KIMMEL, Raymond

Posted: November 17th, 2022

KIMMEL RAYMOND “HOWARD” KIMMEL, was born in Drumheller, AB, July 3, 1958 and passed away November 7, 2022 at 64 years old, on route to Calgary Foothills Hospital.
Howard was predeceased by his parents, Raymond and Charlotte Kimmel and his sisters, Donna Walter and Terry McQuaker.
Howard will be lovingly remembered by his children: Jessie (Rob) McNabb, Ginger (Daniel) Wood, Angela (Mike) Onda and Terry (Sabrina) Lowen; special friend, Lucille Hobelsberger; grandchildren: Marti-Beth, Morgan, Maria-Ray, Memphis and Maverick McNabb, Makoy, Phoenix and Dax Wood, Trystin, Morgan, and Jordan Onda, and Samara, Mitchell and Bethany Lowen; and his siblings, Beverly (Rob) Callow, Nadine (Dave) Young and Harvey Kimmel as well as many nieces and nephews.
Howard had many friends and family, even though a large group of people was a “NO THANKS”, he enjoyed one-on-one with so many. He was a very generous soul; he was always ready to help when needed. He was quick to laugh and enjoyed joking around. Howard was extremely organized and everything he had sparkled. He had an amazing work ethic and was very motivated to go above and beyond. He loved seeing different places; being in the truck was work, but he enjoyed the scenery, the solitude and making acquaintances along the way. In recent years, he bought a Goldwing motorbike and rode it as much as he could with friends; he really loved that.
Howard you will be missed by so many of us. From your laugh, to your random comments that make us question what we’re doing at that particular moment, you were taken far too soon.
Rest In Peace Highway man. Love you.
A Celebration of Howard’s Life will be held at Jessie & Rob’s Ranch, north of North Battleford, SK, on Monday, July 3, 2023 at 2:00 P.M. All of Howard’s close family and friends are welcome to attend.
