Honoured by Kim Quirt, Susan Harvey, and Rhonda Tiller
In recognition of 57 years of marriage (and still going strong!) we wish to dedicate this leaf to our parents, Bob and Lorraine Harvey, parents of Kim (Glen), Susan (Chris) and Rhonda (Jeff) and amazing grandparents to Robert and Troy.
Bob and Lorraine were high school sweethearts and have been such an inspiration to all of us. In the early years, Dad was a railroader and then worked many years as a police officer starting at the West Ferris Police Dept. until amalgamating with North Bay in 1968. Mom worked at home using her wonderful talent sewing and quilting skills. We are all so fortunate to have hand sewed quilts from many hours of stitching.
Dad worked until the symptoms of MS forced him to retire at 40. They have since spent winters in Florida and summers in North Bay. Our parents have had many hobbies and passions that continue to this day from sledding, sailing, camping to building and flying model airplanes, to picture and video productions. The glass is always half full!
Mom and Dad have been wonderful models to their grandchildren. They always have time to listen, help and support their hobbies and sports.
It is fitting that this Pergola is on the Waterfront because Mom and Dad grew up in North Bay and spent summers on Lake Nipissing at family cottages. Until recently, they had a family boat that spent many hours in Callander Bay. We spent hours at Animal Island and touring the lake.
Mom and Dad continue to be incredibly positive and fun!
