Jackie Lee Harvey, 79, of Raleigh, NC, went home to be with the Lord on June 15, 2023. He was born February 11, 1944, in Clay County to the late Fred Seldon and Blanche Maude Harvey. Jack graduated from Nichols County High School and received a Bachelors in Math from West Virginia Institute of Technology. He went on to do pioneering work in Information Technology with the Boeing Corporation for the Saturn V rocket program and later with the U.S. Army at Fort Lee, VA, during the Vietnam War. Jack continued his career in IT with several government and private organizations until his retirement in 2010.  

In his personal life, Jack was active in a wide variety of interests including playing golf, coaching baseball, gardening and exploring the coast of North Carolina.

He will be deeply missed by his loving wife and best friend of 57 years, Christina Jean Harvey of Raleigh, NC; his son, Nick (Meredith) Harvey of Asheville, NC; his daughter Amanda (Doug) Bordeaux of Archer Lodge, NC.
