OBITUARY

Eric Joseph Harvey

May 26, 1974January 4, 2019

Eric Joseph Harvey went to be with his Lord January 4, 2019. He passed away peacefully surrounded by his family. Eric is preceded in death by his grandmother, Lillian Finke, grandparents Albert and Rowana Harvey, and his aunt Tootsie. Eric is survived by his best friend, and love of his life, Jamie Burnaman Harvey, wife of 26 years, his two sons, Payton Joseph and Tanner James Harvey, his brother Tim Harvey, sister-in- law Rebecca Harvey, three nieces Grace, Maelin and Eva Harvey, mother Pat Harvey Kirspel and stepfather Larry Kirspel, father Francis Harvey, aunt Betty, aunt Belinda, a cousin Glen, father-in-law Bob Burnaman, mother-in-law Patty Burnaman, sister-in-law Tara Burnaman, along with numerous cousins, and family members.

Eric had a passion for cooking, gardening, hunting, fishing, laughing and making others laugh. His greatest passion was being a family man; a husband that adored “his Jamie” and a proud father of Payton and Tanner. His other best friend is his brother, Tim, who he spoke to several times a day.

Eric never met a stranger, and enjoyed his life to the fullest. He leaves our hearts full of happiness, love and laughter.

Pat, I am so sorry for your loss. I know that I cannot imagine the tremendous amount of hurt in losing a child. I know the emptiness that remains in my heart today from losing Charmaine, I don't think I'll ever get over the loss. My prayers are with you and Eric's family. May God Bless you all and hold you in the comfort of his arms.

Words cannot express the size of the loss that Jamie, Payton and Tanner are experiencing with the passing of Eric. He was loved by so many and has always been the number one priority for his family. He lived large and is leaving just as large of a void. He leaves us all with so many laughs and stories. Eric Harvey leaves a legacy that stretches beyond his years.

Thank you Eric for loving my sister and rasing such good men in Payton and Tanner. We are so blessed. There’s no doubt they will continue to make you proud. It doesn’t feel real that you aren’t here anymore. We would all give anything to hear that laugh again. We will miss you and take care of Jamie, Payton and Tanner. You have an army that has already started to rally and that just speaks to the man you are. You would be humbled by the love that is surrounding your family. Thank you for creating those bonds. I love you, (sista in law ;)
