Renowned Chef from Jacksonville dies at 72 after Giving Away 500 Turkeys

Jacksonville Chef Alvin Harvey, known for his generosity and dedication to serving those in need, has passed away at the age of 72. The funeral service for Chef Alvin Harvey will be held on Wednesday, March 27 at Julington Baptist Church on Snyder Street. Harvey was well-known for his efforts to give back to the community, including organizing events such as giving away 500 free Thanksgiving turkeys in the Brentwood neighborhood.

Chef Harvey’s giving spirit extended beyond Jacksonville, as he and a group traveled to Louisiana in 2005 to provide meals for those affected by Hurricane Katrina. He believed in the importance of helping others and understanding their struggles, stating, “If I reach down to pull you up I want to feel your pain because we are all just one paycheck away from being homeless.”

Harvey is survived by his wife Nancy, two daughters, and two sons. His legacy of kindness and compassion will continue to inspire those who knew him. Copyright 2024 by WJXT News4JAX – All rights reserved.
