Raymond Harvey Seitz of Medicine Hat, Alta. passed away peacefully on Sunday, December 6, 2020 at the age of 90 years, with his beloved wife and daughter by his side. Harvey will be lovingly remembered by his wife Lorna Seitz (Gehring); son, Corwin (Janice) Seitz; daughter, Marcella (Timothy) Cundy; daughter-in-law, Theresa Seitz; his grandchildren, JC (Jessie) Seitz, Karissa (Beau) Noble, Brittany (Shayne) Cockerill, Carmen Cundy; and great-grandchildren, Sloane, Christian, Nash, Bauer, and Carlee. He will also be remembered by his brother, Laverne (Yvonne) Seitz; and sisters, Grace (Wayne) Buss and Ruth (Roger) Heidinger. Harvey was predeceased by his sister, Doreen (Ruben) Kurpjuweit; his son, Loren Seitz; and his granddaughter, Jessica Seitz. Born on August 22, 1930 to Christian and Hannah Seitz, Harvey was raised in Little Plume, AB, just southeast of Medicine Hat. Harvey spent most of his life ranching at the Seitz family homestead and he held a special bond with his son Corwin whom he passed along the skills of harvesting and working the land. When Harvey wasn’t ranching, he could be found casting a line at Michel Reservoir with his companion, best friend, and fishing partner, Lorna. Harvey and Lorna were married on August 17, 1957 and they shared 63 years together, filled with many laughs and fond memories. Harvey was also a beloved member of the Little Plume community and was a long-time congregant of Little Plume Church. Many in the community will remember Harvey for his sense of humour and tender-hearted nature. Most of all, Harvey had a great love for his Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ – Harvey was a spiritual example to all that knew him. Due to current Covid-19 restrictions, a private family graveside service will be held at Little Plume Cemetery on Thursday, December 10th, 2020.
