Aarion Micheal Howden 1973 — 2020

Aarion Micheal Howden

Aarion Micheal Howden of Kamloops passed away on Saturday, February 29, 2020 at 47 years of age. He will be lovingly remembered by his mother Barbara Forde of Kamloops, step father Larry Forde of Fort St. John, sister Monique Bolen of Kamlooops, spouse Karen Howden of Surrey, children Cameron Howden of Chilliwack, Carson Howden of Chilliwack, and Tyler Howden of Surrey, grandfather Ross (Theresa) Howden of Kamloops, aunts Linda (Larry) Bissell of Heffley Creek (Godmother), and Patricia (James) Broad of Ashcroft,  step brother Jake Forde of Kamloops and step brother Tyler Forde of Vancouver, numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, great nieces, and best friend, Jason Nielson. He was predeceased by his Grandma, Marie Howden.

Aarion was born and raised in Kamloops. He moved to the lower mainland, then returned home to Kamloops. Aarion’s goal in life was to always excel at what he did, always doing his best. He will be remembered for his ability to make others laugh and making others feel good by using small gestures with big meanings. Aarion loved music, camping at East Barriere Lake, baseball, playing practical jokes (mostly on his sister), dirt bike riding, scuba diving, video games, Dad and son bike rides, long drives and animals. He loved his cookies and coca-cola. Aarion’s best moments in life were the times spent with family and close friends. 

The Celebration of Aarion’s life will take place at 1:00 pm on Saturday, March 14, 2020 in the Kamloops Funeral Home, 285 Fortune Drive. 

The family would prefer casual dress. Memorial donations in Aarion’s name may be made to the Canadian Mental Health Association.
