Obituary of Howard Robert Lansing
Howard Robert Lansing
(April 12, 1953 - March 12, 2022)
Howard Robert Lansing, age 68, suddenly passed away March 12, 2022 in Daysland, Alberta on the family farm where he grew up and raised his own family.
Howard grew up living the life of a farm boy and was raised by two hard working parents who had a real passion for farming and sports. Early on in Howard’s life, there were three places you could find him, in the field, on the baseball diamond, or in the hockey rink. In his 20’s and 30’s, he met his former wife Jane Dewald and had three children - those who he instilled his love for sports and the outdoors. His gentle words and love he had for his children and grandchildren never went unnoticed. Howard was not only devoted to his family but was also to his friends. For a man of few words, he loved to reminisce about the good ol’ days over a coffee, drink or hockey game with his friends or children. Howard had many fond times with his children and grandchildren and what he leaves behind with them is many wonderful memories. Howard will always be remembered as the quiet man with a kind and calm demeanour.
Howard is survived by his loving children, son Mike Lansing (Laura); daughter Caryn Bouchard (Blaine); grandchildren Trent and Jordy; son Richard Lansing (Chayla); his sister, Janet Thomas (Bernard); his brothers Mervin Lansing (Trudy), Morris Lansing (Judy); former wife Jane Dewald, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, in-laws and friends. He was predeceased by his father Robert Lansing, and mother Ione Lansing.
A Funeral Mass was held Tuesday, March 22, 2022 at Our Lady of the Prairies Roman Catholic Church in Daysland.
