Harvey Thomas was a friend.He loved to talk about politics, economics, railroads, markets and crops. Family history moved him. He yarned about the storms, the droughts, the struggles and the granary full of legacy garden seeds his grandmother left. Son Wayne, his Shauna-Lee and their children moved his soul. Harvey lived for Sunday dinners together and the work projects and sports events.
Our sympathies to the family and all who loved him.
RIP Harvey

Harvey was a good friend. He was dedicated to his family and farm, and the betterment of prairie grain farmers.

He was never shy about phoning the Wheat Board or Wheat Pool staff to find out about an issue and then sharing his knowledge. Harvey was very well informed on grain marketing and handling, and insightful about all things agricultural. He contributed above and beyond the call of duty yet he never felt he had done anything special and always refused to let others tell his story.

We spoke often and I will very much miss his insight and wisdom on everything from the complexities of grain marketing to the best way to plant parsnips. My wife, daughter and I will very much miss our conversations with Harvey.
