Obituary of Simon Howcroft
Simon Howcroft passed away suddenly at home on June 17, 2021, at the age of 61. Loving husband to Cindy Howcroft, and father of Jeremy (Jenny) Howcroft and Sarah (Jordan) Rowe. Cherished Papa to Richard Howcroft, Ellie Rowe, and Jack Rowe. Missed by his mother, Sheila Howcroft, and his siblings, Michelle (Randy) Lafontaine, Stephanie Howcroft, Nigel (Mary) Howcroft, Andrew (Nicolina) Howcroft, Tim Howcroft, Jonathan (Cathy) Howcroft, Doug (Trudy) Warren, and Howard Warren. Predeceased by his father, C. Michael Howcroft. He is also missed by his nieces, nephews, extended family and countless others whose lives he touched.
Simon had a generous and kind soul. He shared his love with family and friends, his time with those he could help, and his beer with anyone who came to visit. He was always willing to lend a hand to those needing help whether it was shoveling snow for the neighbours, hanging Christmas lights at Jeremy’s house, or, just recently, preparing the nursery for Jack’s arrival. When not helping others, his favourite way to spend an evening was with his brothers; talking and drinking beer. Simon has touched so many lives. We hope that even though we have lost a wonderful man that your memories of him will live on.
Essentials Cremation and Burial Services has been entrusted with arrangements (905-354-2133). A celebration of life will take place at a later date. He spent 25 years being a father figure to those who needed him as a Big Brother. Memorial donations made to the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada would be appreciated by the family. Online condolences may be shared to Simon's tribute page at EssentialsNiagara.com.
