October 5, 1944 – May 4, 2014
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Harvey Kohls at the Rosedale Hospice, following valiant struggles with Lymphoma and the devastating after-effects of intense treatments.
After being raised in Golden Prairie, Saskatchewan, Harvey attended the University of Calgary. Following a successful career as an educator and administrator, he retired from the Calgary Board of Education in 1999. It was in retirement that Harvey found joy in outdoor pursuits such as gardening and Slo-Pitch, while continuing to be an avid curler.
Harvey will be deeply missed by his loving wife Winni, his son Justin Kohls; his step-sons Ryan Stricker, Daryl (Tara) Stricker and Sean Stricker (Kelley); as well as his dear grandson Blake. Also surviving Harvey are his brothers Alfred (Doreen) Kohls and Ray (Jeanette) Kohls, and his sister Marlene (John) McKnight, as well as many nieces, nephews, in-laws, and other extended family members. Harvey was predeceased by his first wife Joanne, his brother Leonard, sister-in-law Carol, and his parents, David and Lydia Kohls.
Memorial Service will be held at Westminster Presbyterian Church (290 Edgepark Blvd. N.W.) on Friday, May 9, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. If desired, memorial donation may be made to Wellspring Calgary or Canadian Blood Services. The family wishes to thank all the anonymous blood donors who provided hope for recovery in Harvey’s final years.
