The family of John Howie sadly announces his passing from kidney failure at Lamont Health Care Centre.
He was born the third child of Ethel (Lovell) and William Howie on February 19, 1940, at The Pas, Manitoba.
John is survived by his loving wife Carol, daughter Heather (Adam), and son Scott, five grandchildren – Justin, Matthew, Nigel, Madeline, and Elliot as well as one great grandson Ashton. Also left to mourn his loss are his sister Sheila (John) Sunley, brother Gordon (Tanalee), in-laws Margaret and Jim Mackie as well as a hose of nieces and nephews.
John was predeceased by his parents William and Ethel, his brother Bill (June) Howie, and his parents-in-law, and Charles and Grace Flask.
A graveside service is planned for the spring when we all hope the pandemic allows more freedom.
The family wishes to express a great deal of gratitude to Dr. Cockfield and the Renal Clinic at the U of A Hospital as well as the medical and nursing staff of Lamont Health Care Centre for their expert and compassionate care.
If you so desire, donations in John’s name may be made to the Lamont Health Care Centre or a charity of your choice.
