Howard McElhaw

November 10, 1956 ~ February 12, 2021 (age 64)


With broken hearts we announce the unexpected passing of Howard McElhaw on February 12th, 2021. He passed peacefully at his home in High River, Alberta. A life well lived to the fine age of sixty-four. Howard will be greatly missed by family and friends.


Howard is survived by his only child and best friend, Troy McElhaw; three brothers, Dave McElhaw, Tony Allen, and Michael Allen; and both fathers, Clontarf McElhaw and Chester Allen. Howard was born in 1956 in London, Ontario to Joan Ann McCullough and Clontarf McElhaw.


Howard was a magnificent skier, someone who truly impressed with every turn. He loved the outdoors and used every opportunity to bag another mountain or raft another rapid. His wishes were to have his ashes spread on his favorite ski hill. 


By trade, Howard was an Engineer, 3rd Class for Alberta Health Services South Health Campus in Calgary, Alberta. 


A Celebration of Life will be held at an unknown future date discerning provincial health regulation. Condolences may be sent to Troy McElhaw at, or registered at
