Harvey Chute

September 16, 1962 - September 25, 2015


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, KBoards.com 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.

    Harvey was a wonderful, talented, generous man. He will be missed by thousands all over the world.
    I am proud to have known him.

  3. Edward Lorn says:

    Harvey likely never knew what an inspiration he was for me. I almost quit publishing at one point, but a few kind words from him helped me press on. We did not talk often, in fact, we probably never had more than three conversations total, but his character made an impact on me.
    My sincerest condolences to his family and friends.


  4. Roger Gillen says:

    I went to school in Lytton with Harvey and remember him as an amiable and mature fellow with a sharp mind and good sense of humour. My sincere condolences.

  5. Hi Carrie,
    My name is Michelle Collin. My brother Roger and I lived in Lytton for three years when we were younger and knew the Chute family very well. If our parents didn’t know where we were, they knew to look there!
    Roger and Harvey were good buddies and we both spent lots of time in their basement building lego and putting on plays that Heather would usually direct. Other times we would play find the flag of have water fights in the yard. I want you to know that we both have very fond memories of Harvey and the whole family.
    I am very sad to hear of the passing of Harvey and I wanted to express my condolences to you and your family and also to Joe, Peggy, Lyn, Heather, Ross and Roger.
    From my heart to yours.
    Most sincerely,
    Calgary, AB
