Date of Passing: May 05, 2021Send Flowers to the Family Offer Condolences or Memory
December 14, 1931 - May 5, 2021
He was predeceased by his wife Irene Marriott; parents, Tom and Lil Marriott; sister Isabel Palmer; brother-in-law Reg Palmer and nephew David Palmer.
He leaves to lovingly remember him his daughter and son-in-law Sandra Marriott-Silver and Dave Silver; son and daughter-in-law Jim Marriott and Karen Marriott; grandchildren, Graham (Amanda), Kaitlyn (Daniel), Brent, and Camille (Ty). Also left to mourn are his nephew Randy Palmer (Marianne); niece Liz Palmer (Gary) (late nephews wife) Leona Palmer; cousin Margaret Backer and family. Also left to remember him are his Rusty zipper club friends and many other friends who he loved to get together with to play golf, cross country ski, rollerblade or just sit and talk with.
Harvey was born in St. Rose du Lac with the family moving on to Brandon and then in to Winnipeg where he grew up and lived in St. James until retiring from a long career as an accountant for the Canada Revenue Agency. He and Irene moved out to Clandeboye to live the country life and did so for many years until his dementia was too much for her to manage and she sadly had to place him in a personal care home where he lived out the rest of his life.
He was a devoted, loving and generous son, husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend, who will be missed by all who knew him.
We would like to thank all of the staff at Extendicare Red River Place for their care and compassion looking after him for the last 16 months.

Condolences may be left on his tribute wall at
Gilbart Funeral Home, Selkirk
in care of arrangements.

Condolences & Memories (3 entries)
Sandra and Jim: Please accept our sympathies and condolences to you and your families in the passing of your father. We had a many great times with Harvey and Irene. Many trips to other countries and memories we shall treasure forever. The numerous dinners at the Marriott's and the laughs that kept us in stitches many days later. Skiing trips to Sunshine and local cross country skiing at Clandeboye. We shall never forget you Harvey and Irene! You enriched our lives and we are sure those lives of other acquaintances and friends. The suggestion to Irene to buy Harvey a birthday gift from a certain bookstore in Limerick, Ireland was not really mine... I don't think. Rest in peace together Harvey and Irene! - Posted by: Judy and Dave Rannard (Friend) on: May 20, 2021
Jim & Karen & Family So very sorry to hear about your Dad's passing. My Deepest sympathy Nadia Lind - Posted by: Nadia Lind (Family) on: May 18, 2021
I was fortunate to have worked alongside Harvey in the same audit group for a few years. He was just such a nice man, quiet and respectful but with a great sense of humour. He shared advice - on gardening- eg. Braid your onion tails to hang them in the basement, and on golfing. One evening on a road trip on a golf course, he explained very seriously what I could improve - “Judy, you know what you’re doing wrong, ... you’re standing too close to the ball... ... after you hit it!” I have only good memories of Harvey. My condolences to his family. - Posted by: Judy Cormier (Co-worker) on: May 18, 2021
