It is with deep sadness and heartfelt grief that we announce the passing of Howard MacDonald, at the age of 71, on June 2, 2019. Howard passed away at St Joseph's Hospice in Sarnia after a brave battle with cancer. At his side were his children Jessie and Wesley and their mother Susan, his son Scott, and Howard’s dear friend Penny. He was predeceased by his parents Gordon and Ethel (Richardson) MacDonald.
Howard will be missed by his friends in Kettle Point, Elmira, St. Jacobs and Waterloo. Howard was an avid fast ball pitcher and hockey player in the Elmira and St. Jacobs area. He retired in Kettle Point after a long career in real estate in Kitchener-Waterloo. He enjoyed music and relaxing at his home near Lake Huron. He built his home in Kettle Point, and just completed a huge deck for outdoor living. He was very proud of his children and enjoyed their visits to his home.
His family would like to thank all the doctors, nurses and staff at St. Joseph’s Hospice in Sarnia. Also, thank you to Penny for all she did for him in the past months.
Cremation will take place. A Celebration of Life will be held in the Elmira area at a future date. Arrangements entrusted to the Dreisinger Funeral Home, Elmira.
Established in 1905 by Christian Dreisinger, the Dreisinger Funeral Home has been committed to serving Elmira and surrounding area with the care and attention only an independent family funeral home can provide.
