DUNDEE: Harvey R. Greenberg, of the town of Barrington, NY, passed away at home on February 1, 2017 at the age of 64. He is survived by his wife Judi, his daughter Megan, and his sister Lola. He was predeceased by his first wife, Janiece.
Harvey was born in Bayonne, New Jersey, graduated from the Cranford High School class of 1970, and attended the Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, where he received a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics with high honors and a Master of Science in Computer Sciences in 1974. Through the AFROTC program, he received a commission as a second lieutenant in the United States Air Force.
His first military assignment was as a Minuteman Missile Launch Officer in Minot, North Dakota, where he also studied business administration, earning his M.B.A. in 1980. His career took him to various scientific and technical jobs, among which was program manager for the E-8C Joint STARS surveillance aircraft. He retired as a colonel in 1996 from Hanscom AFB in Massachusetts and then started a second career in project management and software related to publishing and content management from which he retired in 2013.
Harvey stayed extremely busy in retirement. His many passions included classical music, cooking, baking, wine, flying, travel, and watching the sunset over Keuka Lake from his beloved home on Dutch Street. He served on the boards of the Penn Yan Flying Club and the Finger Lakes Chamber Music Festival, volunteered at local wine competitions, and worked as a tasting room assistant at Domaine Leseurre winery.
Honoring his wishes there are no prior calling hours; a memorial service will be held in the spring.
