In 1918 the family returned to Wyoming and have lived at Manville since that time. As a young man he joined the Baptist Church and at the time of his death he was a member of the Manville Community Church. For a number of years he taught music and directed choirs in addition to operating his jewelry business. He kept constantly at work at his trade until a few days before his death. His favorite pastime was playing checkers and his subtle humor and his gentle nature made him a favorite in the community.

He is survived by his wife, Neletta; three daughters, Mrs. Murrin Keenan of Pine Bluffs, Mrs. Emma Richardson of Manville and Mrs. A. F. DeCastro of Lusk; two sons, Ross Howard of Cheyenne and Robert Howard of Redlands, Calif.; and 13 grandchildren and one great-grandchild
