Trask, Lorne “Howard”

July 10, 1935 – May 24, 2020
at the age of 84 years:

It is with much sadness that we the family announce the sudden and unexpected passing of our father, brother and much loved grandfather, HOWARD TRASK in Enderby, B.C. on May 24, 2020.

Howard was born in Meadow Lake, Sask. living on the family farm in Rapid View, Sask., just outside of Meadow Lake.   He relocated to Quesnel, B.C. at an early age looking for work where he subsequently married, raised his family and enjoyed a long and successful career with West Fraser Mills.  He and his wife Ruth moved to Enderby, B.C. in 2006 to enjoy their retirement years golfing, curling and being active in the local seniors’ community centre.

Howard was sadly pre-deceased by his wife Ruth (2019), his daughter Sandra (2004) and his first wife Beverley  (1987).

He is survived by his children – David (Narda) Trask, Kelowna, B.C., Vicki (Harold) Wheeler, Quesnel, B.C,  Debra (Nick) Werner, Salmon Arm, B.C.,  Sheila (Tim) Patchett), Quesnel, B.C.,  Robert (Sheila) Telkamp),  Quesnel, B.C., Caron Telkamp, Quesnel, B.C.,  his 3 brothers John (Beth) Trask, Coquitlam, B.C., Ron (Bernie) Trask,  Prince George B.C.& Hugh (Karen) Trask,  Syndney B.C., 12 grandchildren, 16 great grandchildren and a large extended family.

He was loved by all and his warm smile and kind heart will be forever missed.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions a service date and time will be announced in the near future.


  1. Howard welcomed me into his home when I came to Quesnel to begin my first job after graduation. He and his family accommodated me for three months until I found my own place and provided use of the family car before I got my own. I will always be grateful for his friendliness and generosity

  2. I shared a golf cart with Howard twice a week for the last 2 yrs. and we became good friends. Everyone in our Mon/Fri group enjoyed time with Howard. He always had a chuckle and never let anything upset his upbeat mood. Will miss you my friend.


  3. On behalf of Lloyd and Marg Gale and family condolences to the Trask family. Howard will be truly missed.
