Londale Keith Harvey II

Age 18

Hamilton, Ohio

“Fly high my love,” she wrote

He was a “4thWard Boy” — that’s how he described himself, someone who lived in the poorer part of town in Hamilton, Ohio, with pride. He knew about cars and especially loved the Volkswagen Passat.

He called himself “fly.” On Jan. 27, 2019, he was near a barber shop when it happened. Eight people called 911.

“We need an ambulance right now, somebody got killed … my dude’s bleeding out,” one caller said. Londale Keith Harvey, 18, was airlifted to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, where he died. “Fly high my love,” his girlfriend wrote on Facebook. He joins both his parents, who preceded him in death.
