Gospel preacher listed in Preachers of Today, Vol. 1, 1952, 151. The following appeared in the Gospel Advocate: Harvey M. Harriman, age 80, died on Nov. 21, 1983, in Yucaipa, Calif. He is survived by his wife, Alice Harriman, of Arkansas; three brothers, Herschel and Harrel Harriman, both of Arkansas, and Herbert L. Harriman of Ontario, Calif. Other survivors include two sisters; Mary Ruth Stout of La Harbra, Calif., and Bessie L. Howard of Yucaipa, Calif.; thirteen grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Funeral services were held Nov. 23, 1983, at the Church of Christ in Yucaipa, Calif., with Steve Guy, Richard Shields, Floyd Mitten and John Beebe of the Church of Christ officiating. Interment was completed at Desert Lawn Park. His passing leaves an immense vacuum in the leadership of the Yucaipa Church Educational Department. Harvey was a man whose life was lived for God and his kingdom. The cause of Christ was what he thought about, talked about, and worked for in every sense of the word. It was his life. He was interested in the growth of the Kingdom of God, not just at home, but everywhere. He truly loved the brotherhood-the whole brotherhood. Although we feel an intense loss, we know that Harvey has claimed the final victory and achieved the ultimate triumph. We thank God that he allowed Harvey to live on earth, and that we were privileged to be among his friends. Harvey's work will never die, for there are preachers throughout the United States who are preaching the love of God because of the influence Harvey had on their lives. There are teachers without number who are teaching because Harvey encouraged them to take a class. Harvey Harriman, while serving as the preacher for the Church of Christ in Blackwell, Okla., also taught Bible in the public junior and senior high schools. While teaching in the public schools, he met Alice Louise Beebe and they were later married. After their marriage on Oct. 28, 1930, they made their first home and work together in Perryton, Texas. After this, the Harrimans began their work with dedication throughout Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, and California. They helped to establish two congregations in Kansas and Missouri. In 1941, the Harriman family moved to California. They labored with congregations in Ontario, Southgate, Visalia, La Mesa, Hermosa Beach, Corona, Santa Paula and Yucaipa. Harvey Harriman's influence in the building of churches extended beyond the borders of the United States. - Allan Brown, minister, 818 E. Main St., Florence, Co 81226. --- Gospel Advocate March 15, 1984, 188.
