Harvey and Kay always made us Olsens feel so welcomed and warmly loved in their home, at the club, on the lake. And oh their smiles! They lit up the lake! Sending my deepest sympathies and love to your family from Madison. Jori Lenon

Harvey and Kay were a ray of sunshine, that touched all of our lives. They will live on, in all of our fond memories of Cedar Lake Yacht Club. I loved them both.
Prayers are with you, Lois.

To a great CLYC "C Boat" skipper, and friend, for 59 years who taught me, and then my brother, that sailing is much like life. Have a plan, set your own course, pay attention to your surroundings, don't get caught on the lea side of the fleet, watch the winds and readjust if past experience tells you to do so. I know this is great advice as we won many races over the years I sailed with Harvey, and was great advice as it guided me as an adult. Yes, Harvey was a wonderful friend and mentor, and his wife, Kay, was an avid supporter with the sweetest smile and kind word for everyone. We will miss them dearly, but our fond memories will last forever.
