Born on August 18, 1918 in Bethlehem, PA, Harvey Nelson Trone was a son of the late George and Ellen (Treubler) Trone.
In 1940 he enlisted in the U.S. Army and began a distinguished 20-year military career. Serving as a Combat Medic with Company A’s 4th Medical Battalion, Harvey saw action at several of WWII’s infamous battles including Omaha Beach and on into Germany. A recipient of three Bronze Stars, he often said of his experiences, “What I did, I did for my country.”
After Harvey’s retirement from the military, he worked for several years at the Penn Troy Company in Troy. On October 2, 1949, he married the former Nora Daddario in Philadelphia. They were blessed with 67 years together and raised a daughter, to whom Harvey was very devoted.
Harvey was of the Baptist and Lutheran faiths. He was a member of Allentown’s American Legion, Canton’s V.F.W. and Troy’s Masonic Lodge. He loved the beauty of nature and the outdoors, was a knowledgeable gardener, kept an immaculate yard and enjoyed hunting in earlier years. He also loved traveling to Florida with his family in their motor home.
He was predeceased by his daughter, Roberta Nora Trone on June 14, 2012; sisters and brothers.
