It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our dear husband and father Robert Gordon Howorth. Robert grew up on the farm in Whitewood, SK and after high school moved to Regina to obtain his CA with Clarkson and Gordon. He practiced his profession in Regina, Edmonton and Calgary.
Besides his accounting profession, Bob farmed at Whitewood from a distance making many a grueling journey at all times of day and night to plant and harvest his beloved farm.
