HOWARTH, Wayne Stephen – Passed away peacefully at Brantford General Hospital on Wednesday, February 7, 2018 in his 77th year after a brief battle with cancer.
Wayne, beloved husband of Shirley, dear father of Gwen and Krista and adoring Poppa of Veronika, Avery and Alex. He will be missed by sisters in law Beverly Zatta and Florence Howarth, sister and brother in law Susan and Paul Lymburner, as well as nieces, nephews, extended family members and dear friends. Predeceased by parents Michael Jerry and Hazel, brother Jerry and sister Beverley.
Operating Howarth Piano Sales and Service, Wayne’s life’s work was tuning and repairing area pianos for over 55 years and was still working until late December. A fun loving jokester, he was an early morning regular at the gym and was in great shape until ill health took its toll. His loyalty and love of family and friends will not be forgotten as well as his crazy sense of humour.
Cremation has taken place and a private celebration of life will be held at a later date.
