Howard K. Irwin

With a deep sense of sorrow and loss our family announces the passing of our father Howard K. Irwin on July 4, 2019 at the age of 86.

Howard is survived by his son Darren (Marla) Irwin and Danielle (Paolo) Coco; grandchildren Tamsyn Irwin, Jacqui Irwin, Jesica Coco and Marisa Coco; brothers-in-law, Allan (Marge) Russell, Wayne (Jeannette) Russell; several nieces and nephews and his good friend Tom Brown.

He was predeceased by his parents Edward J. and Angela Irwin, and his wife and soulmate Joan Russell Irwin.

Cremation has taken place, as per Howard’s request there will be no service. There will be a gathering to scatter his cremated remains which will be announced at a later date.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the wonderful staff at the Good Samaritan Society who cared so much for Howard during his time there.

Howard was a strong, quiet, and gentle man, who lived his life working and caring for his family. He was an avid hunter and outdoorsman and could build anything. His intelligence was endless as was his love for his wife Joan. They are together again rejoicing in their reunion.

Rest in Peace Dad.

We Love You.

We were so very sorry to hear this news. We met Howard at Good Samaritan, where he shared a table with our Mother, Marilyn Woods. We enjoyed so many conversations about his Harley, his work in the Yukon, and his beautiful wife. We miss him already.

Wendy & Doug Stowe

We had the pleasure of meeting Howard at Good Samaritans where he shared a table with our mother. He quickly became a good friend to our mother and all of our family, and we felt as if we had known him forever. A true gentleman and a kind and beautiful soul. We will never forget him. We are so sorry for your loss.

Donna & Barry Worden

We were close friends of Howard and Joan and remember the many good times we had with them. Joan was my lifelong friend and together we went on many camping trips around Alberta. Now after almost 24 years they are together again. RIP Howard.
