November 1, 2022 – Calgary, Alberta


Howard Gordon Lisson peacefully passed away in hospital on Tuesday, November 1, 2022, at the age of 76 years. Howard was born in Calgary, AB, in the General Hospital on September 13, 1946, to his mother Hilda Lisson (Thirwell) and father Reginald Lisson. He had one older brother, Brian Lisson. On September 25, 1976, Howard married the love of his life Shirley Lisson (Marshall). He is also survived by his two children, Shaun (Crystal) Lisson and Karli (Chad) McMahon; five grandchildren, Bradon (22), Nathen (20), Jaysen (19), Aiden (9), Emily (7); and one great-grandchild, Damian (10 months).


Howard will be lovingly remembered as a kind and generous man, who loved his family deeply and lived his life with a young heart. He was a man who loved dinosaurs, fossil hunting, and paleontology. He loved to volunteer his time at church events and Scouts groups, fundraising events, schools, marching bands, canoe and snowshoe trips, and the Calgary Zoo. He was the man people remembered by taking pictures of everything and everyone with the latest camera and lenses. He loved traveling the world with his wife by his side, and always had the next trip planned years in advance. He will be greatly missed, but never forgotten.
