Mr. Howard was born to Marvin D. Howard and Rita J. (Howard) Perkins on Nov. 11, 1972, in Sacramento, Calif., and passed away on Friday, July 22, 2022.

He was a graduate of Franklin County High School in Meadville, and furthered his education at Copiah-Lincoln Community College in Wesson and the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg. 

He was employed as a manager and sales professional in retail businesses along the Mississippi Gulf Coast, including Sears, Rouses Market and Pat Peck Honda. 

Mr. Howard loved meeting and making new friends, and his employment success was easily attributed to his friendly and easy-going personality.

Mr. Howard loved sports of all kinds, especially football. 

As part of that love, he developed and led a fantasy football league. 

Through this activity, he made new friends that extended across the nation.

He was preceded in death by his maternal grandmother, Jeane Voos; and his paternal grandparents, Marvin Howard Sr. and Kitty Howard.

Survivors include his wife, Jennifer Ann Howard, who was the love of his life; his son, Conner Howard; his daughter, Caroline Howard; his step-sons, Preston Comans and Jason Diamond; his mother, Rita Perkins, and his step-father, Ray Perkins; his father and step-mother, Marvin and Susan Howard; his mother-in-law, Patricia Davis; and his three siblings, John Perkins, Matthew Howard and Margaret Cunningham.
