On Sunday, January 26, 2020, John Stephen Harvey, loving father, grandfather, great grandfather, uncle, brother and friend, passed away at age 76.

John was born on January 24, 1944 in Rawtenstall, Lancashire, England to John and Edith (Emsley) Harvey. He was the youngest of 5 children. He was a natural salesman and spent most of his career selling or managing those who sold. On June 26, 1965, he married Maureen. Together they raised their family, Cindy Roy (Arthur) and Jason (Georgeanna Shafir).

John had a great love for his family and friends. He was proud of his children and their accomplishments. He adored his grandchildren Alissa (Gordie Plesman), Alanna (Sam Utas), Aaron Roy (Brittany) and his precious great grandchildren, Genevieve and Jake Roy. He enjoyed time spent with family at Turtle Lake. He was an avid sports fan and did not miss an Oiler game. He was known for his quick wit, his infectious smile, and his compassionate, but mischievous spirit.

His father, John and his mother, Edith, preceded John. He leaves his children, Cindy, Jason and their families, his devoted friend Maxine Charlton and her family, his first wife Maureen Harvey (Payne) and his siblings Kay (Bob) Thompson, Mavis (Jack) Kent, Freda (Len) Muffin and Duncan, and numerous nieces and nephews.

  1. My thoughts, prayers and love are with you. I spoke to your father just two weeks ago as I am going to be in Edmonton and hoped we could have a five-year reunion lunch! I called twice since and knew he was not well as he didn’t sound well on the first call. May John rest in peace and may his family and friends be blessed with knowing he is at peace. We all have wonderful memories to remember him by. I have known him since I was sixteen, as long time friend. John, we will miss you! May God Bless you and your family who went before you. I will never forget the love of your dear Mom and Dad. Rest well, dear friend, in the arms of Jesus.
