MUSCLOW, Howard Truman – It is with great shock and sadness, we announce the passing of the best husband, father, and grandpa in the world. Howard went to be with his Heavenly Father, whom he loved and served his whole life, on Tuesday, August 20th, 2013 at the Peterborough Regional Health Centre at the age of 73. Cherished husband and best friend of Deborah for 42 years. Loving father of Benjamin (Jacqui) and Chrissie (Don). Treasured Papa of Jacob, Madison, McKenna, Jeffrey, Tabitha and Jasmine. We will miss Howie’s many stories, groaner jokes and chats. Retired from Purolator Courier, Howard was a lay minister, helping in many Brethren Churches, a teacher, who taught in various one room school-houses, a carpenter, a gardener and a friendly neighbor, who would freely welcome anyone into his home. A Celebration of Howard’s Life was held at the COMMUNITY ALTERNATIVE FUNERAL HOME – ASHBURNHAM CHAPEL. If desired, donations in Howard’s memory to the Heart & Stroke Foundation, World Vision, or the Hospital for Sick Children may be made at www.CommunityAlternative.ca or by calling 705-740-0444.
