HOWARD--In loving memory of a dear mother and grandma Marlene Elizabeth who
passed away January 24, 2001.
As it dawns another year,
In our lonely hours of thinking
Memories of you are always there.
We shed silent tears,
Mention your name often,
Remembering all the things we shared.
Wishing you were here,
We know you are watching
And guiding us through life.
Your presence we miss
Your memory we treasure dearly.
Loving you always
Forgetting you never.
Sadly missed, lovingly remembered by Wanda, Larry, Caitlyn and Tyler.

Inseparable in life and death
The boys' mother, Shauna BROCK- HOWARD, has created an award in their memory to be given annually.
By Randy RICHMOND, Free Press Reporter, Wed., June 28, 2006
Blair HOWARD, left, and his brother, Byron, shown fishing in Florida last summer, died when their car hit a tree in Roswell, Georgia., last Thursday.
Last summer, Byron HOWARD decided to stay in Georgia for a while because his big brother, Blair, needed him there.
This week the two brothers returned home, each in his own casket, each holding a photograph of the other.
Their mother, Shauna BROCK- HOWARD, placed the photographs in the caskets before the trip home from Georgia to London, finding some solace in the fact her eldest sons are still together.
"They were best of Friends right from the beginning," BROCK- HOWARD said yesterday.
"I believe God made the decision to take both boys because of how close they were. If he had taken only one, the other one&hellip " she said, unable to continue.
Blair, 24, and Byron, 22, were killed in a single-vehicle crash about 4 a.m. Thursday in Roswell, Georgia., police there said.
Their 1994 Honda Accord left a curve in the road and struck a tree. Alcohol was not a factor, police said.
Their mother returned to her Oakridge home yesterday morning after arranging for the bodies to come home, distraught at the thought the caskets were separated for a while in Toronto.
Her sons' paths were separate but always intertwined, she said.
"Blair was born with a pencil in his hands. He was a talented artist."
In Grade 4, he went to Lester B. Pearson School for the Arts. He played the piano, played violin with the London Youth Symphony Orchestra and sang in the Amabile boys' choir.
"He was a little uncomfortable with his artistic side. It wasn't manly enough, so to balance that he was an avid hockey player, lacrosse player, soccer player," BROCK- HOWARD said.
After high school, Blair's artistic and "manly side" combined into a love of carpentry.
"Carpentry chose him. He loved working with wood," BROCK- HOWARD said.
Blair headed down to Georgia in 2001 with a friend on vacation and met a master carpenter who began teaching him.
"And then he met a girl and he fell in love. So he found ways to stay."
Meanwhile, Byron was making his own way.
Where Blair was born eager and intense, wiry and artistic, Byron was laid-back, not as artistic, but more solid physically.
Blair was the kind of kid who played left wing in hockey; Byron loved defence.
Like his older brother, Byron played just about every sport going.
The two led the younger three children in the family, Olivia, Brodi and Bryer. They also are survived by their father, Philip HOWARD, and stepfather Chuck CHAMBERS.
Blair was the authority.
"You will listen to your mother," he used to tell the other children.
Byron had a different way to keep the peace, BROCK- HOWARD recalled.
"Just tell her what she wants to hear," he would say.
As adults, the two sons loved to watch sports, and fish and see Friends together.
"They were opposites, but they complemented each other," BROCK- HOWARD said.
Byron went to Georgia for a short visit with his brother last summer.
But just then, Blair's relationship with his girlfriend collapsed. Byron decided to stick around his older brother.
"He stayed to look after his brother," BROCK- HOWARD said.
Her sons settled in Alpharetta, a community of about 30,000 people northeast of Atlanta. They were enjoying the good and easy times of young men free from school and financial worries.
Her sons were coming back this summer. Byron was returning to school for his electrician's papers. Blair was coming for a visit and, his mom hoped, to find work here.
Because of how her boys are coming home now, BROCK- HOWARD has decided to keep alive the way they once were.
With the help of family and Friends, she has established the Blair and Byron Howard Spirit Award, to be given annually to a student at the boys' old high school, Sir Frederick Banting.
"They were good kids. It is a crying shame," said Vicki MILES, a teacher at Banting.
"They were always in the front hallway, laughing. They were well-rounded, characters."
That is the kind of student BROCK- HOWARD wants to help.
"I would like it to be a child who isn't the smartest or most athletic or the best at anything, but honest and caring and with strong family values. This might be the thing that helps them go forward."
The award will resurrect the spirit of her sons, and her faith in life itself, BROCK- HOWARD said.
"Two of my boys are gone," she said. "I will believe in the child who gets this award."
Funeral arrangements at Westview Funeral Chapel had not been set at press time.
Donations to the Blair and Byron Howard Spirit Award can be made at Westview or with the Thames Valley Education Foundation, a registered charity affiliated with the Thames Valley District school board.

Kenneth MAXTED, Officer And Clergyman (1931-2006)
He was a soldier-turned-priest who brought a military bearing to the clergy, writes Sandra MARTIN. He loved ceremony and uniforms and, with a bristling moustache, always looked the part -- irrespective of vocation
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S11
There were uniforms, medals, honorary guards and the robust singing of hymns as the many parts of Rev. Ken MAXTED's life came together Thursday afternoon at Saint_James Cathedral. The church was packed for the service that Canon MAXTED had himself planned, even to the designation of who should give the homily. Don't talk about me, Canon MAXTED said in his written funeral instructions to Rev. Mark SARGENT, a Catholic priest: Preach the gospels.
A self-defined soldier-priest who served in Korea and then became an ordained Anglican priest, Canon MAXTED was a community activist, a traditionalist and a great burly fellow who loved a joke and knew how to tell a story. "There was never an atheist in a foxhole," said Charles SCOT- BROWN, a retired soldier and family friend, attributing Mr. MAXTED's dual vocation to his upbringing in a family that went to church and "believed in God and the King, and when the King blew the whistle you joined."
He loved ceremony and uniforms and he looked the part, standing 6 feet 5 inches, with flaming red hair, a bristling mustache and a booming voice. In the mid-1970s, in addition to his duties as a clergyman, a reservist and an elected school official, Canon MAXTED began working as a volunteer aide de camp for Ontario's Lieutenant-Governors. In the next 20 years, he served Pauline McGibbon, John Aird Black, Lincoln Alexander and Henry N.R. JACKMAN.
"Nobody stood as tall as he did in his scarlet uniform, with all the gold braid and piles of medals," said Mr. JACKMAN, remembering a time, in the early 1990s, when Bob Rae was premier of Ontario. Mr. Rae was explaining the parliamentary system to a group of schoolchildren and Canon MAXTED was standing to attention behind him, recalled Mr. JACKMAN. Afterward, one of the children was asked what he thought of the premier. "He looked magnificent, but he didn't say anything," the student said, complaining that "the little guy beside him did all the talking."
Major The Reverend Canon Kenneth MAXTED was born in Toronto, the elder of two children of Edward Kenneth (Ted) MAXTED (a professional soldier who had joined the Canadian army in 1921 at 12 as a bugle boy and retired 40 years later as a major) and his wife Mary Eileen Patricia HOWARD. Both sides of the family had served in the military going back at least three generations.
Canon MAXTED grew up in Toronto with his younger sister Patricia and attended Parkdale Collegiate. Too young to serve in the Second World War, he enlisted as a private in the Irish Regiment in 1948 when he was 17. "He was always an intense, energetic, mischievous kid," said Mr. SCOT- BROWN, who served with Canon MAXTED's father. "He could pull the craziest practical jokes, but his pranks never hurt anybody."
Canon MAXTED qualified as a reserve officer in 1951 and as an infantry officer in the regular forces the following year. A member of the now defunct Canadian Guards, he served in Germany with North Atlantic Treaty Organization Forces and in Korea with the United Nations forces in 1953 for a year-long tour of duty.
Before he returned to Canada, he gave a speech to the South Korean soldiers, deploring "the thousands of homeless and the hungry children begging for food" and the "rubble and shell-torn cities" and paying tribute to the people "of the Land of the Morning Calm" and their "never-failing determination to survive as a free and independent nation." In return, they gave him a South Korean flag. Forty years later, Mr. MAXTED gave the flag to his son Kevin to take back to South Korea when he taught English there for a year in 1996. The flag is now part of a display about the Korean War at the Royal Canadian Military Institute in Toronto.
Back in Canada, Canon MAXTED was stationed at Camp Ipperwash, about an hour's drive from London, Ontario One evening in September of 1954, he went to a dance at the London Arena. There he spotted a young Dutch immigrant named Hendrina VAN DER MOER. He asked her to dance and she accepted. Six months later, on St. Patrick's Day, he proposed. They were married on December 15, 1955, in a military wedding at Saint Paul's Cathedral in London. Three children followed: Pamela, Sean and Kevin.
Canon MAXTED, who had always been a devout Christian, decided to study for the ministry and enrolled in the Faculty of Theology at Huron College in the University of Western Ontario in 1960. "The military and the church were always entwined in him," said his wife, who was not surprised when her husband came home one day and said he wanted to leave the regular army and study theology.
One of his fellow students was retired Archbishop Terry FINLAY. "He used to lighten our studies by coming up with an occasional military term to keep our worship in order, but underneath all that, there was a strong commitment to the faith.
"As his archbishop, I found his approach much more conservative than mine, but we were able to work together," Archbishop FINLAY said, declining to elaborate on the specific issues, other than to confirm that Canon MAXTED was a traditionalist.
He was ordained as an Anglican deacon in 1963, and a priest in 1964. He served in a number of Toronto parishes as he climbed the ecclesiastical career ladder, including Saint Anne's, Saint_John's York Mills, St. Luke's in East York and historic Holy Trinity Church in the middle of downtown Toronto, adjacent to the Eaton Centre.
This appointment was controversial. Holy Trinity, one of the oldest surviving Anglican churches in Toronto, had a dwindling but radical congregation and was in danger of being overpowered by commercial development. The late Archbishop Lewis GARNSWORTHY decided to put himself in direct charge of the church in February of 1977. He appointed Canon MAXTED, who had served under him at Saint_John's York Mills, Vicar in May, 1977, in a move that many observers felt was autocratic and designed to make the church conform to traditional ideas of parish outreach. Five months later, Archbishop GARNSWORTHY issued a statement saying there were irregularities in the ministry, function, government and Anglican tradition at the church and announced he was setting up a commission to recommend corrective action.
Many parishioners were outraged, but Canon MAXTED proved an adept conciliator and "stabilized" the situation, according to Very Rev. Douglas STOUTE, dean of Saint_James Cathedral and one of the celebrants at Canon MAXTED's funeral. "He always had a military bearing and his immersion in military culture made him respect authority and hierarchy, but he never took it too seriously," said Dean STOUTE. " Behind his military facade, he was a gentle spirit and a man of great compassion. He had a huge sense of humour and was a wonderful raconteur."
A year later, he was named an honorary Canon of Saint_James Cathedral, an appointment that allowed a clever editor at The Globe and Mail to top a news story about a robbery at Holy Trinity in 1984 with the headline: "Canon weighs down thief." Apparently, Canon MAXTED had noticed a man grappling with a customer and an employee of the church's café and wrestled the suspect to the ground where he sat on him. "I'm a former infantry officer, so I knew what to do," the burly soldier-priest said. "I may be 52, but I'm still good for one round." After the thief was incarcerated, Canon MAXTED visited him in jail.
In addition to his duties to the Church (he was regional dean of Saint_James Deanery from 1980-1984 and chaplain of the Fort York Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion, the Royal Canadian Military Institute and 54 Division Toronto Police Services) and to the military, where he served in the reserves from 1960 to 1986, Canon MAXTED was a school board trustee in East York from 1974 to 1994 and chair of the East York Board of Education from 1986-92. He also acted in a senior capacity on a number of community organizations from the Metro Folk Arts Council to Toronto-Amsterdam Twin Cities Committee to the East York Cancer Society.
Speaking about Canon MAXTED's intense level of activity, his old friend Mr. SCOT- BROWN said this was typical of an infantry officer. "In the infantry, you were always taking care of your men. When something had to be done, you didn't look at it -- you fixed it. You got on with it."
Besides his service decorations, including the Order of Military Merit, he was awarded the Centennial Medal and the Queen Elizabeth Jubilee Medal. He was also an active member of the Royal Canadian Military Institute and an engaged and energetic family man, performing weddings and baptisms as his children grew and multiplied. And he started what many would consider a new career, as a member of three federal administrative tribunals, the Canadian Pension Commission, the Veterans Review and Appeal Board and the Canadian Forces Grievance Board.
About a year ago, he appeared to be suffering from laryngitis but it turned out to be non-Hodgkins lymphoma that had manifested itself in a tumour in his throat. He started chemotherapy last September, but his immune system couldn't stave off infections. "He liked to set goals," Ms. MAXTED said about her husband, mentioning that no matter how ill he was, he wanted to live long enough to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary in December. Instead, she reminded him on St. Patrick's Day that he had made it to the 50th anniversary of their engagement. He died the next day.
Major the Rev. Canon Kenneth Edward MAXTED was born on June 23, 1931, in Toronto. He died of complications from cancer on March 18, 2006. He was 74. He is survived by his wife, Hendrina, his children Pamela, Sean and Kevin, two grandchildren, his sister and two nephews.

In 1960, he moved to Toronto with General Motors Frigidaire Division, was subsequently promoted to Chief Engineer and was a visible contributor to Habitat '67 at Montreal's World Fair. In 1969 he moved to Halifax as the first president and chairman of two provincial crown corporations, Halifax International Containers and Halterm Limited.

Joseph HOWARD (Louise) of Calgary and Anne LOWNDES (Jock) of Toronto; his grandchildren Paul (Katie), Jay (Fran) and Heather and Jill LOWNDES; and his great-grandchildren Cameron, Christopher, Andrew and Erin HOWARD.

HOWARD, J.F., Q.C.
On Saturday, June 3, 2006 Jake died at home surrounded by his family and Friends, having lived a full and accomplished life full of love, laughter and with almost all of his ambitions and wishes fulfilled. He will be sorely missed by his wife of 55 years, Nancy, his children, their spouses and grandchildren, Gillian Peter and Leslie; Ian, Robin, Christopher, Daniel and Rachael and Margot, Peter, Jake and Anne. All of the family always felt his love, support and delight in their successes and sought his wisdom and gentle counsel when things went awry. After serving in Canada's navy Jake graduated with a B.Comm. from the University of Toronto and then from Osgoode Hall. Jake was a partner at Blake, Cassels and Graydon LLP, where he began his practice of law in 1953. He was called to the Bar in Ontario, Saskatchewan, and Alberta and was named Queen's Counsel in 1966. His practice was commercial litigation before all levels of all courts and he participated in numerous special inquiries and administrative tribunals. He was a member of the Advocates Society, a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, and the first recipient of the Douglas K. Laidlaw Medal for Outstanding Advocacy in 1990. He was known for his ability to analyze cases quickly and completely and was a confident and accomplished advocate. He was also a natural teacher and a mentor to many young lawyers, both in his firm and throughout the profession. When Jake reduced his legal practice, he was appointed a Commissioner of the Ontario Securities Commission where he gladly contributed his wisdom and experience. Jake was an exceptional athlete being an accomplished skier, fly fisher, golfer, sailor and horseman, the latter being an interest which would occupy an important place in his later years. He was a member of the Board of Trustees of the Woodbine Entertainment Group from the mid-eighties, having served as Chair and then Honourary Chair at Woodbine where he was deeply respected for his work that ensured thoroughbred and harness racing in the Province of Ontario continued to thrive. Winning a major stakes race at Woodbine remains an unfulfilled wish, but perhaps that's yet to come. The family would like to express their deepest thanks to all of the health care professionals who cared for Jake and made it possible for him to enjoy life and then to die at home, as he wished. Particular thanks to Doctor Vincent MAIDA and Kim JOYCE for all of their support at home and to Doctor Pauline PARISER, a wise, wonderful and caring family physician. We would also like to thank Judy TUTTY, Jake's 'right hand' of so many years and his Friends John S. BURNS, Alan CAVENAGH, John R. EVANS, Donald ROSS, and David WILLMOT who provided love and support throughout his illness. Woodbine Racetrack is the location chosen for a celebration of Jake's life where Friends and family will gather on June 23 in the Northern Dancer Room from 3: 30 p.m. to 5: 30 p.m., share memories of Jake, and perhaps participate in the sport he loved. In lieu of flowers, a contribution to the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation (www.pmhf.ca) would be appreciated by the family.
