September 21, 1934 - October 24, 2012
With much sadness the family of Harvey Owen Klassen announces his passing. Born in Flin Flon, Manitoba and raised in Abbotsford, Harvey met his wife, Pauline, while studying Mechanical Engineering at UBC, class of 1959. Life took them throughout Canada and the US before settling in North Vancouver in 1969. In 1970 Harvey began his career with BC Hydro. A devoted husband and father, Harvey dedicated his life to providing for his family and raising his four sons. Harvey was a pioneer in computer programming, and passed onto his sons his love of the outdoors, automobiles, music, chocolate, and animals. Predeceased by his sister Betty Anne Ross, he is survived and very much missed by his wife Pauline and their sons and families Michael and Kelly (Cassidy, Michaela and Quinn), David and Beth (Candace, Bayden, Sebastian and Darian), Peter, and Stephen and Marie (Tristan and Jhili). A celebration of his life will take place at Highlands United Church at 3255 Edgemont Blvd., North Vancouver, B.C. on Saturday, November 17, 2012 at 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the charity of your choice would be greatly appreciated.
