Harvey Donald Cornelius
November 30, 1934 – June 25, 2020
Harvey passed away at Tofield Long Term Care on Thursday, June 25, 2020 at the age of 85 years.
He will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Esther, of 59 years; children: Arlin (Linda) and Taunya (Bob); grandchildren: Charity, Erik, and Saige; sisters: Eileen Sutton and Gwen Kozack; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
He was predeceased by his loving and caring son, Kevin; sisters: Joy Kelm and Marilyn Howarth; and his parents: Bert and Florence.
Harvey was born at Dinant, Alberta. The family moved to the Spilstead area where later he met and married Esther in 1961. There they raised their two young sons until they moved to Richmond, BC in 1974 where they had their daughter Taunya two years later.
In 1978 they returned to the Tofield area to live on the Ringen homestead. Here is where Harvey built his forever home and finished raising his family. Harvey started his construction business and, his son, Arlin worked alongside him for more than 40 years. Harvey loved his work and one could argue that he never really retired, he just got tired.
Harvey was well known in the community as a kind and hard-working neighbour that always had time to visit or welcome friends and family to his home.
Harvey also loved his grandchildren and had a special bond with his granddaughter Saige.
Some of Harvey’s favorite past times included listening to live music, dancing, playing cards, snowmobiling, boating, camping and vacationing with his family.
Harvey will always be remembered for his genuine hospitality, his outgoing personality, his sincere interest in people of all ages and his ability to make a friend wherever he went.
An online memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m., Friday, July 3, 2020 via Zoom (On-line). Cremation has taken place. Memorial donations may be made to the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society.
