Former Goatwhore and Ritual Killer bassist James Harvey has passed away. Recently his sister, Rachel Harvey Strait, shared the information via a GoFundMe that has been set up to handle costs and go to his sons, Jay and Oliver.

A brief statement made Strait read:

It is with a broken heart that I announce the passing of my big brother James E Harvey IV. He died peacefully in his sleep on July 26 as an otherwise healthy 35-year-old. He lived an epic life and we will carry on his legacy. Our focus is on family unity and supporting Lorrena, Jay and Ollie.

Though his service will be a small family gathering, we will plan for a larger celebration of life in the coming months. For anyone who would like to contribute in his honor, please donate to the education of Jay and Oliver through this site:

Strait also shared the following via GoFundMe:

James was larger than life. His family was the most important thing in the world to him. He always stressed the importance of education to his boys and had high expectations for them. Though he was an environmental engineer by education and trade, he was also a builder and mechanic, musician, chef, and motorcyclist- he could do it all. James had friends all over the country from many walks of life. He lived a life with no regrets and was proud of his accomplishments and his relationships. Although we only had 35 years with him, we have amassed a lifetime of stories. Anyone who knew him would agree that he had a commanding but gentle presence. He may have towered over you but he had a way of making you feel big.

We have created this page so that everyone whose life was touched by James and his family can contribute to Jay's and Oliver's future, so that they may live lives that James hoped for.

You can donate to the GoFundMe here.
