Harvey left home and moved to Churchill Manitoba in 1966 where he worked in a garage for a couple of years. He then went to work for the Department of Public Works. When DPW phased out he went to work for Transport Canada at the Churchill airport in August 1971.
After their son Owen was born in 1979 Harvey decided to apply for a transfer which took him and his family to Fort St. John BC for a brief 9 months, then transferred to Whitehorse in June of 1981.
Harvey enjoyed his job with airports until his retirement in January of 2004. He continued with the airport going back every fall October - March then truly retired in 2009.
Harvey enjoyed fishing, hunting, boating, skidooing and spending time with his family.
Rest in peace.
