News » The Fly-By



Nicknames are tricky things, since they tend to stick with you long after you want them to. Case in point: an,intriguing gravestone in Forest Hill Cemetery. We didn't know Harold E. Harvey, but we assume he was a nice fellow, perhaps rather large in girth, and his pals bestowed a friendly nickname on him during his rather brief lifetime. But do you think Harold, wherever he may be today, is happy that they also engraved "CHUNKIE BOY" on his gravestone?
