Obituary of Harvey Granger
It is with great sadness we announce the peaceful passing of Harvey Granger on September 16, 2021 in his 86th year.
Harvey was the beloved husband of Kathleen Granger (Fishleigh) for over 63 years; father to Kevin (Penny), Warren (Joanne) and Corrie, predeceased in 2017 (Anne); grandfather to Brittany (Adam), Stephanie, Ryan, Courtney, Jordan, Jeremy, Emily and Alison; and great-grandfather to Jackson. Also loved by his many siblings, nephews and nieces, cousins and close friends. Fondly remembered by Doug, Laurie, Sydney, Zachery and Brenda Granger.
Harvey held many roles throughout his life beyond just husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He was a mechanic, working in the trade for a number of years before being asked to train others as a teacher. He spent his summers travelling and/or fishing. Harvey was a 20-year veteran of the Arva volunteer fire department, rising to the level of co-deputy chief, a dedicated and active 50-year member of the Shriners, including organizing pop can collections and proudly driving the “vehicle” he constructed for the Hillbilly unit, as well as a member of the Kilwinning Masonic Lodge No 64 A.F. & A.M. in London. He lived to serve, and built a legacy of volunteerism and sharing in his family.
