Dear Sharron and Gina: I offer my deepest sympathies to you, on Howard's sudden passing. May your memory of him comfort you in this time of grief and thereafter. (It was only by chance that I learned of Howard's passing, while I was trying to do some family genealogy, using Paperman's website. It was a shock greatly saddening to discover Howard's obituary here.) Gina: Howard and I were close friends during our last year of high school and through our undergraduate years at university; especially playing music together. We always pushed each other to improve our guitar skills in many genres of music, some of it being avant-garde. We eventually played at a couple of concerts -- his first band experience (and my last). After graduating, I married and moved to and around Ontario, and even farther. As the years went by, Howard and I got together more and more infrequently; but each time was an enjoyable experience. I believe the last time was around 2005. I will always fondly remember our musical times together.

James Phillips - 21 days ago

I'm a total stranger but I always enjoyed Mr. Greenfield's regular letters to the editor in The Globe and Mail; his insights were so keen and astute (and often very funny) and whenever I saw his name in the letters page I knew there was something important to read. I will miss his contributions to the public discussion and I extend my sincerest condolences to his family and friends.

Farley Helfant - 21 days ago

Scrolling down the “letters to the editor” section every morning, it was always wonderful to find “a Greenfield”. His were the best. May his memory be a blessing. Farley Helfant

Michael Worsoff - 22 days ago

I was very saddened to learn about Howard’s passing. We were together at the same law firm many years ago and I had many enjoyable discussions with him. He was a unique individual and will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.

Michael N. Bergman - 22 days ago

I just learned of Howie's passing. Even in grade 4 he could articulate an interesting opinion. May his family be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem. Michael N. Bergman

Iris Campbell - 23 days ago

Dear Sharon, Jimmy & family, I was so saddened to see the notice of Howard’s passing. I have such fond memories growing up across the street and the time spent together on holidays with our families. I was lucky enough to spend many hours with Howie learning guitar. He was a great teacher who tolerated my humour which far exceeded my guitar skills. Thinking of you and your family during this difficult time. May you find comfort in the memories.

Jennifer - 24 days ago

Dear Sharron, Jim, and family, I was so saddened to hear of Howard’s passing. I have fond memories of our student days rambling around Montreal in all weather, of deep discussions about life and the universe, and of smoking cigars on the first day of spring. Howard was a profound thinker and frequently engaged Prof. Charles Taylor, the world renown Hegel scholar, in deep discussion which earned him the moniker “Brilliant Howard” from his classmates. His strong belief in justice resulted in his choice of law as a career and, later, in his many letters to the editor to share his vision. Howard’s great love of music of all kinds was a defining characteristic of his personality. He was a gifted musician and showman whether singing for an audience of one or entertaining a club full of dancers with his rock and roll band. His joyous enthusiasm, kindness, and sense of fun drew others to him. Most of all, Howard was deeply devoted to his family, and I will always remember my warm welcome at the Greenfield table. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy at this very sad time. Howard will be greatly missed. Jennifer

Aida Nazarian - 25 days ago

Dear Greenfield family, I extend my sincerest condolences and deepest sympathy to you. I wish you peace, comfort, and courage during this time of sorrow. Howard was my advisor and friend for more than two decades. His passing was so sudden; I can't believe it. He will be dearly missed.

Arsineh Garabedian - 26 days ago

Dear Gina, Sharron, James, girls, and all loved ones, I extend my heartfelt condolences. Howard played a significant role in shaping my life and the lives of my sons. The consistent love and support he brought to our home were deeply cherished. I can still witness his witty humor and profound intellect reflected in my sons, and I am certain that he impacted the lives of many others he encountered. While Howard's life was tragically short, reminiscent of Fay's, I find solace in believing that he is now reunited with her and Issie. May their spirits find peace together.

Alex Durian - 26 days ago

He was kind to me. When I was young, he was kind and he encouraged me, and even now I am grateful of what he gave. Above all else, that’s what I remember most. He was a good man, and the world was happy to have him. To his family, the greatest condolences.

Barry Beloff - 26 days ago

Dear Greenfield Family, Please accept my deepest sympathy upon Howard's sudden and shocking passing. He was a Renaissance Man to the core and a Master of Words! The King of Letters-to-the Editor, as well. A good friend, gone much too soon. May the sweet memories of him sustain you all. Barry Beloff

michael besner - 26 days ago

Dear Family; I was shocked and beside myself when I read of Howard's passing the very day of his funeral. Knowing Howard for decades, practicing/living beside him with adjoining offices for those same decades on Sherbrooke St., thereafter seeing him regularly on Greene Ave. - right up until the week of his passing was just part of my routine schedule. Howard was unique, a "master" of words/thought, a gentle kind soul and always a defender for the underdog. It is truly sad that such a wonderful person be snatched away from us all - way too soon. We will all miss him tremendously. My condolences to all of you, may your memories of him bring a smile to your faces and warm your broken hearts. RIP dear friend. Michael

Marsha Levine - 27 days ago

Dear Gina, Sharron, Jim, Lianne, and Brittany-I was shocked and saddened to hear of Howard's untimely passing. Gina, it meant so much to my mom when you and Howard made the trip to NJ to visit her a few years ago. I have known Howard my entire life and have many fond memories of visits to Canada over the years. I am glad we were able to keep in touch in recent years as well. I will miss my cousin "Howie"! My deepest condolences to the entire family. May his memory be a blessing.

Jeffrey Smith - 27 days ago

Dear Gina and the extended family, Although we have been distant in miles living in America, Howard and I often engaged in intellectual debates about Canada, Quebec, the United States, and the Middle East. Although I had a history degree and an MBA, I was never the intellectual match for my learned cousin. Howard was a gifted writer and his articles to the Montreal Gazette and other news publications gave insight to our world and how we should follow justice and the rule of law. Howard and Gina were also there for our beloved Uncle Solly who sadly passed away last year, and we are eternally grateful. We will all miss you. Fondly, Jeff, Annette, Bradley, and family.

Brian Frohlich - 27 days ago

I met Howard (only his mother called him Howie at that time) in the 7th grade, in Mr. Hersey's class. We hit it off immediately and were best of friends all through elementary and high school. After that we drifted apart as I moved away, and then far away and then far, far away. But whenever we got back together again, the years flew and we were back in the 7th grade riding our bicycles, playing road hockey, and reveling in the great love of our lives, the Montreal Canadiens. Goodbye Howard. You left us too soon. Brian and Jye Frohlich Poway California

Michael Campbell - 27 days ago

Dear Sharron and family, My sincerest condolences on Howard's passing. My memories of Howard go way back to when the Greenfields lived for many years directly across from us in Chomedey. My thoughts of him include the time spent with him when our families vacationed together in Wildwood, NJ. It was there where he purchased and worked hours on mastering the harmonica. He was a great musician and music teacher who inspired me during his many "balcony music sessions" to take up playing the guitar.....fond memories I have of simple and happy times...May his memory be a blessing. Be well. Fondly, Michael

Sue - 27 days ago

I am saddened and shocked to read about Howard's sudden passing. The "letters to the editor" section in the newspapers will never be the same without his insightful contributions. Sending my sincere condolences to his family.

My condolences to Howard’s family and friends. I am so sorry to hear of his passing and although I haven’t seen him in years I am sad to know that I won’t be seeing him again.

Richard Conrad - 27 days ago

Richard Conrad Dear Gina and family. Judi and I wish to express our condolences for your sudden tragic loss and unimaginable grief. We feel privileged to have been numbered among Howard’s wide circle of acquaintances and admirers over the past decade or so. Howard and I were pen pals of sorts, with Howard wielding the pen, of course: he enjoyed sharing with me his letter(s) to the editor du jour, complete with commentary on how likely--or unlikely--they were to see the light of print, given the bias of the newspaper in question on a given topic. We also witnessed, albeit from a distance, the sort of story book, later-in-life romance that bloomed between you and Howard to form an extraordinary couple. So sorry for your loss…Howard was a truly remarkable man who will be greatly missed. Unfortunately, we are out of town so will be unable to attend the funeral. Judi Levine and Richard Conrad

Jane - 27 days ago

Dear Sharron and family, Jesse and I are very sad and shocked to hear that Howard has gone and so suddenly. We do hope that your memories will help you and your children. Thinking of you. Jane and Jess

His intellect was outstanding and I looked forward to reading his weekly letters to the editor. He was a true mensch. May his memory be a blessing. Howie Tatner

Josée Legault - 28 days ago

Chère Gina, dear Sharron, James, Lianne, Brittany, Ryan and to everyone who had the privilege of calling Howard “my friend”, I offer my condolences. His sudden departure is a huge shock. It leaves a void I cannot explain, only feel. Three decades ago, Howard and I met by chance on his birthday. His friendship has been a veritable gift ever since. Howard’s sharp intellect came with a generous heart, an attentive ear and a smile that could light up the world. His sharp humour could disarm me in a second. His encyclopedic knowledge and appreciation of music was simply mesmerizing. Howard’s famed Letters to the Editor, every one of them shedding a unique perspective on any given problem, left no one indifferent. So much so that I often told him how he would make a formidable columnist. His perfect mastery of words left me in total admiration. Through all the years, his unwavering friendship was a blessing and a gift. Howard will remain in my heart forever though the pain of his absence cuts it right open. Through it all, in his work as a stellar lawyer, in his writings, with his family and friends, Howard was a true man of justice, love and compassion. His Jewish faith and its deeply rooted humanistic guiding principles, could move mountains. In Gina, he had found his soul mate, his eternal companion, his light. I knew just how much he was looking forward to “growing old”, for a very long time to come, together with his beloved wife. Gina made him a happy and thoroughly fulfilled man. Chère Gina, que son amour te donne courage, te porte et te protège. Howard, my dearest friend, we will meet again one day. May your soul be blessed. Ton amie pour toujours, Josée.

Peter Galley Lynn Lavery - 28 days ago

Harold Toulch - 28 days ago

Howard was knowledgeable and was smart. So I wanted to be on top of my game when we would meet. But nothing gave me more satisfaction than when I got a laugh out of him. Those moments I will cherish most. My sincere condolences to Howard’s family and circle of friends.

Doris Zicherman - 28 days ago

Dear Gina, Sharron, Jim, Lianne, Brittany & Ryan, Howard used to often say to me during times of difficulty that the worst is never certain. But now the unthinkable has suddenly happened and I have no words to fill the immense void left behind by Howard's passing. I wish you healing and peace.

Kathleen (Kay) Tansey - 28 days ago

Dear Gina and all the Greenfield family: My deepest condolences on this sad and sudden news. I have known Howard since McGill Law School and, though he was a few years behind us, he stood out even then for his intelligence, sense of humour, and irony. Through our mutual friendships with Doris Zicherman and Peter Reimann, we have always stayed in touch over these many years. I would always scan the Letters to the Editor, looking for Howard's clever and terse contributions. He loved his family and was very proud of all of you. You and Howard are in my thoughts. Kay

Larry Raifman - 28 days ago

Dear Family, May your memories of Howie comfort you during this sad time. Gone way too soon. I remember Howie from early school days. His infectious spirit and love of Les Canadiens will be a part of how I remember him. We lost touch for many years but reconnected just before Covid regarding a high school reunion which unfortunately did not take place. Sincerely, Larry Raifman

Harvey & Lois Toulch - 28 days ago

Dear Gina and Greenfield Family, We are deeply saddened to hear of Howard’s sudden passing. I have known Howard for many decades. We hiked together in our younger days and we shared an office for many years. Howard was one of very few lawyers who could quote legal principles in Latin with ease. He was always witty, erudite, and gifted with a brilliant legal mind. I often sought his opinion when dealing with difficult legal cases. We will miss him dearly.

Cara Potechin - 28 days ago

Mark Potechin - 28 days ago

Sharron and Jimmy, you know how close my parents were with yours. Fay and Issie were such fine people and the apple does not fall far from the tree. As fellow lawyers we would sometimes call each other but it has been quite a few years. We will always have those memories that go back as far as the Mutual Life conferences. We are all very sorry to hear about Howie. May his memory be for a blessing. BDE. Liola, Mark, Jamey, Cindy and Cara

Gordon Mitchell - 28 days ago

Dear Sharon, Gina and family. Please accept our sincere condolences on the passing of Howard. It was indeed premature, in the truest meaning of the word. I had the pleasure of travelling through Europe with Howard in the early 1970s. His companionship and astute observations made the trip all the more memorable. Though we grew apart in later years, I always followed his remarkable career and often looked through the Letters to the Editor in the Gazette in hopes of finding one of his pithy comments. Again, please accept our sincerest condolences on your loss. Gordon Mitchell - Valérie Favre

Dear Gina, Edith and I understand how deeply you must be affected by losing Howard, with whom you shared the hopes and plans of life. We know how devoted you were to him, and how much he loved you. We can only imagine your sense of loss. For so many years, Howard was my friend, my law firm partner at Figlarz Greenfield, mentor, and guide. He was always deeply thoughtful and eloquent in the defence of justice, whether for his clients, while leading the Equality Party, or in his concern for the Jewish community. He was one of nature's gentleman and we will all miss him. Take comfort in the pride he no doubt felt in your accomplishments and successes, and you in his. We hope your memories of him bring you some solace and please accept our condolences.

A talented singer like his father and zeida before him. May his memory be a blessing and may you know no more sorrow.

Please accept my heartfelt condolences.

Dear Gina, I am so very deeply sorry for such a terrible loss, for you, all the family, and to all who enjoyed Howard's intellect, excellence with words, great articles in the newspapers, and very dry wit.
