Arthur HARVEY

HARVEY, Arthur The world lost a great man on the 21st of March 2014. Arthur Harvey will be missed dearly by his wife, Lorna, his daughters, Brenda (Rick) and Jill (Robert), his grandkids, Alison (Stuart), Jill (Jim), Kevin and Sam, his great-grandkids, Ella and Halle and respective family. He was predeceased by his son, Artie, in 1969. He truly was the rock of the family and felt it his business to worry about us all. He was most happy when hard at work in the woods and surrounded by his animals. He had an amazing green thumb, a great sense of humor, and a mischievous spirit. He instilled in his family a deep respect for nature and a love for home grown veggies. He loved hockey and often reminisced about his boyhood pastime impressing his grandkids with his skating and skipping abilities. Art was born Frederick Arthur Leslie Harvey, August 9, 1933 to Mary and Fred Harvey in Wolfville, Novia Scotia. He was one of 10 in a tight knit family and kept them all on their toes! Art joined the air force in 1954 and after his father challenged his ability to become an aero engine technician that is exactly what he did. His career took him traversing the globe on the Hercules aircraft that he loved so much, and he was to become a much-respected Master Warrant Officer who chose to keep his family in the Comox Valley instead of taking his promotion to Chief Warrant Officer. In later years following a bout of cancer and the onset of COPD he found great joy in his family, his animals and his weekly wheelchair walks around the airpark, whilst always dreaming about chopping firewood for his daughter. You are gone Art but never forgotten and you will remain in our hearts forever. A service will be held on Monday March 31st, 2014 at the Comox Pentecostal Church at 1 pm. In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to the Comox Valley S.P.C.A, M.A.R.S., or Dawn to Dawn in Art's name. The family wishes to thank Dr. Daws for her excellent and compassionate care.
