He leaves behind a special sister, Eleanor Shiffrin, a sister-in-law, Norma Rein and a sister and brother-in-law, Lynda and Ivan Radowitz as well as many nieces, and nephews. Harvey also leaves behind a dear group of childhood friends from Newark including Saul Goodman, Stuart Jason, Paul Gluck, Samuel Karpel and those who are already deceased, Robert Goodman and Arnold Kaplan. Harvey was a role model and loved by all who knew him for his quick wit, kindness and all around good guy persona. He will be missed by everyone who knew him because to know him was to love him. Harvey will be forever in our hearts and thoughts.
