HOWARD, Thomas James


Age 76, of Lunenburg County, formerly of Lower Sackville and Point St. Charles, Que. It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of our much-loved husband, father and grandfather on July 18, 2017. Son of the late Victor and Florence Howard (of Montreal, Que.). He is survived by his wife of 52 years, Mary (McDonald); his daughters, Amber Hughes (Paul) and Patricia Perlman (Alan); his grandchildren, Ronan and Toran Hughes; as well as his sisters, Joan Harrison, Lillian Parker, and Gloria Assels (Eric). Tom was a 30-year Veteran of the Royal Canadian Navy, serving for many years aboard the HMCS Nipigon; aslo CFB Stadacona and AMA Headquarters. Retiring from the Navy, Tom continued to serve in the Corps of Commissionaires and finally as a member of the Admiral Desmond Piers Naval Association. Tom was actively involved in St. John's Anglican Church of Lower Sackville and St. James Anglican Church in Mahone Bay as both a Eucharist Minister and choir member. Through his life he had the greatest love of music, singing and dance. An adventurous nature, Tom's passion for the sea and travelling brought him around the globe. His infectious cheerfulness, stories and voice lifted in song will be greatly missed. Many thanks to his Homecare professionals from Lunenburg County Home Support Services. Very special thanks to his private caregivers, Debbie, Marjorie and Elfreda, for their kindness and friendship. A memorial service will be held Thursday, July 27, at 11 a.m. in St. James Anglican Church, Mahone Bay. Online condolences may be directed to:
