HOWE – David William James

August 17, 1953 – July 27, 2010

It is with deep sorrow that David’s family announces his sudden passing. Dave was a soft spoken, gentle man with a quiet but wicked sense of humour. He was a spiritual seeker and had a love for reading, creative pursuits and computers. Born in Sidney, B.C., Dave left in 1976 to pursue opportunities in Calgary and settled happily into his work as a production accountant and systems analyst in the oil patch.

Dave leaves behind his wife, Nina, mother Viola, sisters Deborah (Len), Karen (Ron), brother Alan (Lolita) a loving extended family of in-laws, aunts, nieces, nephews as well as dear friends, co-workers and canine companions.
He was predeceased by his father, William.
All of us will miss his kind heart.

At Dave’s request, there will not be a memorial service. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. If friends so desire gifts, flowers and, donations may be made to the Self Realization Fellowship 3880 San Rafael Ave, Dept. 9W Los Angeles, CA 90065-3219 or the Calgary Health Trust – Specific Area, Suite 800, 11012 MacLeod Trail S.E., Calgary, AB T2J 6A5, Telephone: (403)943-0615, www.thetrust.ca, with gratitude to the ICU staff at the Peter Lougheed hospital.

In living memory of David, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Fish Creek Chapel, 14441 BANNISTER ROAD S.E. Telephone: (403) 256-9575.

    My deepest sympathies to Dave’s family. Dave was absolutely the most gentle soul I have ever met, not to mention the most smartest. He was my “go to guy” whenever I had questions about systems and he always helped me. I will always remember him and will miss him. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

    I will forever be grateful for knowing and working with Dave. It was his kindness and patience, but most of all, his unique sense of humour and never-ending pranks that I will never forget.
    All my memories of him will forever be cherished and remembered.

    It is with great sorrow in my heart that I pass on to his family and close friends the love, prayers and warm wishes I send to Dave. Heart pain is the worst pain. Cherish your memories of him – they will keep him close to you. Working in years past with Dave was such a pleasure – he had a ton of knowledge that he shared willingly and kindly with whoever asked, and his sense of humor took people by surprise, until they got to know him. He will be missed. God bless, Dave. Sleep with angels.

    We have very fond memories of Davie from North Saanich Jr Secondary School in Sidney BC. Although he was quiet in classes, he was a very good friend outside – a true testament to the notion that still waters run deep.

  15. I just heard of Dave’s passing yesterday and I was shocked and saddened by his departure. Dave helped me get my first production accounting job 20 years ago and I was fortunate enough to work with him again 12 years later. What a wonderful, kind, gentle person you were Dave. You will be very much missed by all those who were blessed to have met you.

    May you be at peace now.

  17. I recently found myself daydreaming about the pranks Dave used to pull on my sisters and me whenever we visited. He was so stealthy that despite my best attempts to anticipate them, he got me every time! He was an awesome uncle and I miss him. Sending my hugs to you and the woofies Nina.

    Love Norine
