Keith William Howitt

HOWITT, Keith William - Born on July 27, 1949 in Preeceville. SK. He passed away peacefully on August 21, 2016 with his family by his side. Keith was the only son born to Connie and Bill Howitt. Keith was blessed with four children and eight grandchildren. Keith went to school in Nipawin until he turned 15. At that time he started his career as a beekeeper for Bob Knox. Keith loved to work side by side with his dad. From his first summer job shoveling grain at CSP to becoming a beekeeper and finding that passion they both shared. Keith never stopped working, having various jobs throughout his life such as beekeeper for Knox Apiaries, yard foreman at Pinecrest Lumber and later after retirement he became yard foreman at the Co-op. One of Keith's hobbies turned into his part-time job. He loved cutting grass, growing a garden and planting flowers - AKA Howie's Lawn and Garden. If you couldn't find Keith at one of these jobs you would find him in the bush with his chainsaw. The indoor part of Keith could be found at the Bowling Alley. He slapped a lot of hands and made lots of friends. Dad has taught us many things, but most importantly a great work ethic and to put family first. Left to treasure his memory are his daughters: Tara (Darcy), Randi and Danyelle, Erin (Justin), Casen, Cale and Colbie, Rebeca (Curtis), Tyler and Carter, his son Keith Jr. (Shantelle) and Avery, as well as his sisters, brothers-in-law and many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. A memorial service was held on Thursday, August 25, 2016 at the Coventry Funeral Chapel in Nipawin, SK. Interment will follow at a later date. Memorial tributes may be made to STARS Air Ambulance.

So sad to hear of the passing of Keith. I will miss our occasional chats. I remember him as being a real pest while Betty and I were deeply involved in one phantasy or another. Cherish all the memories.
