So sad to see another one of our DFO Colleagues has passed…especially one who would always say hello..R.I.P. Howard…soar high with the angels above……Condolences to his Family, Friends and Colleagues…

My condolences to Howard’s family. Howard was a colleague at DFO who I found to be kind, smart and very funny. When I think of him I’ll remember his Swedish Chef imitation that he would always greet me with ever since we worked together on an organizing committee for an international scientific conference held in St. John’s. He was one of a kind and will be missed.

My sincere condolences to Howard’s family. I worked at DFO as well and found Howard to be very pleasant and a pleasure to work with over the years!

My condolences to Howard’s family. He was a research assistant in my group for 25 years at DFO, always pleasant and a very very good technician who could work technical magic with small amounts of material. Howard was indeed one of a kind and it was my pleasure to have been associated with him for so long. Sad that he is gone. Derek Shaw (Qualicum Beach B.C.)

My condolences to Howard’s family. We trained together at then CTT and both started working at DFO on the same day. Our lab was in a trailer on the waterfront! We shared many growing pains and lots of laughs. We lost touch over the years but I have many fond memories of our time together. May he Rest In Peace.

My condolences to the family. I had the pleasure of meeting Howard at DFO and although did not work with him directly he always greeted you in the halls with the same smile and a kind word.

My condolences to the family. I met Howard at DFO and he was a kind gentle soul who spent a great deal of time helping others. His encyclopedic knowledge for crossword puzzles was truly amazing, the world has lost a good one.

My sincere sympathy to Howard’s family. He was a co-worker at DFO. I remember him as a gentle soul, always with a smile. May he Rest In Peace.

Vicky (and family)
I was so very saddened to hear of Howard’s passing today. My sincere condolences to all who loved him and frequented his company. Howard was one of the first people I met when starting at DFO in the late 90s. We quickly became friends; and besides being the best teacher of all things technical, we shared many lunches, stories and crossword puzzles up to his retirement. A mutual a love of cats also resulted in several related gifts from Howard that I cherish to this day. It was nice to be in touch with Howard on and off post his retirement although I missed him this last several years. The world has just lost a kind, funny and generous soul.

My condolences to the family. Howard was a work associate at DFO. He was always friendly and a jovial guy.

So sorry to hear of Howard’s passing. He will be missed. Won’t be the same not seeing him out on the patio next summer. A kind soul gone too soon.

So sorry to hear this news today, Howard was a coworker of mine at DFO., he loved doing his crossword puzzles. Deepest condolences to you..
