Howard was a devoted member of Maple Grove Church of the Brethren where he served as a deacon and former trustee. Throughout his life, he enjoyed flower gardening and working in his yard and fishpond. Howard was his grandchildren’s biggest fan, never missing any sporting events they were involved in. He will be deeply missed by his family. Howard was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather.
