It is with deep sadness that we announce that Richard (Dick) Harvey passed away on October 11, 2022 at the age of 72.
Dick was an awesome husband, dad, grandpa and great grandpa, and has taken a large piece of our hearts with him.
Dick was the husband of Bonnie, whom he celebrated his 50th wedding anniversary with in May of 2022. He was the dad of Michelle (Kurt), Christina (Jeremy) and Jason. Dick was grandpa to Danika, Cheyenne, Kyle, Lucas, Xander and great-grandpa to Lucianna.
In his early years, Dick worked for CN, then as a gravel crusher operator. Dick worked at Cardeagar Ford in Roblin, where he spent 20 plus years as a mechanic, then advancing to service manager. At the age of 40, Dick was hired by the Office of the Fire Commissioner after many years of volunteer service with the Roblin Fire Department. Dick spent 35 plus years in emergency services as a volunteer, a course developer, a trainer, a teacher, and an investigator. He retired from the Office of the Fire Commissioner in March of 2019.
Hockey was a passion of Dick’s, having played goalie growing up in Saskatoon and then with the Roblin North Stars. He also spent many hours in the hockey rink coaching youth and senior hockey. Dick was a long-time season ticket holder for the Brandon Wheat Kings. In 2019, Dick and his midget hockey team, the 1967 Saskatoon Centennials, were inducted into the Ted Knight Saskatchewan Hockey Hall of Fame for representing Saskatchewan at Canada’s Centennial Cup.
Dick was a true outdoor enthusiast. He loved to hunt, fish, camp, paddleboard and enjoyed spending time in the Duck Mountains. Dick, and his dog Reese, were inseparable, whether camping, fishing or just hanging out.
Dick enjoyed sharing time and stories of his many adventures, with family and friends. When he retired, he took up wood working, creating outdoor games. He enjoyed working on complex Lego sets, building VW vans and Beetles. Dick was also an avid coin collector for many years. He was always available to help out with renovation projects, vehicle issues, random questions, research and advice.
Dick's family will be hosting a celebration of Dick's life on Saturday, June 17th at 3:00 P.M. from their home at 757 Brentwood, Brandon, Manitoba.
Donations can be made to St. Bonifice Hospital Foundation Cardiac Care in memory of Dick.
