Rana and Steven

We are so sorry for your loss. When we moved into your neighborhood on Promenade Crescent in Royal Bay, Harvey was one of the first neighbours we met. He invited us over to your home where we enjoyed some of Harvey’s home made wine. We also were invited over for an awesome dinner. We continued over time to enjoy the odd glass of wine together.

Harvey was kind, generous, hospitable and always had a smile on his face. He was proud of his family and his home. We also know he was a fighter and he fought a good race.

Rest In Peace Harvey, may your shining light flow down on Rana and Steven who are forever in your heart.

Sincere condolences
Karen & Ross Thorstad

Today I mourn the passing of my dear friend and fellow Military Police Officer!
Harvey and I served together at Special Investigation Unit Edmonton. A true professional , respected by his superiors and fellow co-workers, Harvey proved himself to be a a most capable NCO and Special Investigator.
Harvey loved to socialize celebrating Section gatherings, birthdays, holidays, etc. Susan and I were most fortunate to enjoy Harvey and Rana's company and friendship during our time together in Edmonton.
Those who knew Harvey are aware of his excellent wine making skills, He taught me and turned me into a home brewer however he discovered I was drinking the wine well before its due date. Great times were always had by all. When I visited Victoria, Harvey would always open his home to me enjoying a meal with his family....always a most gracious host.

Harvey, we will always remember you.
Rest in Peace my Friend

Rana and Steven, our sincerest condolences on the passing of Harvey

To Rana and family my condolences and sadness to hear of Harvey having passed. I had the honor to care for Harvey during his short stay at The Heights at Mount View. I will always remember fondly his grin and spirit while in a difficult time of his all too short life.

Rest In Peace my friend, no doubt you & Bob are being silly again in heaven together! Love & Sympathy for your beloved family❤️

Served with Harvey at CFB Lahr in the early eighties and he was one of those people that you never forgot for all of the right reasons. I remember him as being a fine young soldier/policeman, highly self-disciplined and motivated, one who strived to do his very best in each and every task assigned. His leadership skills ultimately led him to achieve the rank of Warrant Officer, qualities he had displayed early in his career. As his former Sgt-Maj I can attest to Harvey's outstanding qualities as I well remember him standing out amongst his peers early in his career. Rest in peace Soldier. We will Remember You!

I first met Harvey when he was in uniform at CFB Esq. We worked together on a few projects. He was a pleasure to work with even though the tasks weren't pleasant. His ability to see the good in everyone was astounding. Through the later years when he became a civilian our families shared many happy memories. He became someone who you could count on no matter the situation. He was a fantastic roll model to my boys and they will miss him immensely. There is so much good to be said about Harvey and not enough space to say it. Harvey you were loved and will be remembered. I hope when my time comes we can sit and remember the good old days.
