Harvey raised 2 different families in his lifetime plus several extended family members whether it was full time or part time (summers/holidays). His two families and extended family soon became one. Harvey started his working career in the Great Bear Lake. He joined the labourers union #602 which became local 1611. He helped build the Kent prison, the 2 Chilliwack malls, and the Coquihalla highway. In his last years in the workforce, he worked for Emil Anderson. Harvey was known for his love of sports. He played with great passion whether it was slowpitch / 2 pitch, hockey, badminton, fishing or curling. This is a joke going around that he tried golfing and tipped the golf cart. Harvey was also known for his umpire skills. He was the ump that you loved to hate as he let you know in no uncertain terms who was in charge.
Harvey won several medals and trophies in his lifetime. The most important medal he deserves is for his love of family, eg: children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Included in his family are his family on the ball field, ice, badminton courts and the river. You loved Harvey and he loved you. Thank you to those who helped Harvey in his 4 years of illness, eg: staff of the Fraser Canyon / Surrey, Abbotsford cancer clinic, family and friends. Special thanks to Dr. Green, Murakami clinic, Lori Epp, Adrian Angus, Bruce (Spider) McDonald, and Seabird Island band for the special attention you gave Harvey.
