Harvey Lysle Shook was born in the Bitterroot Valley in Hamilton, Montana.
He is survived by his wife of 62 years, Darlene; his daughter, Debbie Carpenter of St. Helens, Oregon; his son, Danny Shook of Milwaukie, Oregon; brothers, Earnest and Lysle Owen Shook both of Hamilton; and sisters, Constance Lela Schaefer of Corvallis and Betty Ann Codioux of Wareham, Massachusetts. He was preceded in death by his beloved grandparents, Lee and Zella Shook and his parents, Harvey Lysle Shook Sr. and Dorothy Lela Gaffney Davis.
Harvey and Darlene moved to Portland, Oregon, in 1963 where Harvey began a career in the HVAC Industry. He spent many years as a service tech working on big units the size of freight cars on top of tall buildings. In 1986 he started his own contracting business with two other people. The company grew very successfully under Harvey’s watch and Harvey retired in 2001. HVAC Inc. has 90 employees today.
Harvey will be dearly missed.
