Messages & Condolences
I remember Howard in grade and junior high school. So sorry to hear he has left this world. Always a loss when a contemporary goes. It reminds us all we are not kids anymore and makes us a little sad. May God rest his soul and strength to his sons.
I’d like to echo the compliments being paid to Howard. He was all those things as a child, too. I remember him from first grade and from Lawrence High, as well as many years at West Side Presbyterian Church in Lawrence. I was also envious of his water skiing talents that he kept on display at Lake Dabinawa north of Lawrence. my sincere condolences to his family and friends.
Howard “Mitch” as I knew him, I worked with him at Brown county Sheriff’s Dept. One of the nicest and always positive people I have ever known, always willing to take the time to help anyone. He and his family are in my thoughts and prayers.
I knew Howard through my dad Mike Yost. Dad enjoyed working with Howard at the Nemaha County Sheriffs Dept. Howard was very kind in the memorial letter left to my Mom, sharing stories of my Dad from years passed. It was nice to see the bond they shared from working the jail together and at CMA.
Howard got to see Mike sooner than we all thought.. I know my dad greeted him like a friend into heaven.
We have served alongside Mitch for many years in CMA and have enjoyed his stories, his wit, and fun outlook on things! The last year he really got into camping and bought a bunkhouse which he did get to use at our CMA Sycamore Springs campout. Though he was not feeling well, he had a good time goofing with us. We will miss him greatly! So sorry we are not able to be at service, but you will be in our hearts and prayers as you say goodbye to a wonderful man of God. God bless! Brian & Jannette Adcock
