For the later part of Harvey’s life, he found the friendship of Dorise Olson, who started as a friend and dancing partner, and finally became his constant companion. Harvey and Dorise were not only dancing partners but travel partners, travelling throughout Canada and around the globe, taking a million pictures along the way. Anyone who knew Harvey knew how much he loved to dance. If there was music playing, Harvey was; if not dancing, tapping his feet.
