Uncle Howie, you were one fantastic, enjoyable uncle, You often called me Tommy Turmoil which I always remembered and always will. My Thoughts are with Jan, Carrie and family. R.I.P Uncle Howie, you were one cool uncle .
I am so sorry for your loss, you are in my thoughts and prayers
So sorry to hear of Howie's passing. It's been a long time since we spoke last. Uncle Glenn Gibson organized a family lunch at the Cadmus Country Club several years ago & we had a brief conversation then. My fondest memory's of Howie were at the Gibson farm. We both built a "tree" fort in Grandma Gibson's monster lilac bush, out beside the outhouse. We had a great time....I think I have a photo of us both, up in the fort. He often entered my thoughts over the past few years, hoping he would win the fight. As Aunt Birdie would say, we were 1st cousins, once removed. Marie & I send our condolences.

I am so deeply sorry to hear about Howie's passing. We were childhood friends. I will always remember his humour and kindness and humanity. I knew he was battling health issues for many years. May his memory be for a blessing and may he rest in divine peace.

Thinking of you Jan and your family during this very difficult time. Howard had a quiet, kind demeanor and he will be greatly missed.
As one of the three wittiest and kindest people I know, Howard will now be back with his friends David and Pat! I send love and strength to Jan, and sympathies to his other family members.
A longtime friend and a good man. He will be missed. ♥️
When I joined the Kinsmen Club of Lindsay in the 1980s, Howard was a great mentor and supporter. Not only was he a great source of humour, but he was an extremely wise person in all senses. His wisdom, his sense of humour and his intelligence will be missed.
One of the highly of my young life was watching you play drums, even better when I got to play with you for a short period in a band. God bless you Howie, and may He grant you travelling mercies home. Say hi to your mom for me,, she'll probably ask how my brother Gary is . Always her favourite. ❤️
Jan. Thinking of you at this difficult time.
