It is with profound sadness and love that we announce the passing of a very dear father, grandfather, soul mate and friend on the evening of February 25, 2018. Howie passed peacefully away at home surrounded by family and friends.
Born and raised in Montreal, Howie is predeceased by his parents Andrew and Elizabeth and brother Stewart.
Howie was an employee of 42 years at Northern Telecom and ended his career there as director of Marketing of Canada and the U.S.A. He retired in Florida.
In 2001 Howie found a reason to move to Newfoundland permanently with his soul mate Ann. He dearly loved all of Ann’s relatives and friends and the ways and friendliness of out port Newfoundland.
He is survived by his beloved Ann, sons David (Kathy), and Steven (Liza), daughters Sandra (Dennis), and Donna (Robin) and his loving grandchildren Victoria, Michael, Andrew, Julia, Alexandra, Erica and Brett.
A lifetime of thanks is extended to Lillian Dunlop – mother of his children. Thank to his special church family and those who were with him during his illness and subsequent passing.
Cremation has taken place. Relatives and friends may visit the family at Carnell’s Funeral Home, 329 Freshwater Road, on Thursday, March 1 from 2-4 & 7-9 p.m. A service of thanksgiving will be held at St. Thomas Church on Friday, March 2 at 11 a.m.
