Howard Burton Kaiser

1940-2021

Howard Burton Kaiser

With shattered hearts, we announce the passing of Howard Burton Kaiser who left peacefully with family by his side on Thursday, July 15, 2021. With passion in his heart reserved for his beautiful family and friends, his beloved "Sea Mist Cafe", and a hot cup of tea, Howard often spoke of just how blessed he was. Blessed to have seen not just his children grow, but his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. With saltwater in his veins, Howard was a fisherman at heart. He began his career at sea as a young teenager and retired (or so we thought) in 1993, when he was ready for a new adventure. Famous for his fish and chips, he was the owner/operator of "Sea Mist Cafe" in Port Bickerton, where customers would come from hours away just to get a taste of his spectacular talents in the kitchen. He was also a member of the Anglican Church. A  special thank you to all the staff at St. Mary’s Memorial Hospital in Sherbrooke. Your care and compassion will forever be appreciated and never forgotten. Howard is survived by his loving wife, Mary Lou Kaiser (MacIntosh) of 58 years; his children, (3 P’s in a pod), Peter (Claire) Kaiser, Patty Lou (Andy) McGrath and Perry (Myrna) Kaiser; 4 grandchildren, Alisha (Marshall) Childs, Mallori (Ian) Nickerson, Garrett (Bailey) McGrath and Sydni (Layne) Kaiser; 9 great-grandchildren, Makenzi, Riley, Hailey, Zander, Cayden, Lux, Beau, Johnathan Howard and Calvin (with the girls of the family he nicknamed "Pup’s Dolls"); sisters, Gertie and Ola (Alex); brother, Hibbert (Betty); sisters-in-law, Patsy (Gordon) and Judy (Leonard); brother-in-law, Sonny. Howard/Pup will be forever missed, loved dearly and will always be thought of with a smile, a laugh and a promise to meet again. Howard who was born on April 12, 1940, was predeceased by his parents, Francis Maxwell and Effie Grace; siblings, Jean Adelia (who died in infancy), Chester, Dorothy (Dot), Floyd, Jim and brothers-in-law, Seward, Jackie, Everette and sister-in-law, Linda. A private family graveside funeral service will be held on Tuesday, July 20, 2021 at 3:00 p.m. in Hillside Cemetery, Port Bickerton. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to St. Mary’s Memorial Hospital, Sherbrooke or St. Paul’s Anglican Church, Port Bickerton. Funeral arrangements are under the dignified and compassionate care of G.W. Giffin Funeral Home, 34 Main St., Sherbrooke. On-line condolences may be made at www.gwgiffin.com.
