It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Howard on March 31st, 2021 at the age of 72. Howard was born May 26th, 1948 and grew up in Hanley, SK. After high school he ventured off to Toronto for a 2 year electronic course. While in Toronto he married his high school sweet heart Lynett Row. After his schooling he returned to Saskatoon and worked at Sasktel for 30 years. After he retired he was a commissionaire for 9 years. In 2010 both Howard and Lynett retired and spent every summer at Cochin, Jackfish Lake and taking a few vacations. The cabin was where Howard wanted to be and never wanted to leave; his most favourite place ever.

Howard was such a quiet, loving and gentle soul.
