Pawley dies at age 81

December 30th, 2015 . by William Baylis

Our dear member Howard Pawley died around 5:30 on Wednesday afternoon, December 30, 2015. Click here to read the article in the Windsor Star about his life and many activities, and here familiesfirst.funeraltechweb.com_tribute-ajax_print-obituary for a pdf copy of the lovely obituary from the website of Families First Funeral Home in Windsor. Howard spoke several times to the congregation, sharing wisdom about his experiences as a politician, cabinet minister, and Premier of Manitoba. After his political career in Manitoba, he became a professor of law and political science at the University of Windsor and generously donated hours of work to many important causes in the region and across Canada. His insight, friendship, and inspirational guidance will be sorely missed at the church.

Visitations are scheduled on Friday, January 8, in the afternoon from 3 to 5 PM and in the evening from 7 to 9 PM at Families First Funeral home on Dougall Ave. in Windsor, and a “Celebration of Life” service will be held in the Ambassador Auditorium of the CAW Centre at the University of Windsor on Saturday, January 9, 2016, at 11:30 AM.
