Herbert (Harvey) Smith II, 59 of Brooklyn, Maryland unexpectedly passed away during his sleep on March 14th, 2021.
Harvey was born in Baltimore, MD on June 15th, 1961. He attended school in the 1960’s and 1970’s but ultimately decided to enter the workforce early, during his adolescence, where he spent over 30 years in the construction and facility maintenance fields. He enjoyed singing and playing guitar, listening to loud music, especially the Beatles, watching his aquarium, fishing with his friends and family, and flying pigeons. He was actively involved in WP Flyers, a competitive bird racing organization he established with his brothers.
Harvey is survived by sister Patricia Sterry, his brothers James (Jimbo) and Thomas Smith, his son Herbert Smith III, his grandson Chase Smith, as well as his nieces and nephews, and many other family and friends.
Harvey is preceded in death by his mother Patricia Smith and his father Herbert Smith.
The cremation will take place in March 2021. Friends and family are invited to attend the scattering of the ashes and a celebration of life at his nephew’s home in Pasadena, Maryland, which will be scheduled at a later time.
