Harvey passed away peacefully with his loving family by his side at the Pembroke Regional Hospital in his 90th year. Harvey was an amazingly strong man who fought bravely through several illnesses.

Harvey devoted 40 years of his life working in the mines at Falconbridge and Inco. Harvey will be remembered for his great love of hunting which he passed along to his whole family.
