George B. Howard, 77, of Union Mills, Indiana, passed away Saturday July 24, 2021 at his daughter’s home surrounded by his family in Union Mills, IN.
He was born January 19, 1944 in Jackson, Kentucky, the son of Barry Howard and Laura (Howard) Howard.
George had developed a love for fishing as well as hunting. He was the type of fisherman who would make his catch, then release. The funny thing is he really never cared for the taste of fish. On the other hand, on his squirrel hunting trips to Kentucky, he enjoyed eating his catch. George enjoyed bluegrass music, gardening, and canning. He always loved spending time with his nephews and cousins playing cards in to the late hours of the morning. He was a woodworker to and would re-do the stocks on family rifles. But George's true passion in life was his love for this family, his grandkids, and his great-grand kids.
On August 18, 1967, in Knox, IN, he married Gladys Howard who survives. They were married for 54 years.
He is also survived by his daughter, Patricia Stacy (Leon) Clark of Union Mills, IN; five grandchildren, Leon, John, Tori (John) Boffo, Lucas, Logan; and two great-grandchildren, Holly, and Heather.
George was preceded in death by his son, Randall L. Howard, and daughter, Loredith Howard.
Arrangements are being entrusted to Haverstock Funeral Home and Cremation Services, 602 Maple Ave., LaPorte, IN where the family will receive friends Friday, July 30th from 11 am until service time at 1 PM. A life celebration will be held at the funeral home at 1 PM, with Pastor Ernie Milton officiating. Interment will follow at the Kingsbury Cemetery, Kingsbury, Indiana.
A dinner will be served directly after the service at Landmark Baptist Church 1604 1st St. La Porte, IN 46350.
