1939 - 2017
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Howard George Webster of Kamloops on September 9th, 2017 at 78 years. He is survived by his children Daryll (Dawn) Webster of Kamloops, BC, Shelley (Jerry) Baker of Chetwynd, BC, Denise Webster (Cliff Bent) of Kamloops, BC, and Katherine (Marcel) Desrochers of Penticton, BC. Howard is also survived by his many grandchildren, including great-grandchildren, and his sister Mary Humber-Mackay. Howard was predeceased by his wife Doreen, and his daughter Shelby Kendra (Geraldine Janice) Brown.
Howard was born in Hardisty, AB, on July 14, 1939. He joined the army, at 17 years old, where he went on to become a medic, as well as boxing champion. Howard married Donna in August 15, 1959 and they went on to have 5 children, 1 son and 4 daughters. They moved to Vancouver in 1965, and then to Kamloops in the summer of ‘69, where Howard was already helping paint the Plaza Hotel after it was first built.
Howard owned and operated a few different businesses in the Kamloops area over many years. He also played in a few different bands, with the most memorable being the Roadrunners, and then the Cave Brothers. Howard eventually moved to Sechelt, where he became the Administrator of Shorn Cliff Care Home.
Howard spent most of his last 10 years in Kelowna before finally coming back to Kamloops. Howard moved back to Kamloops to enjoy his family, painting, model planes and golf.
Howard was a very talented, lively, and happy soul, as the many people drawn to him in his life would attest. He was very much loved, and will be missed greatly by all.
A Celebration of Howard’s Life will be held at 2:00 pm on Saturday, September 16, 2017, at 561 Gordonel Rd., Kamloops, BC.
