It is heartbreaking to announce that our beloved Howie passed away on the morning of Tuesday, March 31, 2009 after a courageous battle with cancer.
Howie embraced life and loved deeply, with an open and honest heart. He will be remembered forever by the love of his life Debby Kowalchuk; by his Dad Bob; his brothers, Bob and Ron; his sister Laurie; and by his little Daya, whom he loved so much. Howie’s legacy will live on in the memories of family and friends who were touched and supported by his inner strength and gentle, loving soul.
