He was born in Peguis First Nation, Manitoba on May 13, 1953. He lived in Peguis until the age of 11 years old then attended Dauphin Residential School. He then attended school in Winnipeg. He was well known for his profession as a drywaller. He also enjoyed working on vehicles and doing projects around the house & yard.

Howie was such a caring, kind and a fun-loving man. He loved watching sports especially his all time favorite team the Winnipeg Jets. He also enjoyed watching the Winnipeg Blue Bombers & the Toronto Blue Jays. Besides watching sports, his pastime was playing VLTs & so loved it when his grandbabies came over to visit their Papa who were his pride and joy!
