Harvey David Pinkerton

It is with heavy hearts, we announce the passing of Harvey David Pinkerton on March 30, 2021 at the Nipissing Serenity Hospice with his family by his side.  Harvey is the beloved husband of Joan Pinkerton, dear father of Lynn (Dan) Mantha, and Mike Pinkerton (Melissa).  Cherished grandfather of Kelly Lynn (Wade) Wager, Brandon, Nicholas and Andrew Pinkerton, Lee and Kevin (Ashley) Mantha.  Adored great poppa of Madisyn, Molly, Paige and Addison.

He is predeceased by his parents Harvey and Frances Pinkerton and siblings, Helen (Charlie) Johnson, and Anne (Earl) Houck.

Harvey was born and raised in Machar Township, worked at the family farm; Johnsons Dairy as the milkman, and finally Pinkerton Sand & Gravel which he owned for 45 years before retiring.

His love for horses was the worst kept secret in the area.  Horses, specifically Welsh Driving Ponies, took second place only to his family and friends.

He felt a strong commitment to his community being a Charter Member of the South River Lions Club and Life Member of the South River Agricultural Society and his recent accomplishment of being elected the 25th Mayor the The Township of Machar preceded by, councillor for a period of 20 years.

As per his wishes, memorial donations to the Multiple Sclerosis Society or Nipissing Serenity Hospice would be gratefully appreciated.
