1944 - 2022

Howard was born on February 12, 1944 to Sam and Florence Roehle. He grew up with his siblings, Joan, Fred, Bob, and Rhoda and attended the local Irwington School. He completed his education at Stonewall Collegiate in 1961.
Howard was a farmer at heart and continued the dairy farm on Blackdale Road that his parents started in 1937.
He married Karen Farough on October 13, 1972 and together, they raised their family, Kendal, Andrea, Warren, and Erika on the farm which is now entering the fourth generation.
In 1999, Howard, Karen moved to a small farm at Portage la Prairie where they enjoyed many years of semi- retirement.
Howard will be remembered for his integrity and hardworking approach to life.
The funeral service for Howard will be held on Saturday, October 8, 2022, at 11:00 a.m. at the Roehle and Walter Farm, located at 64067 Simplot Road, 2.6 kilometers south of #1 Highway just west of Portage la Prairie, MB.

  • I remember growing up on the farm as dad worked there and Howard calling my first pup a rat. He had a humorous side to him. He was always working and had a huge heart. He will be missed. - Posted by: Colleen Riddoch (Family friend ) on: Oct 02, 2022

  • We lived with Howard, his bothers Bob and Fred and sister Rhoda on the farm from 1953 to 1855. My brothers and I shared many adventures both at the school and on the farm from playing games at school to doing chores on the farm. Our two years there were some of the happiest in our lives. Times were a bit tough as we had to walk about a mile and a half to school summer and winter but we got used to it. The times at the school was a great time of fun and games engineered by both our teacher and ourselves. The Roehle kids were are best friends. They helped us integrate into Canada as we had emigrated from Holland and being young and inquisitive we learned quickly and participated in the work and mostly play games. We all have many fond memories of the whole family. Our sincere condolences to the family. Korey and Yelle - Posted by: Korey Dykstra (Friend) on: Oct 01, 2022
