Charles Howard Atkinson

April 30, 1921 - October 12, 2015


.It is with heavy hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of Charles Howard Atkinson on Monday October 12, 2015 at the Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria, BC.  Born on April 30, 1921 in Burlington, Ontario. Predeceased by his eldest son Charles Douglas Atkinson (Pat) in 2009.  Lovingly remembered by his wife of 73 years, Kathryn Elizabeth Atkinson, son David Howard Atkinson, daughter Nancy Kathryn Bissillion (Dan) 9 grandchildren and 23 great grandchildren.  Howard and Betty met in 1934 and married in 1942.  They raised their family in Hamilton Ontario until 1952 where they moved their family to Southern California where Howard was a Senior Account Agent for Allstate Insurance.  They returned to British Columbia in 1974, where they have lived in Shawingan Lake since their return.  Although winters you would find Howard and Betty enjoying the sun in Yuma Arizona with many friends.  Howard loved to work on small engines and could always be found tinkering with someone’s lawnmower or chainsaw.  He spent a few years sharpening skates or serving drinks at the Kerry Park Arena and working on engines at the Mill Bay Marina.  Those that knew him will tell you that next to his family his other true love was golf and fishing.  He spent many days and hours on the golf course or in the boat.  There will be no service at Howard’s request.
