It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Fredrick (Rick) Howe at home on February 13, 2021 at the age of 73, after a hard-fought battle with cancer.
He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 40 years, Kathryn, daughter Victoria (Nick), sister Barbara, grandson William, as well as his nieces and nephews. Fred was predeceased by his parents, Frederick and Violet Howe, and brother Robert (Bob).
The family would like to extend its gratitude to Dr. Banerji and Dr. Kowaluk and their teams at CancerCare Manitoba for their phenomenal care of Fred over the past two years, as well as his family physician Dr. Ormiston, the nurses and healthcare workers from home care and the Palliative Care program.
As per his wishes, no service will be held.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made in his name to CancerCare Manitoba.

Gone, but never forgotten.

Condolences & Memories (4 entries)

  • Thought of Fred today when I was doing some work in the classroom. Upon his retirement, he gifted me a bunch of his extra tools for use in the classroom. Was putting them to use again. Fred was wonderful. So sad that he is gone. - Posted by: Corah Enns (co-worker at Ecole Dugald) on: May 15, 2023

  • On behalf of Ecole Dugald School we would like to send our sincerest condolences to the family. Fred would greet everyone with a smile (unless you messed something up of course, then you would get it lol). He was always willing to give a hand and had many stories to tell. We will miss him dearly. - Posted by: Brigitte (Co-worker Dugald School) on: Feb 22, 2021
