Most of my memories of Harvey involved eating amazing food around a table with my cousins. So much conversation and laughter. But my favourite memory is when he explained to me the intricacies of the many Coen brother movies and specifically Fargo. And then Harvey’s laughter when I told him that I tried to watch it with my parents.

Cindy Stoik

I was one lucky girl to have Harvey as an uncle. He was a great role model and showed me throughout the years how to be positive, live each day to the fullest and how to be kind and generous with his time. He was the MC at our wedding, and he made the day that much more special for us. He was so open in the deep love he had for his wife and family. He also taught very important things such as Princess Bride (watching the movie for the first time on the blue and white striped sofa at their house first house), how to have dry wit and humor and was a great example of how to not remove snow from a roof in winter. He will be forever remembered and cherished as he was a person in my life who continues to inspire me to live every day to its fullest and to live life as a precious gift.

Harvey. for the years God gave, you were the brightest light and encouragement to others. You were bold with your gifts which our Lord will reward you for. We will pray for strength for Joyce and your entire family. No more pain for you my friend. Love you and can’t wait to sing bluegrass together with your clear strong voice for Jesus in eternity.

You will be missed you were a good husband, father grandfather family man and friend. I wish I would have had more time to know you. Always in our thoughts


Miriam Seifert

I keep thinking about how I always took the seat at the table next to Uncle Harvey at our family dinners at grandma and grandpa’s house when I was in Jr. High. He was a great uncle and role model. I loved him very much. I am so sad to be so far away at this time and am thankful that we can join you online to grieve together.

Adrienne and family,

I am sorry to hear about the passing of your dad. I will remember your dad by his humour, his love to teach (his children and students), his love for music and his homemade French fries. He was so intentional about spending time with you and Lucas, whether reading a story (with all the perfect character voices), or teaching you about all things music, or laughing alongside you while watching The Simpsons. These moments of intentionality have caused ripples in friendships (like mine), and your dad will truly continue to live on in the people that knew and loved him.

I hope he is reading Lord of the Rings in heaven. Thinking of you all today. Sending love and prayers.

Connie Thiessen

Rachel Sitko

My deepest sympathy to you Joyce and family. It has been a privilege to know and interact with Harvey over the years of your marriage and raising of your family. Harvey radiated kindness, love and joy. When I think of Harvey,
Galatians 5:22 comes to mind. His life truly displayed the fruit of the spirit of Christ. He had such a great sense of humour and insightful perspective on many things we discussed.
Joyce, together you have been an inspiration. You are loved by many who hold you in our prayers knowing God will guide and keep you always in His care. I will be with you in spirit on the day of tribute and remembrance. Love, Aunt Rachel

Ginger Hallgren

Joyce and family, we are so very sorry for your loss. Harv was such a bright light. Everything about him exuded kindness and gentleness. He always had a smile and a kind word. Always ready to help. Always had such a quick wit. It was an honor to have known him. Much love always, Gord and Ginger

Claire (Thiessen) Penner

I have fond memories of my cousin, Harvey. I remember Harvey way back to Grandma Thiessen’s living room when the family would come to visit in Coaldale. Harvey was a good man, and James and I send our love and pray for God’s comfort for all of you.

Elaine Domning

Please accept my condolences in this time of sorrow. May God grant you strength , comfort and peace. I have fond memories of your family at Steele Heights Baptist Church and Harvey making music and being involved with drama. Blessings to you all.

Robin and Elisa Gereluk

Harv was a bright light, always. His attitude transcended the situation around him or the condition he was in. He always saw the best in people and as importantly told those around him of there positive traits. I will always remember him fondly.

Uncle Harvey taught me the first cords I ever learned on a guitar when I was young, and I remember spending that whole visit in his studio practicing. Several years later he came for a visit to my apartment and picked up my guitar only to find that I had no cable for my new amp. So he took me out and bought me the nicest cable in the store. All of the memories I have of Uncle Harvey are of the kindest, most generous, loving, guy you’d ever know. His humour always put a smile on everyone’s face, and every room he walked into just lit up. He will be missed by everyone who ever met him. Until we meet again, my glass is raised to you sir.
