    I’m so sorry to hear of Jack’s passing. He and Pat were a big part in welcoming Ray and I to the Okanagan 25 years ago. I’ve never met anyone who could make friends so easily. My sincere sympathy.

  • Randy Nagel says:

    Hi Jack, Debbie and families… sorry to hear of your loss. This is going back a bit, but I always remember your dad as having a smile on his face and always easy to talk to. I remember you guys and the LaRose’s use to come to Lakeshore Inn Resort for holidays.

  • Kandis Pitre says:

    It was an absolute pleasure to come to work and be greeted everyday with Howey’s big smiles and jokes. We loved pestering eachother daily, funny man he was. He is truly missed by all of us here at LVL. Rest easy Howey. Much love to the family.
