Andrew Howard (Howie) Dunlop

September 15, 1930 to February 25, 2018


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.

Thinking about you and sending lots of love from England to Lillian, David, Stephen, Sandy and Donna + family & friends xoxo

Dear Aunt Ann,
We’re so very sorry to hear of Howie’s passing. Howie was a dear gentleman who showed kindness and took interest in anyone lucky enough to be in his company. He always made you feel like part of the family and he felt like part of ours. I do know that both of my dear parents enjoyed time together with you guys. He is in good company now. I sure wish I could be with you right now ! Xox Judy and Gary and Family

My heart goes out to Ann. She made Howie so happy and gave so much of herself to him. My heart also goes out to his children who loved him so much. Howie was and is my father-in-law. I loved him very much. He was fun, funny,, intelligent generous and warm-hearted. We had many heart to heart discussions and he advised me and helped me on many things including career, children and home. The world is a dimmer place without him. Carolyn

Ann, Family & Friends of Howie

Just to note that I failed to identify ourselves in
the preceding message!!!

Dear Ann, Family & Friends of Howie;
It is with deep sadness that I received word of Howie’s passing. I first met Howie in my Bible study group when I returned to St. Thomas’ a few years ago. Howie would often add so many helpful insights into the various passages of scripture we might be covering . Thus, began our friendship and christian fellowship which we have enjoyed so much together. He always displayed that warm and pleasant sense of humor whenever we had occasion to meet. We now commend his spirit to a loving Lord, and pray for God’s peace in this our time of bereavement. Every blessing!
