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.

  5. I remember meeting Harvey the first time I saw newborns Hannah and Sarah when they were only a week old. Harvey beamed with happiness and you could tell how much he loved his family over the years. During this very sad time, I hope you can reflect on all your wonderful memories and the love that he felt for you all. He was one of a kind and I feel privileged to have known him. Always thinking of you all!
