Thomas Harvey Jr. Obituary

Guille was born on March 7, 1936 in Kenosha, Wisconsin and died on Thursday, February 29, 2024 at the age of 87 in Wayland, Massachusetts. He was the son of Tom and Gracia Harvey. Guille moved to Indianapolis in 1940 with his parents and sister Diana and attended School 84. Here, he developed a love of classical piano and choral music and expressed this with piano lessons and participation in choral groups. He had the pleasure of playing the Warsaw Concerto at the 8th Grade Piano Recital. At this time, he joined the Boy Scouts and enjoyed learning new skills, camping fun and making new friends. He became an Eagle Scout and then joined a Sea Scout Troop to learn how to sail which he did on several trips to Lake Michigan. He was always fascinated with sea stories, especially tales of foreign adventure. At Shortridge High School, he participated in numerous activities such as plays, talent shows, clubs related to government, school newspaper, and speech contests. When he learned about an opportunity to join the US Navy, he quickly applied for and was awarded an NROTC Scholarship to Miami University (Ohio) where he was a Business Major and member of Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity. At graduation in 1958, he entered the Navy Supply Corps as Ensign, SC, USN and was assigned as Ships Stores Officer on the USS Bennington (CVS20) located in San Diego, CA and then Assistant Navy Exchange Office at Naval Training Center, Great Lakes, IL. After completing his active duty in 1961, he joined the Naval Reserve in 1962 and completed numerous training assignments in various aspects of Navy Supply afloat and ashore with his final assignment at OP04-Logistics at the Pentagon. He retired from the Naval Reserve in 1983 with the rank of CAPTAIN (06), SC, USNR.

Guille was married to Ann Zieg in November 1972 and was blessed with son John (Heather) and grandchildren Katie, Cameron and James and daughter Susan (Mike Miceli) and grandchildren Cayden and Cole. He has had the great joy of living with a wonderful wife and happy healthy children and grandchildren.

In his civilian career, Guille received his MBA from Northwestern University in 1962 and worked as a case writer for the Northwestern Marketing Department preparing studies about various challenges in Marketing at Chicago corporations for publication in Marketing textbooks. He then became a Marketing Research Analyst at Market Facts, Inc. in Chicago, responsible for projects related to advertising effectiveness and product acceptance tests. In 1968, he moved back to Indianapolis to work at Citizens Gas and Coke Utility and Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Marketing Research until he changed careers and became a Supply Officer at the Army Finance Center from 1976 to 1980. He then moved to the Defense Contract Management Agency as Contract Administrator and enjoyed the challenge of problem solving and troubleshooting associated with contracts awarded by the Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force to a wide variety of small, medium and large contractors in Central and Southern Indiana. He retired from DCMA in 2007. During retirement, Guille enjoyed membership in Rotary Club of Indianapolis and Service Club of Indianapolis.

One of the great joys of life for Guille was participating in the St. Luke’s United Methodist Church Chancel Choir from January 1992-December 2017. Beautiful sacred music at Sunday worship services and magnificent Christmas Concerts provided a constant reassurance of the glory of God and the gift of his blessed Son Jesus Christ.
