Peacefully with family by his side, at Victoria Hospital, on Saturday, February 27, 2021, Stephen Harvey passed away in his 73rd year. Beloved partner of Cindy Lusk. Loving father of Paul Harvey and his wife Peggy, and Katie Harvey and her partner Austin Ryan. Adored GrandDad of Emilyn, Kiera, Kenslee, and Brynlee. Also loved by his brother Raymond Harvey and his wife Jill; his sister Joan Clarke and her husband Tony, and his many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by brothers Kenneth and Colin; and his parents Ralph and Joan.
Those who knew Steve would say that he was a unique man who loved his daily routine of working hard for a living, getting his daily exercise, a shave in the shower and a couple of pints with good friends. He was a quiet man for the most part being very frugal to himself but always gave endlessly to others. He had a big heart and was filled for love and compassion to the people in his life. He will be remembered as a loving partner, loyal father, admired grandfather and good friend.
