Harvey was born on September 8, 1964 in Amarillo, Texas to Clara S. and Harvey L. Ratliff, Jr.  He lived in the Washington D.C. area for a short period of his childhood but spent most of his early life in Amarillo, graduating from Tascosa High School in 1982.  After graduation, Harvey earned a Bachelor of Business Administration in both Finance and Management from West Texas State University.  Harvey spent the majority of his life in the Dallas Fort Worth metroplex as a successful real estate investor.

 

Harvey and Lacye married on June 11, 2005 and completed their family in 2015 when they were blessed with two children, Madison and Frankie.

 

Harvey was revered as a great outdoorsman by all who know him.  His love of hunting and fishing started at an early age, and he enjoyed sharing it with anyone who would listen. Harvey also enjoyed traveling, it didn’t really matter the destination as much as the time spent together.

 

Harvey was a dedicated husband, a loving father and a committed son and brother.  Family was the most important thing in his life.  He considered himself to be “the funny guy” – always bringing a smile to everyone he was with.  Harvey’s gentle spirit was a portrayal of his unconditional love – he had a good listening ear and although he was a man of few words, his wisdom shone through when he spoke.  Harvey’s love for Christ was evident throughout his life in the loving kindness and compassion that he showed to all.

 

Harvey was preceded in death by his father, Harvey L. Ratliff, Jr.

 

Survivors: Harvey is survived by his loving wife, Lacye and two adoring children, Madison, 18 and Frankie, 16.  He is also survived by his mother, Clara S. Ratliff; his brothers, Thomas, and his wife, Gleyna; Franklin, and his wife, Sunny; George, and his wife, Bess; his sister, Lillie and her husband, Jeff Farris; 12 nieces; ten nephews; five great-nieces and nephews.
