria (Perry) Armstrong.
He proudly served his country during World War II with the 4th Division of the United States Marine Corps. He participated in landings on Roynamur, Saipan, Tinian, and Iwo Jima. He received a Purple Heart Medal as a result of injury on Iwo Jima.
On June 5, 1948, he married the former Eleanor Akerhielm in Chicago. Harvey and Eleanor traveled around the world and loved to go camping with their two sons, Tom and Glenn.
Harvey and Eleanor raised their family in Lansing, Illinois, later resided in Bridgman, Michigan for over twenty years and then in Tucson, Arizona, for the past ten years.
Harvey loved the simple things in life – home, family life and the church community were most important to him. Harvey could always be counted on to lend a helping hand or a shoulder to lean on.
Survivors included his wife of 60 years, Eleanor; two sons, Tom (Sherry) Armstrong of Philipsburg, Montana and Glenn (Sarah) Armstrong of Highland Park, Illinois; five grandchildren, Jamie (Barry) Adams, Brent Armstrong, Kathryn (Timothy) Martin, Marion Armstrong and Christopher Armstrong and four great-grandchildren, Dean Madley Adams, Royce Adams, Jenna Adams and Eleanor Martin.
