Harvey Sweet, age 92 of Crystal, passed away at his home on Saturday, June 13, 2020 under the loving care of his family and Sparrow Hospice.
A “jack of all trades”, Harvey was a guy who could do just about anything and if he didn’t know how to do something it didn’t take him long to learn how and figure it out. Harvey proudly served his country in the U.S. Army. After his discharge from the military he owned and operated Cumming Saw Shop in Lansing and MP Sales in Potterville for many years and retired to the Crystal area in 1982. After his retirement, Harvey, not being one to just sit around, took a job at the Crystal Motor Speedway where he worked for many years and drove farm trucks. Harvey has either built, wired, or plumbed countless numbers of houses for both family and friends and was the kind of guy who would help you out or give you the shirt off his back if you needed it.
Surviving Harvey is his wife of almost 70 years, MaryLou; daughter, Terri Sweet of Portland; son, Larry (Dianna) Sweet of Howell; grandsons, Luke Adams of Crystal; Lee Adams of Lansing; Steven Sweet of Palm Beach, Florida and great grandson, Luke Adams of Mason.
Harvey was preceded in death by his parents, Harvey & Bethel (Sawyer) Sweet; sister, Pat Smith and brother, Howard Sweet.
A celebration of Harvey’s life is being planned for a later date.
