LOVELL — Harvey E. Tripp Jr., 55, passed away suddenly on Sunday, Sept. 14, 2014.

He was born in North Conway, N.H., on July 27, 1959, to Harvey and Florence Tripp of North Fryeburg. Harvey attended Fryeburg schools and graduated from Fryeburg Academy in 1977.

Harvey started work at an early age at Riverside Farms for Hal and Clara Thurston. He worked for several other employers over the years and took great pride in operating his own business of snow plowing, firewood and carpentry.

Harvey enjoyed hunting, fishing, being with his family and working hard in the great outdoors. He was a very loving man, and for those who knew him he was rough as bark on the outside and soft as a teddy bear on the inside. He loved working outside and having nature as his playground.

Harvey is survived by his wife, Valerie; son Benjamin and his wife Chelsea, and their daughter Delainey; daughter Heather and her fiancée Patrick Negri; youngest daughter, Carla; his mother Florence Tripp; brother Jeffrey; his sister Deborah; a beloved friend for many years Brandon “Kim” Smith; and several aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews. He was predeceased by his father, Harvey Sr.

For friends and family there will be a small service to celebrate his life in North Chatham, N.H., one-quarter mile past the Baldface Hiking Trail parking area, at a barn he helped remodel. This service will be held on Friday, Sept. 19 at 11 a.m.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Fryeburg Rescue, PO Box 177, Fryeburg, ME 04037.

Arrangements are made with Wood Funeral Home, Fryeburg, Maine. Online condolences may be expressed to the family at www.woodfuneralhome.org
