CORINTH – Robert H. Howard passed away quietly at Emilio Estates in Corinth on Wednesday, Feb. 5, 2014.
He will be fondly remembered by Gilbert Townsend and his family; as well as his many friends and family from Maine and Vermont. Bob, grew up in Richmond, Vt. As a young man, he began driving truck and hauling grain and pulp. In 1969, Bob gave up long-haul trucking in Ohio and moved to Maine with 62 cents in his pocket. He often told this story and took pride in the fact that he had done quite well for himself considering his meager beginnings. He was a self-employed woodcutter, but he enjoyed helping friends work on their diesel equipment. Bob was very proud of the home he built in Corinth. At his home, he had many longtime friends that would drop by and visit. He also looked forward to playing cards with a small group of friends on a Saturday evening. When Bob joined the Charleston Church, he found fellowship, support, and many wonderful people; especially Mr. and Mrs. Dalton Dunfee. He often shared what an uplifting experience and sense of belonging he felt after listening and being part of the service on Sunday.
Bob was predeceased by his sister, Shirley McCullough of Hudson. He is survived by two sons and two daughters that live out of state.
A service will be held in remembrance of Robert H. Howard this spring at the Corinthian Cemetery, coordinated by Gilbert Townsend and Dalton Dunfee.
