During the years Harvey contributed in a number of different community pursuits. He was involved in the B.C. Fish and Game Protective Association and the BC Rod and Gun Club. He was an avid sports fan who was instrumental in organizing football for kids starting in the 1950's. In the early 1960's the Minor Football program he and others organized was the largest of its kind in Canada. Harvey was one of the founders of the Gordon Sturtridge Football League (GSFL) on the North Shore. The league was named after Sturtridge who was a Canadian Football League all-star who had been killed in a plane crash on Mount Slesse after playing in the CFL All-Star game in Vancouver. The GSFL continues today and has introduced the game of football to thousands of kids over the years. Harvey wasn't content with being just an organizer.

In all his endeavors he was a true gentleman. He will always be remembered with love and admiration by his sons Brian and Kirk, his daughter-in-law Linda and his grandchildren Kristen, Glen and Katharine, and is reunited now with his beloved wife Helen and his grandson Jay who predeceased him. Both his grandsons Glen and Jay inherited and displayed Harvey's love and talent in the game of football.

Ernie served overseas in WWII for 5 1/2 years with the R.C.O.C. and was appointed a Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire for outstanding service. It was in England that he met and married Joan in 1943. Upon return to Canada he became a well respected manufacturers' representative for ladies fashions and for many years travelled by train and then later by car several times each year from B.C. to Manitoba. He made many wonderful acquaintances in every town and city on his route and maintained his high standard of personal contact for many years. His retirement years allowed him to devote his time to his family, to travel with Joan and to pursue his unquenchable interest in world history, particularly the two great World Wars. It was his warmth and interest in people of all ages and his obvious love of animals, above all for his dog Tiki, that attracted everyone to him. He will be missed by all who came in contact with him and his memory cherished by his family, especially his four granddaughters with whom he had a close, special relationship. Many thanks to Drs. M. Kates, A. Dodeck and D. Lee for their enduring care and to all of the staff at Lions Gate Hospital Emergency and Palliative Care.
