Dear Valerie, Rick, Todd and family,
So sorry to hear of Harvey's passing, he was a wonderful doctor for our family. His calm demeanor and good counsel was much appreciated, not only at medical appointments and baby deliveries, but also in working with him at parish council. I always enjoyed our visits, and I feel we were blessed to have Harvey and you as part of our community for so many years.

Very sorry to hear about Havey`s passing. I was one of his classmates in high school in Kindersley. Although we weren.t close friends at the time, we were rivals in track and field, and shot the odd game of pool when he wasn.t busy studying. He and John Hooge, who also became a doctor spent a lot of time together. I believe that Johns dad, Dr. Hooge, was a great influence on his choice of a profession. We all graduated together and went our separate ways. Harvey returned to Kindersley and became a very well respected Doctor to many citizens of the community. My sister-law Penny Grocholski was one of his patients who got wonderful help from him. Until her death she wished he was still there looking after her needs. I only visited him once while he lived in Regina but will always remember him as a very positive person and high school friend and opponent in sports that he competed in. Rest in peace and may your family know that he will be remembered with love and respect especiallv by all those who he treated over the years.
