His grandchildren Joey (Kaitlyn), Valerie (Nathan), and great grandchild Madeline. He will be missed by many aunts, nieces and nephews. He was a special friend of Bill W.
Harvey had many passions and talents in his life. Family, traveling and spending countless hours camping at Bonanza Lake with family and friends. A busy man who was always on the go with any task he could think of. Harvey was an avid volunteer for many local organizations. A 30-year career at INCO, and always telling a joke or striking up a conversation.
