Howard Gould 

6 April 1936 - 9 January 2016

It is with great sorrow the family announces the passing of their father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and great uncle Howard “Howie” Gould of Yellowknife. On the morning of January 9, 2016 he succumbed to metastasized prostate cancer passing away at home surrounded by family members and his best friend Bear.

Howard was born April 6, 1936 in East York Township, Toronto Ontario. He met the love of his life (Josie) in 1958 in Wainwright, Alberta while serving in the Canadian military. In 1964, he moved to Yellowknife with his family after securing a job at Cominco Inc. (Con Mine).  After retiring from Cominco in 1993, Howard established his own company - Howie’s Delivery Service. It was with this adventure that he thoroughly enjoyed meeting so many different people, the diverse conversations, and community interactions.

Many have described Howard as jolly, took the time to chat, charmer, great sense of humour with an infectious laugh. “He was an honest gentleman who always had a good word.” Howard was an active Elks Member, Legion Member, loved his pets and sports. He was most passionate about hockey - the Toronto Maple Leafs (don’t hold it against him…they are going to win the Cup one day he would say).

A celebration of life service will be held at 1:00 p.m., Saturday, January 16, 2016 at the Elks Club downstairs – all are welcome. Memorial  donations may be made to the Yellowknife SPCA - www.nwtspca.com or Prostrate Cancer Canada – www.prostratecancer.ca. Those wishing to send messages of sympathy to the family may do so by emailing messages@mckennafuneral.comor at the celebration of life service.

Howie is survived by his daughters Gwendolyn (Aaron) Gould – Yellowknife, Dawn Gould - Sidney BC, grandchildren Tyler (Kayla) Gould – Yellowknife, William Budz, Justin (Allison) Budz – Sidney BC, sisters Betty Strople, Barb Morgan, Pat Loverock, many nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews and loving puppy, Bear.  He was predeceased by his wife Josie Gould (Yasinksi) August 24, 2008, sisters Joan, Sally, Gwen, and brother Billy.
