Harvey Franklin Hainer was the son of Colin Harvey and Ethel (Matthews) Hainer born on September 9, 1933 in Ontario, Canada. Colin and Ethel had two children, Harvey F and Elizabeth L. Harvey and his parents lived on Ambrose Street in St. Catharines according to voter registration lists which show both his parents in 1945 and 1949.
Harvey Franklin Hainer served in the Royal Canadian Air Force according to his tombstone but I did not find records in Ancestry.com for Canadian Military. He may have served during the time of the Korean Conflict. I also was unable to determine the exact date that Harvey married Marina (Mori) Shearer.
Harvey and his wife, Mori, lived on Ida Street, St. Catharines, Ontario. Harvey and Mori had two children according to information extracted from their Obituaries. Their children were Harvey and Debbi. According to a school year book Harvey Jr was born in 1954. Debbi appears to have been born after Harvey.
In a 1963 voter registration directory, Harvey Franklin’s occupation was a machine operator. In 1968, his occupation is listed as operator. In 1972, Harvey is a tool grinder and they still lived on Ida Street.
Ten years ago today, on July 23, 2009, Harvey Franklin died in St. Catharines, Ontario. He is buried in Maple Lawn Cemetery.
Rest in peace, Harvey,
Harvey Franklin is my third cousin once removed.
