Rock Springs Miner no. 17 April 26, 1918
ROBERT G. HARVEY DIES OF PNEUMONIA

The death of Robert Harvey occurred last Saturday at the Wyoming General Hospital, after a brief illness with pneumonia. His death robs his mother of her only son, and she has the sympathy of the community in this second heavy blow which she has sustained during the present year.

Robert George Harvey, only son of Mrs. Joseph Harvey, was born in Rock Springs, December 29, 1902, being 15 years, 3 months and 21 days old. He was a bright and studious boy and had attended the High School in this city where he was highly thought of by his teachers and his schoolmates. Being of a sunny disposition he made a host of friends wherever he went. The pupils of the ninth grade, of which he was a member, were allowed to leave to attend his funeral and pall bearers were chosen from amongst his classmates.

He is survived by his mother, four sisters, namely: Pearl, Audrey, Amy and Hazel, his father having been killed just three months and one day previous to his death.

The greater part of his life was spent on a farm near Lander, Wyo., and Lupton, Colo., coming here with his parents and sisters in Dec. 1915, and since that time his home has been in this city.

The funeral was held from the Congregational church on Monday afternoon, conducted by Rev. T.P. Jenkins. Many beautiful flowers were sent by loving friends to adorn his last resting place.
