Harvey graduated from West Nottingham Academy. A hard worker, he was a self-employed farmer and rural route carrier for the United States Postal Service for 28 years. Harvey was a long-time member of Ebenezer United Methodist Church. A true farmer at heart, he loved showing off his collection of John Deere toy tractors to visitors. In his retirement, Harvey enjoyed going to weekly sales at Gibney's. He loved watching baseball, especially his favorite team, the Baltimore Orioles. Harvey also was a fan of the Baltimore Ravens. His greatest joy was in spending time with his family. Harvey and his wife, Susan spent a great deal of time at the Rising Sun Little League Diamond where they supported and cheered on their sons. He will be remembered for his contagious and to the heart laugh and chanting, "Home Run Time!" when his boys were up to bat.

Harvey is survived by his beloved wife of 38 years, Susan (Roop) McGrady of Rising Sun, MD; three sons: Harvey "JR" McGrady and his wife, Heidi of Rising Sun, MD, Curtis Guy McGrady and his wife, Caroline of Rising Sun, MD, and Kenneth Garland McGrady of Mesa, AZ; three grandsons: Cody Lane McGrady, Austin G.

In addition to his parents, Harvey is preceded in death by his grandson and angel, baby Conner.
