Obituary

Harvey Austin Camp, Jr., 92, went peacefully to his final rest on Thursday, December 5th, in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Harvey, who was a devoted husband, father, church member, retired Major in the US Army, and a World War II veteran, is survived by his loving wife of 71 years, Kathryn. Harvey and Kathryn had four sons: Harvey A. Camp III of Calabash, NC; Charles G. Chuck Camp of Columbus, OH, William A. Bill Camp of Chattanooga, and Sidney L. Camp deceased. Harvey is also survived by seven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. He was born in and lived in Decatur, GA before moving to Chattanooga when his father, Harvey Sr., took a job in a local insurance company. Harvey was stationed in the Philippines and then numerous islands building aircraft landing fields in the South Pacific Theater from 1942 to 1944 with the Army Corp of Engineers. Following the war, Harvey attended the University of Tennessee in Knoxville where he studied engineering and architecture which launched his career as a designer, developer, and construction manager of many schools, shopping malls, and other projects up and down the East Coast. This included the remodeling of the main terminal building at the Chattanooga Regional Airport. Harvey was an ardent supporter and lifelong member of Grace Episcopal Church in Brainerd, where he served many years on the vestry as well as an Acolyte Master in addition to his unofficial role in building design, maintenance, and grounds work. In his spare time he was an avid gardener, grape arborist, and vintner who was featured in local newspaper articles for his unusual flowering plants and selections of wine. A memorial service will be held at Grace Episcopal Church at 20 Belvoir Avenue, Chattanooga, TN 37411 on Wednesday December 11th. There will be a visitation with the family held at 10 AM at Grace Church followed by a brief service at 11 AM in the main sanctuary. The family has requested that, in lieu of flowers or gifts, contributions be made to the Grace Episcopal Church Book of Remembrance.
