Obituary

Harvey Lyle Wolbert, age 93, went to be with his Lord and join his wife Joanna on May 8, 2018.
He passed away peacefully with the support and prayers of family and many friends.

Harvey was a lifelong resident of Holland Michigan and a WWII veteran. He worked as a postal clerk selling stamps and had many other responsibilities in the Holland office until his retirement at age 55. In selling stamps, he once said that he helped to "send spit" around the world. He enjoyed his postal office role because he enjoyed meeting and greeting people. Upon retirement from the post office, Harv took on a part-time job selling postal uniforms for Nye Uniform.

Harv and Jo enjoyed the fellowship of friends during winters at Golf Lakes in Bradenton, Florida. Harv became an accomplished shuffleboard player and won many tournaments. He competed in Michigan as well.

He is survived by his sons Dave (Kris), Paul (Amy) and Dan (Ann), grandchildren Julie (Dave Doll), Jennifer (John Frego), Laura (Joe Olwig), Ellen, Ryan and Amy. Harvey had four great grandchildren: Laney, Lee, Mya and Owen. His sister Donna Harmsen and sister-in-law, Ella Topp, also survive.

A private burial took place at Pilgrim Home Cemetery on Friday, May 11. A memorial service will be held on June 1, 11:00 AM, at Covenant Presbyterian Church, 1015 East 32nd Street Holland MI 49423. A light lunch will follow. Donations can be made to Holland Christian Schools in lieu of flowers.
