On October 14th, 1956, the business partners became family when Harvey married Patricia “Pat” M. Lewis, daughter of Wink and Evelyn Lewis in Brighton, IN. The family business would soon branch out to become auctioneers, REALTORS® and appraisers. Their motto was to “Stay honest, truthful and fair.”
Growing the family business, Harvey and Pat had three daughters together, Debra, Denise, and Dodie. The daughters recall fond memories of attending auctions with their Grandpa Lewis and their father. Wink Lewis passed in 1977, but the dedication and passion he instilled in the company lives on today.
