Funeral Details: A Celebration of Life in Fred’s memory will be held on Saturday, February 1, 2020 from 12-3pm at Burton United Church Hall, 37 Burton Ave. Barrie, Ontario (Essa/Burton). 

It comes with heavy hearts and great sadness that the family of Fredric Howe, born November 26, 1936 in Saint John, New Brunswick, announce his peaceful passing at Hospice Simcoe in Barrie, Ontario on January 26, 2020, surrounded by his loving family.

 

Fred is survived by his daughter Kathie Howe-Allen of Barrie, Ontario; son Mark Howe of Barrie, Ontario; daughter Patricia Bools of Rockwood, Ontario; his last surviving sister Sandra (Loucks) of Grand Bay-Westfield, New Brunswick; his grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great-great grandchildren; his feline companions Patches, Monkey and Spider as well as several nieces and nephews.

Fred enjoyed camping with many fond memories at his trailer.  He loved fishing and spending time with his grandchildren in which he adored and his beloved pets.

 

Although Fred lived in Ontario, his home of New Brunswick was in his heart.  He proudly flew the NB flag always at his home.

 

Fred loved the Toronto Maple Leafs and was a huge baseball fan of his beloved Blue Jays.  He loved his Tuesday night Bingo sessions with his family, playing TV Bingo and weekends playing Newfie Bingo.  Fred would always be making someone laugh, he had the biggest of hearts and loved kidding around.  Fred will greatly be missed and remembered by everyone that knew him.  “How do you like me now” will always be his lasting life stamp.

 

A Celebration of Life in Fred’s memory will be held on Saturday, February 1, 2020 from 12-3pm at Burton United Church Hall, 37 Burton Ave. Barrie, Ontario (Essa/Burton).  All are welcome.

 

Internment will take place at a later date in his home province of New Brunswick.

    Those special memories of you will always bring a smile.
    If only I could sit and have coffee and talk again just like we used to do.
    You always meant so very much and always will do too.

    But you’re forever in my heart. Until we meet again
    RIP DAD

    Kevin(cheesie) and I have been together for over 28 years and I have just recently had the opportunity to visit Barrie, On. On those occasions I had the pleasure of meeting Fred Howe for the first time. We have been back a few times since then and Fred always welcomed us into his home. We had many special times hanging out, having a few drinks, laughs and playing with Google mini, which Fred especially loved listening to.. When we visited in November for his daughters birthday, we had many more laughs and special times together. It breaks our hearts to hear of his passing. We are going to miss him so much when we travel back to visit. Cheesie and I would like to express our deepest condolences to everyone who cherished and loved him. RIP Fred. Fred had given Kevin the nickname cheesie at a very early age and it still sticks today.
