In an early evening hour on Tuesday, July 28, 2004, Howard Chenoweth, dearly loved husband of Margaret and father of Diane and Elaine passed away peacefully with his family by his side at the Nanaimo General Hospital.

Howard will be greatly missed by his loving wife Margaret Chenoweth of Ladysmith and daughters Diane Van Iderstine of Cochrane and Elaine Chenoweth of Victoria; grandchildren Drew Van Iderstine (Danna), Bruce Maniel (Deanne), Tobi Van Iderstine (Heather), Kevin Maniel, Kelli Bosteder (Joe); great-grandchildren Brooklyn, Kaisha, Brooke, Annastazia, Marshall.

Howard, son of Georgina and Norman Chenoweth was born in Angusville, Manitoba on November 18, 1918. His early schooling was accomplished in Russell and later he achieved the first of numerous educational degrees at United College in Winnipeg. An accomplished educator/educational administrator, Howard was presented with a number of awards throughout his career and earned the highest kudos from those who knew him best as husband and father.

For over fifteen years Howard and wife Margaret enjoyed living near Ladysmith in a most lovely country setting with two adoring felines Tai Chi and Patches. Their interesting lifestyle included a variety of hobbies and business ventures as well a numerous visiting opportunities with their family/friends.

An extremely clever and resourceful individual, throughout his lifetime Howard was deeply admired and respected for the depth of grasp of a wide range of complex and intriguing subjects. His zeal for in-depth study and interesting/informative discourse made his family and friends seek him out for many a stimulating debate.

A special thank you to his family doctor of many years, Dr. Bowen-Roberts of Ladysmith and to the staff of the Nanaimo General Hospital. Funeral Tuesday, August 3, 2004 at 11 am at Telford’s followed by burial in Ladysmith Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, donations to a charity of choice would be appreciated.
