OBITUARY

Harvey George Jamieson

10 September, 194622 July, 2020

Harvey “Tub” George Jamieson, 73, peacefully passed away on July 22, 2020 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. “Tub” will be dearly missed.

Harvey was born on September 10, 1946, in the small town of McAuley, Manitoba, the youngest child to Bea and Gregor Jamieson. Harvey was raised, along with his four older siblings, on their family farm outside of McAuley. “Tub” played hockey and baseball alongside working on the farm. He attended High School in Virden, Manitoba where he met Cheryl Metcalf and they began dating. They wed on July 13th, 1968 in Virden surrounded by their closest family and friends.

Once married, Tub and Cheryl settled in on the family farm for a few years. It was here that they welcomed their first daughter, Jennifer Joelle “Jay”, married to Jon Magarrell. After her birth they decided to relocate to the “big city” of Winnipeg. It was here they welcomed their second daughter, Carla Dawn, married to Kevin Hahn. With a short move to Morden, Winnipeg ultimately became their home where he worked in the Feed industry and raised their family. They bought a brand new home in 1979 in Winnpeg’s south end and they made this their cherished family home for over 38 years. Harvey could always be seen coaching his girls baseball, bike riding with them, or driving them to figure skating lessons all over the city. Summers were spent swimming in the backyard pool and taking family vacations.

In 2000, Harvey became a proud Grandfather. Jay and Jon welcomed Jarret and then Kiera, Brett and Casey Magarrell. In 2008, while living in New York, Carla welcomed Dylan and Krys Love, with their father Vincent Love. Harvey loved and savored watching and playing with all his grandchildren. He could always be found standing on the sidelines watching and cheering at their games, always praising their hard work. He loved to chat with everyone and he will be missed being seen at his grandkids events. Even from afar, Harvey loved to hear all about the kids and their milestones. He was a proud Grandfather. They will miss “silly or little” Grandpa immensely but they will always remember his smile, his unwavering love and his positive nature.

Over the years, “Harv” as many called him, always made time for his family and friends. He loved nothing more than to spend time, catch up, laugh and maybe do a little dancing. As a family we have treasured memories of Christmas’ together and gatherings at our family home. He will be greatly missed by his siblings and their families. His oldest brother, Addie and wife Denise Jamieson of Innisfail, AB; Lorne “Buck” and his late wife, Marge Jamieson of Saskatoon, SK; Phyllis “Sis” and her late husband, Ken Crossen of Brandon, MB; and Garry and wife Karien Jamieson of Kelowna, B.C. Also, Cheryl’s brother, Kevin and Wendy Metcalf and family of Calgary, AB, with whom we share many fond memories together. Harvey will also leave behind many extended family and friends whom he cherished, admired and would do absolutely anything for. He was grateful for his friends and those who would call him up to get together or simply to catch up. Harvey had a dedicated career in Sales, for years with Shur-Gain and then with East Man Feeds where he developed many friendships to which was his proudest professional achievement.

Harvey asked that in lieu of flowers and a funeral if one wished to honor him, his life and friendship to do so by making a donation to Kidsport Manitoba. Donations allow for all children to have an opportunity to play sports and be a part of a team, which our Dad believed is life changing. Sports and his children and grandchildren were his passion.

Harvey, as a devoted husband, father, grandfather, sibling and friend you will be forever missed and always remembered. In honor of your love of music and dancing…. You decorated our lives, and, one day, we’ll accomp’ny you, up where the rivers meet the sounding sea, you’re high above me now, you’re wild and free. Until then, we’ll sip a cold Coke and enjoy a Caramilk bar. When we all get together Dad, we will put on some Bob Seger and dance to some Old Time Rock and Roll. You are loved and we are forever grateful you touched our lives. Take it easy Dad, as the Eagles sing it!!

My heart goes out to all of you. I was blessed with the opportunity to get to know and love all of the Jamieson family, but Harvey holds a very special place in my heart. He was an incredible father and family man; always supportive, loving and positive, and will go down in history as one of the best Dads out there! Love you all and am thinking of you during this difficult time. ❤️

So sorry to hear about Harvey's passing. My condolences to Cheryl, Carla and the rest of the family. We went to a lot of parties at the Jamieson's in high school and Harv was always there having a great time. He was a really generous person and a gem of a guy.

I knew Harvey through my close friendship with Kevin and back in my Winnipeg days I would run into Harvey occasionally. Great guy!

My deepest and sincere condolences to Cheryl, Kevin and families at this very sad time. Harvey (Tub) was always a great guy to run into, always had a laugh and enjoyed a good story. I first met Harvey in the early 60's when he and Wayne Pool joined our Virden Huskey's hockey club, and they both made a big impact to our team. Not only on the ice but that team was very closely knit and Harvey fit right in with our Virden social life, and we even let him take out one of your pretest Virden gals. Harvey was a great guy and I am honoured to have had the opportunity to know him, share many laughs and spend some time with him. He will be sadly missed by so many.

One thing I could always count on Sept. 8th, (my birthday), was a phone call from Harvey. We would just have a good chat and catch up on the news.

I will miss those chats my friend.

Condolences to Cheryl and the family.

Sincerely,

We always enjoyed talking with Tub at all the family gatherings. I have attached a picture of three first cousins enjoying a wonderful day at the family reunion on Aug 4, 1988.
