Howard Hubert Hall
1920 ~ 2010
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Howard on Sunday, April 25, 2010, at age 89 after a short illness and an amazing and full life. We will miss him enormously. Dearly beloved husband and soul mate of Lorena (nee Custead); brother of Ed and Jessie (predeceased), and Wyndham; cherished father of Bruce (Nola) and Valerie Donahue (Paul); loving grandfather of Nathan (Carolyne), Allison Healey (Grant), Ainsley Wilson (Tony), Gregory and Lauren Hall; and the awesome great grandfather of Cameron Healey.
Born in Edmonton, AB., Howard served Canada enrolling in the military and assisted in the field of dentistry during WWII. He later graduated from the University of Alberta in Pharmacy (Class of 1950), married Lorena, the love of his life, in Calgary in 1949 and began his pharmacy career in Lethbridge, Alberta. Howard spent many happy years in Calgary where he owned and operated his own pharmacies before retiring to Vancouver Island where he enjoyed living in Lantzville, gazing over the water, spending time on the golf course perfecting his swing and socializing with his numerous buddies. Howard made a lasting impression on everyone he met as he was incredibly gregarious and cherished life. He loved his family, golfing, traveling and good food. He particularly enjoyed the annual family “H3 Golf Tournament” which will continue to be celebrated in his memory.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the charity of your choice.
A Celebration of Life will be held 13 June, 2010 from 2 to 4 PM at the Lantzville Legion.
