On the 9th April 2020, my father; Rob Howie passed away as the pink full moon was to be seen in the night sky depicting the start of spring! What a husband, father, grandfather, uncle, great uncle, father-in-law, great father-in-law and was soon to be great great grandfather, he was! There are so many memories and moments to be remembered and above all the incredible light that my father was in everyone’s life! For 56 years my father has been part of my life and has been such an inspiration to me I owe so much of the person I have become to his guidance and his belief in following your dream and, to always get back on the horse and to try again! He was always there for us as children a good listening ear and, always ready to help or in my sister’s case, get her out of trouble before our mother found out! He has been an incredible grandfather and his grandchildren will take his wisdom and memories with them for the rest of their lives! He enjoyed life to the full and was always ready to join in and celebrate where ever he could. He had a beautiful singing voice which he used all his life starting out as a chorister at King’s School, in Canterbury Cathedral to recently being part of the choir in the church and Rising Voices to whom he has asked us to make donations. My father struggled greatly with the loss of our beloved Jane and we have peace with the knowledge that he has joined her again. He touched many people’s hearts and will always be the guiding light we will need as we all continue our life’s journey without him. Daddy rest in peace!
