The Obit For Harvey Howard

Harvey H. Howard

Published in The Arizona Republic from May 20 to May 21, 2010


On Sunday, May 16th Harvey H. Howard left his loving family to be with our Lord and Savior. He was born in Bloomingdale, Michigan on March 10th, 1918. At the age of two, his family moved to Huntington Park, California.

He met his future Wife, June Lee, in a cooking class! After 63 years of marriage, she preceeded him in death.

For many years he was a catcher in the Minor Leagues, ending his career with the St. Louis Cardinals. Then he joined the Post Office, and retired after 30 years.

We would like to thank all our family and friends for their prayers, calls, visits and all other acts of kindness given to us during this difficult time.

Harvey leaves behind four children, Patricia (Dr. Lowell )Branson, Joyce (Gary) Bergthold, Edward (Joanne) Howard, and Roger (Cathy) Howard, ten grandchildren, twelve great-grandchildren, and two great-great grandchildren.

A special thank you to the staff and members of the Paradise Valley Community Church. In lieu of flowers, donations are requested to Church Building Fund.

A Memorial Service will be held at Paradise Valley Community Church, 4242 E. Greenway at 11:00 A.M. Saturday, May 22nd, 2010.

Entrusted to the care of Greer Wilson Funeral Home.
