It is with great sadness that the family of Kim Howard announce his passing on Wednesday October 28, 2020 at the age of 53. He is survived by his wife and high school sweetheart Tania and the pride and joy of his life, his sons, Sam and Cale. Lovingly remembered by his brothers Dean (Laura Lee) and Jason (Brett), brothers and sisters-in-law Brent and Alanna Wickens, Adam and Laura Racine. Uncle Kim brought much joy to his nieces and nephews Sarah (Jay), Krista (Mitchell), Lyla, Jack, Charlie, Emma (Will), Hannah, Holly and Kieran. Fondly remembered by his aunts, uncles and cousins. He will be missed by his furry chum Whiskey. Kim is predeceased by his parents Marshall and Linda (nee Proulx) and by his father-in-law Gordon and mother-in-law Ruth Racine. Kim had a passion for snowmobiles. He was a dedicated, long-time employee of Campbell’s Polaris. His reputation of being a skilled and knowledgeable mechanic was widely recognized. He enjoyed spending time in his garage fixing and restoring snowmobiles and any other challenges that came his way. He took great care in providing a happy, loving, comfortable home and life for his family. Most of all, he enjoyed spending time with family and friends. Over the years, many happy memories were made camping with friends, sitting by the fire enjoying a drink and sharing a laugh. “Bye for now. You are forever in our hearts.” A Celebration of Kim’s life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Crohn’s and Colitis Canada or the Pontiac Community Hospital Foundation Palliative Care Unit. The family wishes to thank Dr. Ruth Vanderstelt for her care and guidance and the nurses and staff of the Pontiac Community Hospital.
