Harvey Raymond Chute died peacefully on September 25, 2015 with family by his side.
He was born, September 16, 1962 in Lytton, British Columbia. He was the third child and the first son of Joe and Peggy Chute.
Harvey graduated from Kumsheen Secondary School in Lytton, BC and Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, BC. He worked during many summers as a rafting guide in Lytton. He was employed for five years with Systemhouse out of Vancouver, BC and was employed for 24 years with what is now Northrop Grumman, Inc in their State and Local Health and Human Services Division.
Harvey had many hobbies and interests and loved to learn new things. Some of the things he enjoyed were: camping, hiking, guitar, snowboarding, laughing, woodworking, photography, travel, music and writing. He fulfilled a life-long dream of writing a book --- a young adult historical novel, "Stone and Silt" set in the region where he grew up. One of his favorite things is the Kindle forum, that he created for Kindle users and authors. It is currently the largest independent Kindle user forum on the web.
He loved being with his family and was so proud of all three of his daughters. Some of his most valued times were simply spending time with those he loved.
Harvey is survived by his wife of nineteen years, Carrie Hall Chute; daughters Celeste (Anthony) Fiorillo, Sarah Chute and Hannah Chute... His parents, Joe and Peggy Chute; sisters, Heather (Alan) Johnson, Lyn (Dennis) Warmerdam; brothers, Ross (Jennifer) Chute, Roger (Suzanne Paterson) Chute, numerous nieces and nephews, cousins, and family on both sides who love him very much.
There will be a Memorial Service on Sunday, October 11th at First Presbyterian Church, 1031 N Garden St, at 4:00pm. Memorials may be made to First Presbyterian Church.

Hi Carrie, Yes, I was at the service. I did not get a chance to hug your neck - but you and your family had a wonderful service for Harvey's memorial. I felt honored to be included, and especially loved the slide show. It seemed especially poignant and perfect, that Harv had done his own slide show! Love to you, your family, and all your friends from near and far.
