A sense of adventure and work led him to Cabri/Abbey SK, then Alberta - Morin, Shouldice, Mossleigh, Champion, Grande Prairie, back to SK – Weyburn and finally to Vermilion AB where he and Carol have lived for the past 36 ½ years. He was a proud United Grain Growers grain buyer and district manager for 40 years. He was a golfer, curler, pool player and most importantly a Papa. His vegetable garden and green grass were legendary. His happiest moments were always when he was surrounded by family and friends telling stories and barbecuing some steaks (winter or summer). Howard contributed to every community he lived in. He was involved in Lions, Masons, Legion, Senior Center, Housing Authority, Handi-van, United Church and others. He was the proud recipient of the Rotary Integrity Award. He and Carol were foster parents for many years.

He was loved by many.
