Harold Allan Harvey, known to friends and family as Al, passed peacefully on June 11, 2021 at Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre, Barrie, Ontario in his 91st year after a brief illness.
Allan is lovingly remembered by his wife of 62 years, Barbara (nee Sayers); his daughters, Loraine (Eric) Dean of Barrie, and Carol Harvey (Brian Colby) of Richmond Hill; and grandchildren Andrea (Bry) and Alexandra. Allan will also be fondly remembered by his sister, Verna (David, pre-deceased) Elliott; Sayers in-laws Allan (Gloria) and Ron (Bernice); and many nieces and nephews who carry wonderful memories of ‘Uncle Al’. Allan was pre-deceased by brothers Edward (Noreen), Gordon (Phyllis) and Herbert Harvey, and by Sayers in-laws William (Grace), Herbert (Ann) and Victor (Mary).
Al had been retired for 25 years from Public Utilities Scarborough. He and Barbara moved to Barrie in 2017 where they continued to enjoy their independence. The family is deeply grateful for the St. Elizabeth home care providers, particularly Sam; and the compassionate and exceptional care from family physician Dr. Matt Orava, and the many wonderful caregivers at RVH, particularly the surgical unit which provided compassionate end-of-life care to Allan and his family. If so desired, donations to Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre Foundation https://foundation.rvh.on.ca/in-memory-of/ would be appreciated.
