On behalf of the Edmonton Mopar Club - I would like to express our deepest condolences to Harvey's family. Our thoughts are with you during this difficult time.

Harvey was a highly respected member of the local Mopar and drag racing communities. He was also instrumental in the growth and success of the Edmonton Mopar Club in the early years.

Most of all - Harvey was a great person who was always willing to help someone in need. He was a friend to many people in the club and will be deeply missed.

Dear Pahl Family, our family (on and off the racetrack) friendship has extended past over thirty years. We feel the sorrow in our hearts for each one of you. I treasure his smile, and the pride he had in James' accomplishments on the racetrack or curling rink. James when you were a young track brat you shadowed your dad and the last several years it was your dad at your side proudly shadowing you. I know your memories will be deeply treasured in your family's heart. Lean on all those that love you.

Our deepest sympathy to you Joanne, Shannon, Angie, James and Rachel and families and friends.

Our love; Barry, April, Jonathan, Vanessa, Austin Chykerda

Joanne, james and Pahl family. You loving husband, father and grandfather has left his mark on many people over the years. Our dearest memory of Harvey is "Saskatoon Pie", when he and James came down to Leduc to register for the Mopar Meets in Red Deer and thankfully our IGA always had fresh Saskatoon pie for me. Leonel will fondly remember his expertise on the 6 pack carbs and the matching GTX's.

Harvey was a great person and he helped me out many times. (He also threw me under the bus a lot at the safety meetings at work.) I'll miss him and I'll have a drink for him!

Joanne, Shannon, James and Angela, My thoughts are with you at this time of loss. Harvey was the fix it guy on the street. If dad could not do it then we were sent to Harvey. It was so neat as a child to hear that race car fire up on friday night or sat before another race. Growing up I always remember Harvey bent over a car in the garage. His man cave!! He will be missed.

I am sorry to hear about Harvey's passing. He was one of the cousins I did not see as often as I should have. Any visits we did have impressed me with Harvey's sense of humour and interest in others. I am thinking of you in your time of loss.
