Howard Sturrock, a former mayor of Saanich, has died.
Sturrock was mayor of the municipality from 1987 to 1990, during which time he also chaired the CRD board and served on the boards of the Municipal Finance Authority and the BC Assessment authority.
Sturrock was named a Freeman of Saanich in 2013. That’s the highest formal honour a municipality can bestow upon a person.
His family says he died peacefully last night.
