Robin Nicholas Howdle.
Memorial Service: Thursday, May 29, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. from the Sneath-Strilchuk Funeral Chapel in Dauphin, Manitoba.
Donations: Parkland Humane Society.
Peacefully, Robin Nicholas Howdle, at the age of 58, passed from this world at his home in Dauphin, Manitoba on May 22nd, 2014.
He is survived by his loving wife Debbie of 19 years and sons Trent and Travis. Brothers Bill (Vi), Eric (Lynda), Bryan (Victoria), sister Anita, brothers-in-law Ronald, Keith (Doris), Ross, Daryle and sister-in-law Karen and numerous nieces and nephews.
Robin was born March 5, 1956 in Snow Lake, Manitoba and at a young age moved to Dauphin. In his younger years he was an avid hockey player, at one time playing for the Dauphin Kings and coaching youngsters. Through the years if the Kings were playing you knew he would be there in the stands cheering them on.
His entire working career he worked for the local Ford Dealership. The dealership may have changed owners and names several times, but one of the things that did not change was Robin. His dedication and hard work earned him the respect of co-workers and customers alike.
As the years advanced, Robin became more content with a quiet home life occasionally going fishing or golfing, but especially enjoying time with his sons.
A man with a heart of gold, he will be missed by many.
If friends so desire, donations may be made to the Parkland Humane Society.
Arrangements were entrusted to Sneath-Strilchuk Funeral Services with funeral homes in Dauphin, Roblin and Ste. Rose du Lac.
