COXON, Howard Woodrow - Howard died peacefully in his sleep at the family farm, in his 92nd year, on Sunday, July 8th, 2007. Pre-deceased by his wife Paula, loving father to Marcus, Brian, Graeme and Carol. Father-in-law to Jonna and Bruce and grandfather to Sara-Katherine, Hanna, Sam, William and Nicholas. Loving brother to Jean Richmond-Watson and brother-in-law to Margot and Roberto Gualtieri and uncle to Eric, Inger and Domenic. Loving partner to Helga Goddard. Howard was very connected to his roots in Mexico, where he was born, in Tampico, in 1915. Returning with his parents to England, Howard went on to receive an M.A. in History from Cambridge. Howard left the UK after WWII, having served in the RAF as Squadron Leader, and with a spirit of adventure, arrived in Ottawa, where he married Paula Peters in 1950. Finding Canada exciting and full of promise, Howard began his career with Imperial Oil Ltd. in Toronto, and subsequently moved to B.C., where he encountered some of the greatest challenges of his career. Howard moved back to Toronto, and then to New York City in 1967, where he worked as Deputy Vice President of Marketing, Exxon Corporation, until his retirement in 1975. In 1979, Howard and Paula settled in Northumberland County, Ontario, on the farm chosen by Paula to be the family gathering point and base for their many travels in retirement. A man of great integrity, his wisdom, constancy, patience, and commitment will be greatly missed by all of us who knew and loved him. A remembrance gathering for Howard was held at the farm on July 12th. Condolences received at 10739301
