    I was so sorry to hear of Howie’s passing.
    I met him in the late 50’s while living in Killam.
    We kept up an off and on relationship in Edmonton and Calgary.
    Howie really loved golfing and was really good., at least compared to me, and Todd Fossen
    who often joined us. The three of us had many great times.
    Howie was a great guy we had many conversations about a number of topics and his family was always one of those topic, He was very proud of his family.
    My best wishes for you and the family during this difficult time.

    I my sorry that my health will keep me from attending Howie’s service.

    I was saddened to learn of Howie’s passing. Both Merv McIntosh and Mike Woolnough advised me.
    While we were both long time TD we never worked in the same branch. However the hilight each year was our golfing trip to Jasper. We used to take $2 per pay to pay for the trip. He often won some of the small wagers.
    Denise and I send our sincere sympathy.

  11. Glen, Carol and Jeff Spielman :

    Jeanette and family.

    We were so saddened to hear of Howie’s passing. I(Carol) worked with Howie so many years ago at TD Chinook. He was such a kind person and was such fun. Our son, Jeff, then asked Howie to act as his realtor when he purchased his first home in Okotoks. He also thought Howie was such a fine person and really enjoyed his company. Howie continued to drop his realtor memo pads in our mailbox for many years, and, although we didn’t often see him we still felt a connection with him. He will be missed.

    We all send our condolences to you and your family at this sad time.
