SEBRING, Fla. — Hartwick "Harvey" V. Christiansen, 96, a longtime resident of the Fly Creek area, died Monday, Nov. 15, 2004, in Sebring, Fla.

Harvey, who was born in Hampton, Neb., the son of Carl and Inger (Knudsen) Christiansen, moved with his family to the Cooperstown/Fly Creek area as a young boy.

He was a renowned stone mason and during his career worked on the Mary Imogene Bassett Hospital, Hartwick College, the Cooperstown Village Library, numerous area schools and many of the churches in the area. In addition, he was employed on masonry construction/repair projects all over upstate New York.

Harvey married Catherine Davidson on June 2, 1946, in the Cooperstown Presbyterian Church Manse. Together they resided in the Fly Creek area until 1987, when they moved to Sebring.

Harvey loved to play pool and was an accomplished player. He also loved to socialize and would spend hours every week visiting with friends and acquaintances.

While in the area he was a member of the Walter P. Eggleston V.F.W. Post No. 7128 in Cooperstown, the Fly Creek Volunteer Fire Department, the Fly Creek Historical Association, the Otsego Lodge No. 0138 F.&A.M. in Cooperstown and the Danish Brotherhood (now known as the Woodsmen of the World).

Harvey is survived by his beloved wife, Catherine (3651 US 27 South, Lot 64, Sebring, FL 33870-5400); his sisters, Gerda Winnie of Fly Creek and Esther Olmstead of Middlefield; as well as five nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by his sisters, Amy Trevino and Agnes Sahaikian.

A graveside service at the Fly Creek Cemetery will be held in the spring.

For those who so desire, the family suggests that contributions in Harvey's memory be made to the Fly Creek Historical Association, PO Box 87, Fly Creek, NY 13337.

Arrangements are by Tillapaugh Funeral Service, Cooperstown and Milford.
