  1. Sharon and family,
    I am saddened to hear of Harvey’s passing. I remember fond memories of high school years and his big smile and such a good athlete. I was fortunate to hear him play his music a few times over the years and always enjoyed. Praying good memories help comfort your family.

    Sharon – you don’t know me personally, but Harvey was a cousin to my father in law Robert G Kifer or “Bobby” as Harvey referred to him. I was honored to meet Harvey a couple of years back and he shared some photos and stories about family history because I have been researching the Kifer family history for my husband, Tony. We are so sorry for your loss. Harvey was a very sweet man and a kind spirit. Tony and I enjoyed time spent listening to his stories and the family pictures he shared with us. Please let us know if you need anything. You can contact us at or Tony’s phone number is 405.923.4399.

    To the Family and many friends of Harvey Derrick,
    I am sorry for your loss. I use to work with Harvey at Faith Electric from about 2003-2010.
    He was a neat man for sure, a good soul of a man. I enjoyed working with him. I also enjoyed talking to him when I would run into him after I left Faith.
    He was one of the best singers snd guitar players I have ever seen. He invited me to Guthrie one weekend morning to watch him perform, I took my date there, we had a great time!!!
    I also remember the beautiful music he played at Rhet Randolph’s retirement party.
    He could do beautiful country and beautiful gospel music.
    Had I known sooner he passed, I would have for sure made it to to the services.
    Thanks Harvey for the good memories, music, and friendship. You had a wonderful and blessed life for sure.
    Time for you to continue to make beautiful music for the ear of the Lord.
    Until we meet again, Rest In Peace….🙏🏻✝️🙏🏻
