Howard Weston

I post this terribly sad news On behalf of Top Dog Agility / Otley DTS / Wakefield Agility and the many clubs Howard Weston was associated with....
It is with great sadness that Howard has lost his long fight this morning with a cruel illness that he couragously battled.
He will be greatly missed by all who knew him, the agility world has lost one of the good guys and all who knew him will agree. He was sincere and genuine and always there to help if needed.
Howard was seen regularly at many many shows over many years....he never just competed but was always there in a helping role giving his time selflessley.
Howard was a gentleman and a friend to many....agility today has lost a true shining star. Rest In Peace Howard you will be sorely missed by all who knew you.
Sincere condolences to his wife Alex.

One of the truly great people in Agility, and for none of the usual reasons like gold medals though he had his share of success. Simply because he lit up every show he attended with his enthusiasm, helpfulness and good nature. I was very fond of him, bumping into him at a show always brightened up my day. Much love to all his family at a very sad time. :tears:

Never did anything by halves did Howard, whether inside the ring or out. You could hear him running his dogs a mile off and the look of disappointment on his face if he thought he hadn't been asked to help enough........

Try to give him a thank you? Forget it. Cheques went uncashed and free run vouchers unused.

He was a character to say the least, and if everyone only did a fraction of what he put into agility we'd be spoilt for help to run our shows.

Bye Howard. :wave: and thanks for everything. It'll be strange without you.

We were sorry to hear that Howard was ill, and missed seeing him around the shows. It is sad that he has now died.
Howard was always so friendly, helpful and kind. If you were uncertain how to handle a course he was willing to suggest ways of handling it, and if you did well he would be so pleased for you.
He will be missed

Howard will be greatly missed - he seemed to turn up everywhere I went for many years and really enjoyed helping. I was so pleased to see him at a show last year and he greeted me with a big hug. Agility has lost one of its memorable characters. RIP Howard.

Howard was a lovely man, it always made me smile to see (and hear :D ) him running his dogs.
He will be sorely missed around the agility rings.

I can only echo what others have said. Howard was a true gent and an amazing character and agility shows in the north of England will not be the same without him. Condolences to his family.xx
