We send our condolences to Howard's family. Not only was Howard a friend from church, but was a great neighbor on Lakewood. We always enjoyed the driveway chats with Howard and Edith after walking and catching up on the latest news. I'll always remember when Howard got onto me and two friends when I was in Junior High during the Lord's Supper when we were sitting towards the back and cutting up. From then on, I treated the Lord's Supper with reverence. Kenny and Cindi Hughes

I am so sorry for your loss. Howard was a wonderful man and humble servant of the Lord. I loved hearing him sing in choir and the Havenly Singers at South Haven. And Howard and Edith were great fun to work with at Marketplace VBS and other areas of the church. I miss them both, and look forward to someday singing with him again. With deepest sympathy to Lynette and the rest of the family.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
