Loving Spouse of 62 years of Joan Leader (nee) Lefneski. Loving Father of: Jane Bidner (Chris), Joni Dool (Doug) Deceased Nov 30th 1992, Roy Leader, Chris Leader (Tonya). Loving Grandfather of: Craig, Brent, Jason Langlois. Clay Dool. Chris, Dillon Leader. Loving G.G of: Nevan, Nylah Langlois. Howie will be missed by many friends and family both in Ontario and British Columbia. His love for golf was exceeded only by his wit, sense of humour, love of Tim Hortons coffee, the ability to make others smile and laugh and his overwhelming love for being social. Howie in his youth played hockey and baseball. He also coached Juvenile Hockey in Acton Ontario in the 1960’s. He enjoyed just about any activity that involved being outdoors. Dad was not one for sitting in front of what he referred to as the “Idiot Box” (TV). He loved to laugh, tease...tell funny stories and had a limitless supply of jokes. He was never at a a loss for a quick comment. Howie’s giving, loving nature touched everyone he met. He had a fondness for helping children and in lieu of flowers, a donation in Howard Leader’s name to, would be greatly appreciated and a wonderful token and gesture on his behalf.
