Obituary for Bradley James Haworth

HAWORTH, Bradley James

Age 59, of Waverley, passed away at home on April 2, 2020, with his wife and family by his side after a short battle with cancer.

Born in Toronto to the late Richard James and Yvonne (Aspinall) Haworth, he will be dearly missed by his wife of 35 years Ingrid (Unruh), daughters Sarah (Brett Barwick), Rebecca (Kit Moran) and Victoria. He also leaves to mourn his mother Lillie (Sherwood) Haworth, Grimsby, ON; brother Richard (Andrea, nephews Ross and Cameron), Invermere, BC; Jeffrey (Kim) Codrington, ON; mother-in-law Anne Unruh, Vineland, ON; brother-in-law Ervin Unruh, Vineland, ON. He was looking forward to the birth of his first grandchild in April.

A graduate of the University of Guelph, BSc. 83 (Microbiology), Brad enjoyed a 30-year career with UFL and Newly Weds Foods. He was well respected in the food ingredient and food development industry where he made many life-long friends. He was an avid fisherman and enjoyed collecting antiques, publishing “The Maritime Antique Dealers’ Directory” for many years and restoring vintage lighting. His proudest achievements, however, were his three daughters. He found joy in sharing his vast knowledge with them, coaching their Ringette teams, cheering for them on the sidelines of the many sports they participated in and watching them succeed academically and in their careers.

Cremation has taken place. A celebration to honour his life and his memory will be held at a later date. If desired, donations in his memory can be made to KidSport Nova Scotia, SPCA, or Beacon House, Lower Sackville.

To the Howarth family. Brad was my room mate for three years at the U. of Guelph but we lost touch for almost 40 years. I have been searching for him for years only to recently find that he has passed- I am so sorry for your loss. Brad was a great guy & in my mind, he will always be the tall, cool 20 year old friend that lived down the hall

To Ingrid , Sarah, Rebecca and Victoria, my sincere condolences. I have known Brad for many years through work and although I haven't met all of you I feel like I know each one of you. I would always look forward to hearing about you all during our work travels. He loved to talk about his family and all the wonderful things that they were accomplishing. My girls we always excited to receive Brad's beautiful cookies on special occasions and he always slipped me some extra because he knew they loved them. He will be missed by all who were fortunate to have known him.

Ingrid, so sorry to hear your sad news. We have so many good memories of time spent with you and your family while you were living in Aylesford and after you moved to your beautiful home on the lake. A highlight for my girls was the trip to Crystal Palace. Brad was such a good man. We were privileged to know him. With our sincere sympathy, Marilyn and Darrel.

My sincere sympathy to Brad's family. I worked with Brad for 20 years out of the Chicago office and although business was the reason for our discussions or travels, his family was always the first topic to be discussed. He loved to talk about his children and was proud to deliver Ingrid's bakery goods to them when he could. He will be missed by all who were fortunate to have known him.

To Ingrid and Family, my sincerest condolences. I received notice of Brad's passing over the weekend and am only now able to compose something. I have many fond memories of the numerous biking, fishing, hiking, backpacking and climbing trips that Brad, Ken B. and myself did in Ontario, and BC. They were great adventures, ones that I will never forget. We also had a lot of fun and rowdy times with Dwayne M., Ken B., and myself in high school. He was well liked by whomever he met. May he rest in peace and my thoughts are with all of you. He will be missed.

To Ingrid , Sarah, Rebecca and Victoria, my sincere condolences. I received the notification from a mutual friend to Brad and myself (Steve M.). At that moment I lost a little bit of my youth. So many memories of having Brad as a friend for life. This started back in high school with outdoor adventures. This led to 26 days of the Canadian Outward Bound Mountaineering School for Brad, Steve and me in the mountains of western Canada in 1978. More recently visiting in Nova Scotia and here in Calgary I was hoping this was the start of reconnecting. I live in the country now in Western Canada and went for a long walk today (April 12) during a spring snowstorm to think of Brad. This loss will take some time to register for all of us. But know that my thoughts are with all of you at this very difficult time.

It is with profound sadness from myself and my two daughters, Madison & Eden, to learn of Brad's passing. When we were neighbours and our daughters would play, it was clear his daughters had a great father and one that would do anything for them. Brad and I would often chat about our daughters and I can only imagine the sorrow his family now feels for loosing such great person, loving father and husband. RIP Brad, and all our love and prayers for Ingrid, Sarah, Rebecca and Victoria.

Ingrid and family. I am so sorry for your loss. Brad was a true friend and while our contact was intermittent over the years it never took us long to fall back into a comfortable rhythm when we chatted or met. I will cherish the memories I have, be it cycling, steak dinners we had by raiding our parent's freezers or just great times with our high school mates. My thoughts are with you all. Brad will be missed.
