HOWARTH, Thomas MacFarlane
August 24, 1924 – December 29, 2011
It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our Uncle, Great Uncle, and Brother, Thomas MacFarlane Howarth. Tom will be missed by his sister-in-law, Bridie Howarth; niece, Sharon (Doug) Enns; nephew, Doug (Elaine) Howarth; Nieces: Brenda Ritchie, Debra (Cal) Vanderveen, Kathy (Ray) VanStaalduinen, Janice (Ken) Howarth, Denise (Len) Smit & all of his Great and Great-Great Nieces and Nephews, as well as his Manitoba Brothers, Sisters, Nieces and Nephews. Tom is survived by 8 siblings and predeceased by 3 brothers, Gr. Nephew Bryce.
Tom was born in Wakapa, Man., where he worked hard on the farm, then in Winnipeg at various jobs until he moved to BC to join his brother, Norm, Bridie & their 7 children, to work at Buckerfield’s. Tom bought a house in 1980 which he proceeded to fill with his woodwork. He loved building furniture, fishing, playing crib, spending time with his family in BC and spending his vacation with his family in Manitoba.
There will be a private celebration of his life by family.
We love you & we will miss you.
