David Harvey Death, Obituary – It is with great regret that we have to be the ones to inform you of the passing of a long-standing member of our community; yet, we feel bound to do so. We ask that you accept our sincere sympathies for the trouble that you’ve caused. Please accept our condolences. Since then, “Blessing” has evolved into our signature piece, and it is now sung as the last song at the end of each and every event. He was remarkable as a musician as well as a person, and he will be fondly remembered for the qualities he held as a musician as well as for the character he possessed.
The NCMS commissioned David Harvey to write a composition for the society, and the result was “Blessing.” He was exceptional both as a musician and as a person, and the piece was named after him. Both as a musician and a person, he was extraordinary in his own right. His legacy will be maintained for all time as a result of the NCMS collection, and it will never be in danger of being forgotten. During this trying time, David’s wife Bonnie and the rest of his family are in our thoughts and prayers. David was a friend to everyone who had the privilege of knowing him, and everyone who knew him thought of him as a gift.
David is regarded as a “gift” by those who have had the honor of calling him a friend, and at the end of the day, not just one of Maine’s governors, but both of the state’s governors chose him for crucial jobs at institutions that are of service to the entire state. He was appointed to serve on the Elder Advisory Committee, the Long-term Care Steering Committee, and the Maine Social Worker Registration Board, respectively, by both Governor Kenneth Curtis and Governor Angus King. Long-term care services fall within the purview of these committees, which are responsible for their oversight.
