Harvey was born in Innisfail on March 31, 1939. He had a very unique life. He enjoyed working on cars, going to auctions and taking care of his farm animals. In our hearts he will always be loved and remembered every day. Harvey’s devotion to his children never wavered, he didn’t know the word ‘no’. His family knew him as a kind and mild mannered man. Harvey was a very sports oriented man and loved to ride his bike. His love of family was always first and foremost. One will never find a finer man.
