Harvey A. Taubert

December 2, 1929 — November 3, 2021

HARVEY ARTHUR TAUBERT was born December 2, 1929 to Arthur and Anna (Arends) Taubert on the family farm just southeast of Beaver Creek, Minnesota. He grew up on the farm and attended school in town where he later graduated. He then attended West Mar College in Le Mars, Iowa and graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Mathematics. Following his education, Harvey enlisted into the United States Navy where he served his country in the Korean War for the next four years. Harvey was stationed aboard the John A. Bole destroyer ship working as a sonar operator. Following his honorable discharge in 1955, he returned to the states. On June 12, 1955, Harvey was united in marriage to Carol Anderson at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in San Diego, California. The couple returned to Beaver Creek and made their home on a farm outside of town. In 1974, they moved with their young family to Ramona, California. Harvey worked preparing taxes for H & R Block and later went to work as a spray painter for an industrial company. In 1985, the couple returned to the Midwest and made their home in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. At this time, Harvey went to work again for the local H & R Block. In 1988, they returned to Beaver Creek and a short time later, Harvey purchased his own H & R Block franchise, located in Le Mars, Iowa. He would continue operating the company for the next 24 years, until his retirement in 2012. In August 2019, Harvey became a resident at the Minnesota Veterans Home in Luverne, Minnesota, where on Wednesday, November 3, 2021, he died peacefully at the age of 91 years, 11 months and one day.

Harvey was a faithful member of the First Presbyterian Church in Beaver Creek. He was an avid baseball fan and loved following the Minnesota Twins. He also enjoyed following the Minnesota Vikings football team. Throughout his life, Harvey very much enjoyed tending his vegetable garden and spending time with his dog, Marley. He had a dry sense of humor and will be remembered for his honesty, kindness to others and as being a man of faith to the Lord.

Harvey is lovingly survived by his wife of 66 years, Carol of Beaver Creek; six children, Harveen (Bruce) Gluf of Sioux Falls, Kristi (Rob) Geffs of Phoenix, Arizona, Philip (Beth) Taubert of Sioux Falls, Renae (Martin) Murphy of San Diego, Ardis Taubert (Morice Meckels) of Luverne, and Mark (Penni) Taubert of Beaver Creek; 15 grandchildren; 24 great-grandchildren; and other relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, Arthur and Anna Taubert; and a brother, Floren Taubert.
