James David Howatt
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of James (Jim) Howatt at Huronview Home for the Aged, Clinton on Friday, April 15, 2016. He was in his 86th year.
Jim was the beloved husband of the late Delores Howatt (2014) and the dear father of Connie Bratt, London; Joan and her husband Bert Vandendool, Londesborough; the late Judy Irwin - March 24, 2016 (Gary Anderson), and Larry Howatt and his wife Elizabeth, Sudbury. Jim will be lovingly remembered by his 10 grandchildren and two great-grandsons. He was the brother of Gordon (Colleen) Howatt, Londesborough and John (Marilyn) Howatt, Stratford.
Jim was predeceased by his son-in-law Ron Irwin and sister Helen Hodgert.
Jim was a well-respected beef farmer in Huron County for many years. He spent countless hours at the barn, at the Brussels sales and anywhere else he knew there would be cattle.
Jim enjoyed time with neighbours, friends and family, especially hearing about all of his grandchildren and their adventures. He will be dearly missed by all.
Friends were received at the Falconer Funeral Homes, Clinton on Monday, April 18. The funeral service was held on Tuesday. Interment was in Clinton Cemetery.
As expressions of sympathy memorial donations to the Heart & Stroke Foundation or the Canadian Cancer Society would be greatly appreciated.
