The family of Howard are deeply saddened by the loss of a beloved and caring husband, father, brother, grandfather, and great grandfather. He was the loving husband of Carol of Sunderland. Proud father of Laura Koot (deceased), and Rob and his wife Chantelle of Sunderland. His grandchildren, Stephanie and her husband Brent, Taylor, Jessica, Jordan, Cole, Luke, and John, especially enjoyed their fun and loving relationship with a proud “Pop”. The newest members of the family great grandchildren Laughlin, and Everett were happily welcomed by Howard. Respected brother of George, Bruce and Nancy, Elizabeth and Walter Brooks.
To respect the wishes of Howard a quiet family gathering to honor and remember him will be held at the Sunderland Cemetery.
If desired, memorial donations may be made by cheque to St. Andrew’s United Church, Sunderland or the charity of your choice. As Howard would wish for you take time each day to have a coffee with a loved one or friend and laugh. Memories, photos and condolences may be shared at www.thornefuneralhome.ca
