HICKS, Harvey Hicks - August 2, 1939 – June 15, 2022
It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Harvey Hicks in his 83rd year at Lakeridge Health Bowmanville, June 15, 2022.
Harvey will be greatly missed by his lifelong partner of 59 years, Barbara and his 3 children, Jane (Stephen), Carolyn Stanbrook (Mike), David (Lisa), and grandchildren Lauren, Julia, Owen and Matthew.
Harvey was pre-deceased by his sister June Jupp.
As a graduate of Danforth Collegiate and Technical Institute in Toronto, Harvey’s studies took him to General Motors Institute (GMI) in Flint Michigan which began a career in the Automotive Industry that saw him travel often between Toronto and Michigan until his retirement in 2001.
The last 20 years presented many health hurdles, but no matter what news he received, Harvey tackled it head on with Barb.
Sincere gratitude to Lyndhurst Rehabilitation who helped Harvey get back on his feet again, to Princess Margaret Hospital – Myeloma Clinic who managed his multiple myeloma into remission and to Sunnybrook Odette Cancer Centre who worked their magic with his later bouts of cancer.
Also, to Bowmanville Lakeridge Hospital who ensured Harvey was comfortable in his last days.
Harvey will be fondly remembered for his quick-witted quiet side, his love of reading, sports, scotch and making wine.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Myeloma Canada, Toronto Rehabilitation Institute Lyndhurst Centre or Lakeridge Bowmanville Hospital Foundation.
Visitation will be held on Tuesday July 5th from 12 to 2 pm at Trinity United Church followed by a celebration of life at 2 pm. Reception to follow.
Arrangements entrusted with NORTHCUTT ELLIOTT FUNERAL HOME , Bowmanville.
