Howard STROMQUIST

STROMQUIST, Howard. July 18, 1934 – July 20, 2014. On Sunday, July 20, 2014 our much loved husband, father, papa & ol’papa left us for the happy hunting grounds to join the ancestors. He will be greatly missed by his wife, four children, eight grandchildren and great-grandson. Howard worked for over 55 years in the BC logging industry and was known for his strong work ethic and resourcefulness in challenging situations. Dad will be remembered for his humility, love of family, and his special way with babies & children. His children, nieces, nephews and grandchildren fondly remember regular outings with “Uncle Howie” to the Dairy Queen, wild rides along the winding roads to “camp”, Dad’s joking manner and infectious laugh. We love and miss you so much, Dad, but the pain will ease with each happy memory and funny story recalled. A celebration of Dad’s life will be held on Wednesday, August 6, 2014 at Spuzzum First Nation (30 min N of Hope), 12:00 – 3:00. All who knew Dad are welcome. Special thanks to Chilliwack General Hospital staff for their gentle care. In lieu of flowers, donations to BC Children’s Hospital or a charity of your choice would be gratefully accepted.
