Howard was such a good man, we rode motorcycle with him and Clark for a few years, very good company and always said hello while having a coffee at Tim Hortons. He will be missed. We are sorry for your loss

Howard Oakley

We had the honour and pleasure of knowing Howard many years through CMA. We attended many events and campouts where we talked, laughed and shared life together. Howard was always kind, generous, ready to help, lots of fun but a true gentleman. We share your sadness at his passing but are so grateful for the wonderful memories of times shared and his Christian witness so evident in the way he lived.
