It is with deep sadness and a heavy heart that we have to announce the passing of our friend Padre Ivan Howitt.

Following a short illness over the Christmas period, Padre Ivan sadly passed away peacefully in his sleep on 3rd January.

Approachable and affable, Padre Ivan effortlessly endeared himself to both cadets and adult volunteers alike. His wisdom, compassion, and ability to connect with people on a personal level left an indelible mark on the cadet force community.

Padre Ivan's presence was a source of inspiration and joy and comfort. As we mourn the loss of our padre, we remember not only a dedicated spiritual guide but also a kindred spirit who embraced the cadet ethos wholeheartedly. His legacy lives on through the countless lives he touched, the lessons he imparted, and the memories he created.

To the cadets, adult volunteers, and all those who had the privilege of knowing Padre Ivan, let us cherish the memories we shared with Padre Ivan and strive to embody the principles of service, camaraderie, and adventure that he so passionately embraced.

Our thoughts, love and support go out to his family and friends during this difficult time.
