Harvey, Paul

Paul Norman Harvey, age 72, of Interior, S.D., died on Friday, September 29, 2017, at his ranch southeast of Interior.

Paul Norman Harvey was born on December 30, 1944, to Lynn and Helen (Hansen) Harvey. He was baptized and was a member of the First Presbyterian Church in Interior. Paul attended Interior Elementary and graduated from Interior High School in 1963. He attended one and a half years of college at Black Hills State University in Spearfish. It was during this time he met Linda Johnsonberg in Rapid City. 

Paul enlisted in the Army National Guard Ready Reserve Program in 1966. He completed Basic Training in El Paso, Texas. After Basic he came back to Interior and ran cattle at different places.

After they were married, Paul and Linda lived in Milesville, SD where he worked as a ranch hand for a short while. When Paul’s dad had a heart attack he was called back to Interior to run the old Cowboy Corner Grocery. When a small ranch came available for him to purchase, he sold the store and bought his ranch that he loved so much.
