John F. Harvie, 90 of Damariscotta, passed away on the afternoon of April 19, 2023 after a period of declining health.  Born on January 13, 1933 in Quincy, MA, he was the son of Raymond and Grace (Libby) Harvie.

John grew up in Quincy and attended local schools there.  He moved to Maine in his early thirties and worked in many different fields throughout the years.  He worked in heating, plumbing, electrical work, painting and did basically any handyman work he could find.

Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his son, Matthew Harvie;  sisters, Virginia Powell and Beverly Paul; brothers, Raymond Harvie, Jr, Fred Harvie and Earle Harvie; and daughter-in-law, Carol Harvie.
