Obituary of Harvey John Weir
Harvey John Weir
June 14, 1932 ~ July 2, 2021
It is with great sadness that the family of Harvey John Weir announce his passing on July 2, 2021 in Henribourg, SK.
Harvey was born on the family farm in 1932 where he lived his entire life until passing on that very farm. He married his wife of 67 years, Vivian, in 1955. They would go on to have three children together: Alan, Lorna, and Sharon. Harvey’s first job, aside from farming, was building elevators, making only 90 cents per hour. He then went on to be a mechanic at Thompson Tractor, which sparked his interest in restoring old tractors. This became a lifetime passion for Harvey. He drove school bus for many years and would service them while students were in class. Harvey worked at the forest nursery for 19 years before finally retiring. During retirement, he would restore farm equipment and wood turn to keep himself busy.
Harvey is survived by his: wife, Vivian Weir; son, Alan (Wendy) Weir and their children, Christopher (Jackie) Weir, Kimberley (Jordan) Peterson, Bradley (Kaitlin) Weir and Sarah (Tanner) Weir; daughter, Lorna (Dennis) Betts and their children, Jennifer (Greg) Lazar, Dillan (Alana) Betts, and Jamie (Randy) Krinke; daughter, Sharon (Mike) Ginka and their daughter Kylie (Mark) Ginka ; eight great grandchildren, Lucas, Terrance, Kaylie, Matteus, Eliza, Jonathan, Audrey and Clover; his sister, Leona; and numerous other relatives and friends.
Harvey was predeceased by his: mother, Ann, and father, Harvey; brother, Bob; sister, Jean; and grandson, Kelly.
