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.

    October 1, 2015Dear Carrie and family,
    I am so sorry to read about Harvey’s passing away. I, of course, have never met Harvey or you all; however, I could tell from Carrie’s log and Facebook comments that he was a cool person, devoted husband, and an awesome father. There are no words I can use right now to ease your pain, but I pray that his release from pain will give you some comfort during this sad time. May God bless and comfort you today and the days to come.

  2. Dear Carrie, Celeste, Hannah, and Sarah:We love you all and are thinking of you this weekend as you celebrate the life of a truly Godly, loving husband and father, a man of many talents and interests. We had the pleasure of having only 2 brief encounters with Harvey but that is all it took to see the loving, compassionate, and caring man that he was.
    May the light of his love for you and the immeasurable love of our caring God surround you moment by moment and day by day in the months to come.
    God’s great blessings, comfort, and strength on each of you.
    All Our Love, Jim, Leslie, and Emily Tarvin

  3. Please accept my most sincere condolences in your family’s loss. I will always remember Harvey as a soft spoken articulate person. I truly appreciate having known him. He recently reminded me where my “roots” were when he did the thread about Lytton. When you move as a child you sometimes loose that connection…Harvey brought me back to my home.

    My condolences, love and hugs go out to all family and friends of Harvey. We grew up in the same town but had more of a connection on face book. I enjoyed the game that he started on face book that started out by say “You know your from Lytton when?”. Some of the greatest stories came out of that post. I thought at the time it should be made into a book. I know this must be one of the hardest times anyone can ever go through but in time whne you look back I hope this makes you smile at the thought.

    Much love and hugs sent.
