Harvey Frauenglass,

Harvey Frauenglass,

Age 91, of Embudo, NM, died at home on April 17, 2021, surrounded by loving friends and family. Harvey graduated from the University of Chicago in 1948, attended the University of Edinburgh, and received his MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Iowa in 1958.  He served in the US Army in Germany, where he met and married his first wife, Dita Adam and had 4 children, Mark, Andrew, Marni and Susan.  Harvey taught at Northern Arizona University, then worked for Sandia National Lab, produced educational media, and advocated successfully for Bosque preservation in Albuquerque. After moving to work at Los Alamos National Lab he met and married artist Gayle Fulwyler Smith.  They moved to Embudo where they bought a farm with an old apple orchard.  Harvey and family and friends made organic Big Willow Cider.  A storyteller, Harvey wrote about experiences and life on the farm in “Cider Master of Rio Oscuro.”  Harvey said the book was a treatise for future cider makers sharing what he had learned about apples and, as a memorial to his daughter, Marni. Harvey is survived by his wife Gayle Fulwyler Smith Frauenglass; children, Mark and Andrew Frauenglass, Susan F Swierc; Peter Keegan; Connie, Richard and James Fulwyler; sister Judith, brother Lloyd; grandchildren, cousins, nieces, nephews and a host of longtime friends.  Harvey was preceded in death by his daughter, Marni, and two siblings, Marilyn and Elliot. A virtual memorial will be held June 6, 2021; see www.facebook.com/harveyfrauenglass for information.
