For the past thirty two years Howey Bay Resort has been owned and operated by Marg's parents, Bev and Linda Cheney and ourselves, Marg and Dave McLeod. In 1980 Bev retired as a bank manager of a local bank and started working full time at the Resort. A few years later in 1986, Marg and I moved to Red Lake with our two young children, Sarah and Peter, where Marg assumed a teaching position and I assumed the position of Director of Education of the School District. A number of years later Marg and I retired in order to operate the Resort on a full time basis.
Sarah is a Registered Massage Therapist who works in her thriving practice in London. She and her husband have twin five year olds who love to visit the Resort . Pete is self employed in the aviation industry. After finishing university he was chosen to qualify to race in the Red Bull World Championship air race circuit. All the years Pete spent flying with me and then for our Resort as he went through high school and University helped shape his career interests.
Our family have always been avid outfdoors enthusiasts who try to leave our environment in better shape than we found it. We strongly believe in utilizating conservation practices that will ensure that our grandchildren will have access to the kind of environment and resources that we have been so fortunate to experience throughout our lives.
