Photos of the dedication and ribbon-cutting for our new
Howard Carpluk Memorial Park

Howie was a living example of how a life should be lived and if all people would live their lives as he did his, the world would be a far better place.

He always had a kind word, always spoke to people as if they were the only ones in the room, he was a gentleman and was passionate about everything he did.

He gave his life in service of others and there is no greater epitaph than that  We are truly proud to have known him and will miss him always.
