Howard also enjoyed and loved his five great grandsons Paul, Daniel, Lochlann, Tyler and Jonathan. Howard was very generous to his and supportive to his family and several important favourite charities.

Howard had a very competitive spirit and was an ardent 10 pin bowler, pool player and was ALWAYS up for an energetic (and noisy) game of cards and even in his late nineties last few games with family, friends at Berwick and Bowen Seniors.

We, the family would like to express our sincere thanks to staff and friends at Berwick and Bowen Seniors and especially to his caregivers for adding to the enjoyment of life to someone that was very dear to us.
