  • Lindsay Strachan

    It is with great sadness that I read about the passing of Howard. He was such an icon in the town of Huntingdon. He was always happy to chat when clients entered his garage. We would talk weather, hockey, cars, school and many other issues. He was hard working and it is so unfortunate that he did not enjoy his retirement. His love was obviously his family, and I send my deepest sympathies to you all.

    I am so sad to hear that Howard has passed away. My deepest sympathies to you Lois and your entire family. For so many years I have loved popping into the garage and chatting with Howard and Daryl about everything ; I always left with a smile. His love for his community went far beyond the average day. I could call him and ask if he had room for a student to do a work program and never in 20 years did he say no. He will be missed greatly. My love to all of you as you struggle through this sad time.
