Peacefully at the Bluewater Rest Home in Zurich, on October 13, 2018 with his daughter by his side, Jack Harvey of Exeter in 78th year, quietly slipped away to be at her side of his late wife Jane (April 8th, 2018). Loving father of Cheryl & Erich Freiter of Dashwood. Cherished papa of Byron Freiter of CFB Comox, B.C. & Shara Johnson of Victoria, and Katelyn Freiter & Mike McClure of Seaforth.

Jack will be missed by several nieces, nephews and extended family. Predeceased by his parents Leonard (1988) and Dallas (Young) (1995) Harvey.
Jack’s life was meant to be on the road. From a very young age he always delivered goods. As a youngster he delivered his papers, worked for Harvey’s grocery store, later Harvey’s Taxi & Ambulance. He loved serving his community. In 1962 he started his long haul of a career trucking with Guenther-Tuckey, then Laidlaw and later enjoyed working for Jim Scott Enterprises. In his travels delivering everything from road graders to salt and express he made many friends and colleagues along the way. Jack was honoured to be an Exeter Legion member for 45 years.
A private family memorial service will be held at the Haskett Funeral Home, 370 William St, Exeter on Wednesday, October 17th, 2018. Cremation with interment Exeter Cemetery.
