  • Genealogical Notes 
    • PRIDHAM, Howard His struggles with Alzheimer's and cancer have ended. Howard passed away at Hill House Hospice, in Richmond Hill, on February 14, 2008. He will be remembered by his children Murray and Maryann and his granddaughter Shyann Stuart with love and fond memories. Howard was born 81 years ago in a log cabin on a farm in Stayner Ontario, the youngest of 10 children. At the age of 14 he moved to the Queensway and began his life long work as a market gardener. It was there that he met and married his beloved Helen, his partner and best friend for 59 years. During their years of living in Woodbridge and after, he dedicated 57 years of service to Woodbridge United Church. He was recognized by the Toronto Fruit and Vegetable Growers Assocation for his contribution to horticulture. He took great pride in his summer home at Bolsover Ontario. Howard leaves us with so many memories, his beaming smile, his crushing handshake, his jolly disposition, those thousands of bunches of radishes and green onions, the games of euchre, his phase of baking butter tarts and carrot cake, his love of family gatherings and his hard work ethic. Friends may call at the MARSHALL FUNERAL HOME, 10366 Yonge St., Richmond Hill (4th traffic light north of Major Mackenzie Drive) on Sunday, from 2-4 p.m. only.
