Harvey was born on March 28, 1941 at Watson, SK to Roman and Freida (nee Schreiner) Schiltz. He grew up on the family farm in the Annaheim district, attending Hat Creek School until Grade 8 and then continuing his education at Annaheim for high school. He began employment at Angelstad’s and over the next few years worked to become a Journeyman Sheet Metal Worker.
