Howard Rudolph Titchkosky

1944 - 2022

The Titchkosky family is saddened to announce the loss of Howard AKA “Big T,” who passed away peacefully on April 24, 2022 in his 77th year at the St. Boniface Hospital. Beloved husband of 51 years to Shirley Titchkosky (nee Link) of Morden, MB; truly missed by his daughters, Leanne Campbell and Rhonda (Steve) Plett and his son and farming partner, Dwayne (Angie) Titchkosky. Grandpa Howard’s absence will be deeply felt by his grandchildren: Caitlyn, Erica, Gus, Rogan, and Connor.

Howard was born in Morden of Celia and Rudolph Titchkosky, on September 3, 1944, Howard was the oldest of five children: Darlene Smith, Les, Dennis, and Doug. Howard was educated at Alexandria School in the 2-6 District and farmed his entire life until he semi-retired to Morden in 2009. Howard was a dedicated family man, a loved uncle, a true friend, an avid reader, one of the founders of the Pembina Lodge in the Valley, a faithful church member and an auction sale devotee. He was a man who was literally and figuratively looked up to by many. But Howard never looked down on anyone. He greeted you with a firm handshake which included uplifting conversation, and it left you with a smile. Howard was a collector of many things: tractors (diecast and real), books, pocketknives, coins, farm hats, guns, dollar store reading glasses (which will become Shirley’s Everest as she will find them – in every bowl, basket, cupboard, drawer, vehicle, tractor, and grain truck), newspaper clippings, and any tool that was on sale at Princess Auto or Canadian Tire. But the collection he valued the most was the collection of his friends and his extremely close family relations.

Funeral service was held on Monday May 2, 2022 at Westside Community Church with burial at the 1-6 German Cemetery. Howard’s family appreciated the many hands that lifted him to his final resting place, and those that made sure, “no hearse was left behind.”

Much gratitude is expressed to the STARS Air Ambulance personnel, the doctors, nurses and staff at the St. Boniface Hospital and Boundary Trails Health Centre. The family is overwhelmed by the kind words/stories, funeral attendance, flowers, food, donations, and merriment in honour of Big T. Many thanks to Cara Baker and Steven Baker for the beautiful music, Pastor Alex Klages and Vicar Nigel Prozenko for officiating the service, Westside Community Church for hosting and Wiebe Funeral Home Morden for assisting with the arrangements. A special acknowledgement to Howard’s favourite sister, Darlene, for sharing the eulogy. Donations may be made in Howard's memory to STARS Air Ambulance or to Howard's Project c/o Zion Lutheran Church (Storage Shed Fund).
