On behalf of Joyce Wilson and family


Now that we’ve had a little while to breathe, we want to send out a HUGE thank you! Our community, friends and colleagues are amazing! All of the comments/messages, cards, baskets, food and phone calls were so kind. To see the turnout for Howard’s processions, from the streets being lined, to all those that came to join in, was truly heart warming.

The firefighters and tow operators sure brought peace of mind, knowing Howard got exactly what he wanted! Thank you all so much for everything you did!

A few special mentions are needed.

North Grenville Fire Service and all the firefighters who helped give Howard the most amazing send off. Howard was so proud to stand along side of you and would be beaming watching over!

Julia O’Grady from ITM Events in all your planning. You were a true life saver and we are so grateful to have had you along side us through a difficult time!

Bob Beshara, Class Axe Guitars for providing the tent, PA and piano! Howard may not have gotten in for his guitar lesson, but he was proud to call you a friend!

Municipality of North Grenville for allowing us to use the college campus to hold Howard’s service!

Ron Donnelly for your amazing music! Playing Howard’s favourite songs brought us to happy tears!

Rev Randy Jansen and Rev Arnold MacLauchlan for taking part in delivering Howard’s Service!

Rev William Morehouse for speaking and the music!

Johnny Etheridge and Bill Ewing for standing guard with Howard.

And all the people who have watched videos and shared in our time of mourning.

He will be missed by so many, but especially our family. He was a kind, over-giving comedian. His witty one liners while sitting in his chair in his overalls will be remembered by many!

We ask you to continue to share your favourite stories, stop by for visits, and always remember what a true gem he was.

Thank you again to everyone! We couldn’t have done it without all of you.
