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

Chef Alvin Harvey, a well-known Jacksonville chef, passed away at the age of 72. Known for his generosity and dedication to serving those in need, he left behind a legacy of kindness and compassion that will continue to inspire those who knew him.

Harvey was deeply committed to giving back to his community. He organized events such as giving away 500 free Thanksgiving turkeys in the Brentwood neighborhood, demonstrating his belief that everyone should have access to nutritious meals during the holiday season.

But Harvey’s generosity extended beyond Jacksonville. In 2005, he traveled with a group to Louisiana to provide meals for those affected by Hurricane Katrina. He understood the importance of helping others and empathizing with 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 family and friends will gather on Wednesday, March 27 at Julington Baptist Church on Snyder Street for his funeral service. They will remember him as a kind-hearted man who always put others first and who made a positive impact on the lives of many people in Jacksonville and beyond.
