HARVEY, Francis (Fran) Elliott

June 21, 1942 – Edmonton, Alberta
May 11, 2018– Calgary, Alberta

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our father and friend, Francis (Fran) Elliott Harvey, on May 11, 2018 at the age of 75 years.

Fran was born on June 21, 1942 in Edmonton, AB to Raymond and Martha Harvey. He grew up there and then moved to Manitoba where he worked for a moving company and started his family. He returned to Alberta after a few years, and eventually settled in Calgary, later dividing his time between Calgary and Kelowna.

Fran is survived by his three children, Michael Harvey, Jennifer Dekker (Terry), Shannon Costella; and his four beautiful granddaughters, Dalyn and Danielle Dekker, and Amelia and Sadie Costella. He was predeceased by his mother and father, Martha and Raymond, his brother Jerry, and his sister Charlene, all of whom we know are lovingly welcoming his return to the family.

Fran also had a special place in his heart for the Walker family of Calgary, with whom he had a very close and remarkable friendship for more than thirty years: Carole (Eric), Gavin (Bluebird), and Colleen. Carole and Fran were co-founders of Great Northern Data Supplies in 1985, which they built into a successful business and operated until their retirements. Everyone who knew Fran well will remember his off-colour sense of humour and his love of the Okanagan, Judge Judy, and Dilly Bars.

There will be no memorial service at this time. A private service will be held later in the summer in Kelowna. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to Diabetes Canada, 220, 6223 – 2nd Street S.E., Calgary, AB T2H 1J5 Telephone: (403) 266-0620, ext. 1112, www.diabetes.ca.

Weep Not For Me

Weep not for me though I have gone
Into that gentle night,
Grieve if you will, but not for long
Upon my soul’s sweet flight.
I am at peace, my soul’s at rest,
There is no need for tears.
For with your love I was so blessed
For all those many years.
There is no pain, I suffer not,
The fear is now all gone.
Put now these things out of your thoughts,
In your memory I live on.
Remember not my fight for breath,
Remember not the strife,
Please do not dwell upon my death
But celebrate my life.

In living memory of Fran Harvey, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Fish Creek, 14441 Bannister Road S.E., Calgary, AB, T2X 3J3, Telephone: 403-256-9575.

    So sad about Fran’s passing. We had such good laughs and as kids had good fun in the huge backyard of the Harvey house in the Highlands in Edmonton. Plus we enjoyed spending holidays with all the cousins at Grandma & Grandpa Haire’s in Viking.

    With sincere condolences to Fran’s family, Carole and all Fran’s loved ones. My sympathies to you.

    Lorraine Morrow, cousin
