Harvey N. Fryberger, 83, of Sheridan, passed away Sept. 8, 2019.
He was born Sept. 12, 1935, to parents Harvey D. and Edith H. Fryberger of Sheridan, Wyoming, where he was raised and attended school until he left for college. He graduated from Colorado State University in Fort Collins where he met Marilyn Maude Thomas. They were married in Arizona Sept. 20, 1958.
Also in 1958, he enlisted in the U.S. Army, where he served for 2 ½ years before he returned to Sheridan to ranch. He ranched for five years, but kept his hand in the cattle business the rest of his life. He was a hard worker in his career of agricultural seeds as a salesman in Wyoming, Nebraska, Colorado, Kansas, and Idaho.
He was active in his community and served others through his church and the Rotary Club of which he was also president for a time. Upon retirement, the couple moved to Green Valley, Arizona where Harvey loved the desert. They were very active at Amado Baptist church, where Harvey also served as an elder.
Harvey was very personable. He loved to make people laugh and always had a rhyme for every occasion or word and used them to brighten up everyone’s day. He was faithful in all of his actions to God, his wife, his family, and friends.
Harvey was preceded in death by his parents, sister, and brother-in-law, Robert and Nancy Prusak.
He is survived by his four children: Carol (Rich) Myers, Lois Sue (Ron) Martin, David (Charissa) Fryberger, Harvey Steve (Katie) Fryberger, 16 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren and his nephew Robert (Jodene) Prusak.
A Memorial service will be held at 2 p.m., Sept. 12, 2019, at St Peter’s Episcopal Church on Harvey’s 84th birthday.
