David C. Howe
December 12, 1933 - March 4, 2018
Vernon, Connecticut

From my family's days at Vernon Methodist, we have fond and loving memories of David and his family. David and Shirley sponsored my husband and I on the Walk to Emmaus - a life changing event. Apple festivals and apple pies were a fun annual activity at VMC. David's apple pies were a big hit and disappeared quickly.

A man of boundless energy but yet a sweet quiet loving spirit. Truly a disciple of Jesus Christ and a deep desire that other's be disciples well.

Loved his family, loved his church and loved his Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ. May we all join with David in knowing it is well with our soul.

A beautiful memorial service and testimony to David and his life well lived.

Love in Christ Jesus,

Betty King

Shirley and family, I'm so sad to hear about David. He was like a father figure to me and just breaks my heart that we have to say goodbye. He will be truely missed and the church will have a big hole to fill. It was a blessing that he was in my life as well as my daughters, Erica and Jessica. He lived a christain life and showed many how to follow Jesus. Bless you David and thank you for being part of my life. Love and Hugs, Karla E. (Vernon United Methodist Church)

I am so saddened to hear of David's passing. I remember him fondly from the Assembly of the Laity. My prayers are with you and your family.
