Remple, Harvey 'Mountain Man'

(February 27th, 2023)

With great sadness we announce that Harvey Remple passed away suddenly from a heart attack at his home, accompanied by his loving wife of 62 years, Marlene. Harvey was a devoted man. Devoted to his faith, his wife, his family, his work, and his community.

He touched the lives of so many as an employer and friend. Harvey and his chipper attitude could always be heard singing, whistling, or encouraging those around him. His lifetime faith in a loving God was evident in all he did, and how deeply he loved.

Harvey wore many ‘hats’ in his lifetime: log home builder, mechanic, repairman, trapper, hunter, fisherman, nature lover, hiker, mill owner, pioneer/homesteader to name a few. The last hat he wore was as a caregiver to his loving wife.

He’s leaving behind his wife, Marlene, 3 children: Kimberley (Chuck Lafortune), Kevi (Gary Schneider), and Spencer (Kate Remple), 11 grandchildren, 7 great-grandchildren, 8 sisters, and one brother (predeceased). This sudden end to a beautiful and romantic life leaves a hole that cannot be filled.

A Celebration of Life will be held in summer.
