Richard Bevan "Bev" Howard

January 13, 1931 - April 21, 2021

Peacefully at the Northumberland Hills Hospital in Cobourg on Wednesday, April 21, 2021, Bev Howard at 90 years of age. Bev will be greatly missed by his family; Jan, Judy, Cathy, Jo, Luke, Abigail, Jaime, Jake, Joe, Barb, Paul, Anja, and Josh. Predeceased by his first wife Pat, daughter Sue, and eight older siblings. Bev recently said that he had his family, what else did he need. He was a husband, a father, a grandfather, a high school teacher (Go West!), a Grand Life Master at bridge, an athlete (golf, curling, football, softball), a coach and a teller of many funny and fewer not so funny jokes. He will be remembered by all those whose life he impacted. Please share a story or smoke a cigar on his behalf. Bev’s family would like to thank the NHH team on floor 2B of the Medical Surgical Unit including nurses Katelyn, Kyleah, & Lisa as well as Drs. Mulé & Knackstedt with a special shout out to nurse Pamela who guided and supported the family through his final hours. There will be a cremation with private family arrangements. Those wishing may make a memorial donation to the Northumberland Hills Hospital Foundation.

My condolences to the family of Bev Howard. You don't know me, but I feel like I knew him - we've lived around the corner from his apartment for years, and I always knew it was spring when I smelled cigar smoke :) I have missed seeing him reading and smoking on his balcony. I imagine you have years of happy memories, and hope they are of some comfort at this difficult time ~ Shelagh

I'm so sorry for your loss, I hardly know what to say. I feel his loss too. We must have gone over thousands of bridge hands together after playing. I'll miss that, and so much more. RIP, my friend.

Jan Bangs - May 3, 2021

Dear family, I was fortunate to have Mr. Howard as a teacher and enjoyed his classes very much. I still remember the first time the office called up on the in-classroom phone and he picked up and said, "Joe's poolroom- shoot." He was encouraging and alway smiling. My parents also enjoyed their time with him playing bridge and at the Senior's games. He will be fondly remembered. Thanks Mr. Howard. With sincerest condolences to your family.

Annie Hoare - April 30, 2021

Sending wishes for peace during this difficult time. May your many memories bring you comfort. My Dad - Mike Hoare - curled with Bev many years ago.

Barbara Bull - April 30, 2021

I was in his accounting class in ‘73. He arranged my work week with what turned out to be my first office job. Great teacher. My condolences to his family.

Jeff Knight - April 30, 2021

My twin brother and I enjoyed Mr.Howard’s accounting classes. He was an inspiration. I remember him bringing in Artie Shaw records to play during class for the knight twins. Our deepest condolences to the family and the ‘West’ community.

Winston Emery - April 29, 2021

I played golf with Bev. Travelling to the course or waiting to tee off, he was a lively raconteur - telling jokes and entertaining us with stories of Cobourg people and events. I was impressed that many knew and admired him. Sincere sympathy to the family.

Linda Laliberte - April 28, 2021

Jan, Judy and Cathy, my deepest condolences. I met Bev first as Susie's father and then through curling with him in my adult years. He was a wonderful man and a delightful story teller. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Linda (Briden) and David Laliberte

Brandon Ringham - April 28, 2021

Jan and family, I’m so saddened to hear of Bev’s passing. I’ll never forget the days walking home from school and seeing Bev on the balcony (often with a cigar!) reading, as tranquil as ever. As I’ve grown from a teenager to a young adult, I’m finally beginning to understand his ever-present lax attitude! While these idle memories were never momentous, they’re something I’ll always remember and cherish. I hope that you and your family are keeping happy, healthy, and safe during these trying times. Sincerely, Brandon Ringham from Unit #7

Joanne Dillon-McKay - April 27, 2021

My condolences to all the Howard Family on the loss of Bev. My parents, Del & Mary Ellen, shared many happy times over the years with Bev and Pat and had so much fun when they were invited to the Howards for a game of bridge or a party or a visit. Bev's name came up often in our home when we lived in Cobourg and my parents had many funny stories that Bev had shared with them that made them laugh. They loved their friendship with Bev and Pat! Wishing all the Howard Family a lifetime of happy memories as you remember Bev. Joanne Dillon-McKay & family

Mary Ito - April 27, 2021

My most sincere condolences to Jan and the Howard family on Bev's passing. Bev was such a "West" supporter and whenever he came into my clinic, we would sing the West anthem together. He was always quick with a joke, his tie always had a hole in it from smoking his cigar and he was most happy when bragging about his family! He certainly was a character and will be missed. His spirit will live on in the memories of all his students whether it was at the West or at the bridge table.

Christopher Sharp - April 26, 2021

I always enjoyed talking to Bev, at the West and whenever we met at various arts events and socials. He was one of a kind and anyone who met him was better off for having done so. My condolences to Jan and the family. I will definitely smoke a cigar in his memory.

Marg McAulay - April 26, 2021

Bev was fun to be around. Sending loving thoughts and prayers. Marg & John

Rodger and Bonnie Harp - April 26, 2021

We all have fond memories of Bev. A unique guy. One of a kind. We will miss him.

Scott Tuttle - April 26, 2021

I would like to send my condolences to the Howard family. Bev taught me accounting in high school, then I use to see him at Kawartha Downs. I think we spent more times talking about horses then accounting in class, but it was "make sure you have your homework done". We have seen each other for years at the Best Western, Kelly's and talk about bridge, or any other sport...may he rest in peace.

Stephen Wilson - April 26, 2021

Sorry to hear of Mr Howard's passing. I remembered his name and face immediately upon seeing the notice. I had few good memories of High School with the exception of Math Class. Mr Howard helped me quite a bit to enjoy and learn Math problems. Assisted me after class on a few occasions. He was a teacher that truly enjoyed his job and I have always thought fondly of him.

I am sorry to hear of Bev’s passing. I don’t remember if it was at the curling club or the golf club we met, but we spent many enjoyable hours at both places.

Alje Kamminga - April 25, 2021

Enjoyed Bev's company at the bridge table as an occasional partner and opponent for years. Remember some post-game gatherings fondly. He was a true character and will be missed. Our condolences to all the family. Alje and Paula Kamminga, Okanagan Valley, BC

Janet Irvine - April 25, 2021

Bev has been a dear friend for decades and I will treasure my memories of his enthusiastic love of teaching and the West Collegiate, his enduring love of family, and his unwavering love of life. My condolences and warm wishes to his entire family.

Marion and Doug Gellatly - April 25, 2021

Marion and I send our regrets at Bev’s passing. He was a person who loved life and made the most of it. Our memories are strongest in those early days when Bev’s family lived on Highway 10 and then on Freeman Drive and we enjoyed so much family time together in Port Hope. Pat and Bev were stars in our 1930’s birthday gang. He was quick to let us know that he always carried two decks of cards in his pocket for a possible spontaneous bridge game. Returning from a vacation in the USA, Bev was quick to let us know that he had brought back packages of Port’s cigars - they were wine soaked - and so much more. Bev was spontaneous in loving the people he lived and worked with. He will be missed by his many friends.

May and Andy Anderson - April 25, 2021

We first met Bev in 1967 at the West Collegiate. We appreciated his warm smile and his unique sense of humour. Our condolences to Jan and to his girls.

peter Hayward - April 25, 2021

A good friend and bridge partner who will be sorely missed but never forgotten. A verse that I have that was given to me by my father is very appropriate and reads as follows: "For when the One Great Scorer comes to write against your name. He writes - not that you Won or Lost - but How You Played the Game." (Newbolt). Condolences to Jan and the family.

judy HUDDLESTON - April 25, 2021

Mr. Howard was my teacher at CDCI West, what a great guy who helped me see math in a new way. Always willing to help. Always had a smile. Ever remembered. my thoughts are with his family and friends.

Jeanine Clarey - April 24, 2021

My condolences to Mr. Howard’s family. Mr. Howard taught me business courses in the early seventies at C.D.C.I. West. He taught me many life long lessons. Thank you Mr. Howard. Sincerely Jeanine La Fontaine -Clarey

timothy fawcett - April 24, 2021

Wonderful man and family friend....My dad's stories of coaching football with Bev and losing to him in all the teacher football and hockey pools...Fondest memory was when we upset the ontario champ curling team in Kawartha spiel...West team was basketball and volleyball players who only curled in gym class....He chuckled and laughed all the way home, stogie in mouth....

Ralph Hewitt - April 24, 2021

Jan condolence on Bev 's passing I remember him well from lawn and short mat bowling. Ralph

Rosemary Nicholson - April 24, 2021

Jan & Family - I first met Bev when I took bridge lessons from him. He introduced me to the Cobourg Duplicate Bridge Club and always took credit for my success. He was always happy to pass along tips for improvement. I was also lucky enough to play a few rounds of golf with him. I just had to dodge the cigar smoke! Fond memories.

Harry Knapper - April 24, 2021

Hi Jan I remember with great fondness, Bev's inscrutable smile, that twinkle in the eye, and that casual sitting arrangement. Pot lucks were always an occasion. Good memories Harry

Cecilia A Nasmith - April 24, 2021

I took an adult accounting course at the West (Go, Vikings!), and my fond memories of Mr. Howard stayed with me far longer than the accounting - a wonderfully patient and enthusiastic teacher. Thinking of the Howard family at this time

Linda Jim, Wong - April 24, 2021

Jan and the family, so sorry to hear of your loss. Bev will be remembered with love by many past students and so many friends. Thinking of you Jan and sending HUGS Linda

Anne Leahy - April 24, 2021

I didn't know Bev very well as here wasn't bowling much when we met, but he graciously gave me his bowls saying that they should be played instead of just sitting in a box. It kind of explains what kind of man he was. My sympathy to Jan and the family.

Judy Elliott - April 24, 2021

So sorry to hear of Mr. Howard’s passing. I just went by the apartment this week and wondered how he was doing with a smile on my face. A great teacher and a crazy joke teller. Always made mention of my last name & his first being the same with a smirk saying he’d had the “Bevan” name longer! With caring and respect I’ll give a nod to his well used balcony as I pass by. Condolences to his family.

Elaine Wallace - April 24, 2021

I was very sorry to hear about the passing of Bev. I met Bev a few years ago at the Cobourg Bridge Club. I was new to the club and he was very welcoming. Bev would often have great articles and bridge lesson notes that he would share. He was always very kind and gracious. I especially loved his stories. One that stands out is that when we talked about having trouble sleeping he said “no problem - I get a good book, a cigar and a glass of wine and go out on my balcony”. I told him that I would have to try that! I will remember Bev fondly.

Tito DiMarco - April 23, 2021

It is not often that a loss hits me like this one. Mr. Howard was to say the least a "classic". An excellent teacher and a man I respected in High School and to this day. The man with the "outty" and the turtle neck which taught me accounting ... skills that I still use to this day. He made it fun as we played Monopoly and we had to record every transaction in our ledger. My wife and I often waved to Mr. Howard on his balcony as he read his book and smoked his "stogey". The world was certainly a better place with Mr. Howard.

Margaret Robinson - April 23, 2021

I send my sincere condolences to Bev’s family. At Cobourg Bridge Club Bev a very good player but didn’t take himself too seriously - he always lightened the play with his bidding and his jokes. I had some interesting conversations with him about my grandson’s support of Manchester United. Bev was one of a kind and will be very much missed.

Joanne Drury - April 23, 2021

Bev was always a breath of fresh air in the hallowed halls of CDCI West. I had the distinct pleasure of working with him for many years. He would often stroll into the music room for a dance or a song. He always complimented the group that was rehearsing or class that was in session. He regularly brought me cassette tapes and videos of his favourite music and performers. I have the cassettes to this day. He provided an energetic and unmatched vocal of the West song at many an assembly. My sincere condolences to his family. Rest in Peace, Bev!!!!!!!

Eileen Sheppard - April 23, 2021

Jan and Family, I'm so sorry to hear of the loss your Dad. The memories that all of you will be able to reflect on and laugh about will make some days easier. Thinking of you all during this difficult time. Eileen Sheppard

Diana Storen - April 23, 2021

I was sorry to hear of Bev's passing. We spent many years teaching together at the West. I especially remember Bev playing the role of the Unknown Comic in the school's own version of the television programme Gong Show. Bev was such a good sport when it came to part of his costume: a bag over his head! The actor who played the part in the TV show came from Nova Scotia. Rest in peace, Bev,

Fran Marsh - April 23, 2021

Cannot believe I won't see him any more on your balcony reading a book and smoking his cigar. He was a neighborhood icon. My sincere condolences to Jan and his family. May you find comfort in your many happy memories of a long and well-lived life.

Susan and Dennis Snider - April 23, 2021

Bev will be missed by family, friends and community. As newcomers to the bridge club a few years ago, he made us feel very welcome. Bev always had a funny comment or a trivia question about films or music from way back when. What a guy; what a guy.

Jennifer Peristy - April 23, 2021

It is my prayer that God will comfort you and your whole family during this sad time. Keeping you in our prayers as you mourn the loss of your father and grandfather. Our deepest sympathies, and condolences during this difficult time.

john black - April 23, 2021

Jayne Duncan - April 22, 2021

Bev will be missed at the bridge table. He was my first teacher. He taught lessons at the Cobourg YMCA. It was a beginners class he was talking about doubles I didn’t even know we got 13 cards. He was so kind and patient as a teacher. He was at duplicate bridge and would always say here is my student. I will think of him fondly. Bev I know wherever you are you have a deck of cards and are playing bridge. Condolences to his family fortunate to have him for 90 years. Sincerely. Jayne Duncan

Brian Gough - April 22, 2021

Mr. Howard was a great teacher who treated his students as equals and upon graduation preferred to be referred to as Bev. He was a big influence on my life and along with many of the teachers at the West in the 70's made learning fun. It was not only a place to learn but also to grow as a person.

Dianne lee - April 22, 2021

I was so very sorry to hear of Mr Howard’s passing. I had him for a teacher at the West business math I always enjoyed his classes. I still remember him telling our class that him and his wife just had a baby he was so happy. He also played golf with my husband Brian at Dalewood. Condolences to all the family he will be missed.

Margaret GoereeWright - April 22, 2021

Bev was a wonderful partner and human being he will be sorely missed at the bridge club if and when we are back to normal. Our sincere condolences John and Margaret Wright

June, Donna and Shirley Sandercock - April 22, 2021

Bev was definitely a character and always laughing and sharing stories. His renditions of the CDCI West song in costume at the assemblies showing school spirit. I can still see him on that stage belting it out. It's been a few years since I've seen him but my sister would see him when he came into the salon to pick up/drop off Jan (Mayfair). He was a great human being and love of life that was infectious. Please accept our deepest sympathies on the passing of Bev. R.I.P Mr. Howard.

Edna - April 22, 2021

He was a supporter and guide through my blundering with duplicate bridge in the early days. Very supportive. He will be missed

Very sad to hear about Bev's passing. While we didn't get to know him very well since we became part of the little condo community we know how much he meant to Jan and the rest of the family and our sincerest condolences go out to you all.

Joanne Watters - April 22, 2021

When John and I joined the Cobourg Bridge Club in 1994 one of the first bridgers we met was Bev, “what a guy” “what a guy”. There certainly don't make many in his mold these days. We will miss you, Bev, and all the little extras you gave to our Bridge Club

Peter and Pat Hoisak - April 22, 2021

At my first day playing at the Cobourg Bridge Club, I met the guy and really liked him. The many condolences mention all his likeable traits and skills. We enjoyed his, and Jan's, company at many CFUW's Couples Gourmet Diners. I had the honour of playing golf with Bev for several years and having his company on our golf cart. I never saw a player exercise his Mulligans as fast as Bev. His crowning golf achievement was a Hole in One at Pine Ridge. I loved his expression, " what a game, what a game" ! Our condolences to you Jan and family. May he rest in peace and bring you fond memories of this great guy.

Stephan Alexander - April 22, 2021

Enjoyed many a good game of bridge with Bev and a few not so good games but always wildly entertaining remember one game we played on BBO and we bid six slams to win the match always great fun you will be missed

Ron Sheppard - April 22, 2021

I was surprised and saddened by the news of Bev's passing. I met Bev at the Cobourg Bridge Club over 13 years ago and golfed many times at the Cobourg Creek Club. He always had a story and a cigar on the golf course. He was truly one of the nice guys and a competitive but fun player at the bridge table. Thoughts and sympathy to his family and I hope he can enjoy a nice Montecristo cigar whereever he is.

Peter Giannandrea - April 22, 2021

It was an honour to know Bev. I met him at the bridge club, where his enthusiasm for the game was second to none, and had the pleasure of some time with him away from the table where he was enthusiastic about life generally. Always great fun. Our condolences to Jan and the family.

Libby Orovan - April 22, 2021

What a loss to all of us. He was not special only to his family but to all of us at the Cobourg Duplicate Bridge Club. He was such a positive and fun loving person. If Bev missed a day at the bridge club we all noticed his absence. To his family, know that he was loved by all.

Nicole Corbeil - April 22, 2021

Sincerest condolences to all of Bev's family. Bev taught me bridge from scratch when I moved to Port Hope 27 years. He made the game so interesting that I was hooked which led to many years of playing and making a lot of friends in a new town. He was a lot of fun and will be terribly missed by many.

manon samis - April 22, 2021

Oh Jan, our hearts bleed for you, Charles and I along with the boys loved Bev and for you very much, this is why our hearts bleed with pain. You and Bev were are greatest neighbors ever. Charles remembers when we bought him the churchill cigar from Mexico and how he said smoke it by the light of a full moon. Praying he enjoyed it. He surely will be missed. Bless his heart and you Jan

Peter and Suzanne Delanty - April 22, 2021

Sad to hear of Bev’s passing . He loved life and enjoyed it to the fullest . His infectious humour and warm , positive personality will be missed by those who had the privilege to know him . Bev had a rather unique and effective teaching style . His students loved his classes . His rendition of the West Collegiate’s school song, sung at a school assembly complete with bowler hat, was a “ must see. “ and encompassed completely the school’s great spirit . To his family , our condolences. He will be fondly remembered by all who knew him .

Oh Mr. Howard my favorite teacher of all time for math. He taught me a different kind of math lol....every week he would ask me to pick him up a horse racing schedule. Then he did all his little math figuring on it hand to me the end of the week with cash and told me what to bet on saturday night. I learnt pretty fast to just place his bets and none for me because when i handed him his winnings on mondays i always got a cut. He was friends with my mom and dad at the curling club as well. I still to this day tell people about my math teacher....god speed Mr. H
