Ethan V. Howard III, 57
Ethan Victor Howard III, 57, died serenely surrounded by family at the Elliot Hospital, in Manchester, N.H., on the evening of Tuesday, July 10, 2007, following a valiant battle with cancer.
Ethan was born on Sept. 23, 1949, in Manchester, N.H. to Ruth Howard and Ethan Victor Howard Jr. He spent his many childhood adventures growing up in Bow, N.H. with his sister, Kathy Sproul.
He graduated from the University of New Hampshire, where his love for the outdoors was solidified, by receiving his bachelor of science in forest management. He later went on to receive his graduate degree in forest biometrics, in 1973, from Duke University in North Carolina. However, Ethan’s most prized reward from his years in college, was the love of his college sweetheart, Lynne Klacsmann.
Ethan and Lynne were married on June 19, 1971. They settled and raised four children in Auburn, N.H. Their three boys, Ethan, Aaron, and Jordan, and their baby girl, Brittany, fulfilled their dream of having a large family. They served as an example of true love and devotion, for 36 years, as their children grew up to start families of their own.
He served his country with 22 years as a member of the Army National Guard. Upon graduation from Duke University, he returned to New Hampshire, and began his 34-year career with the Manchester Water Works. He described his job as “working for the trees.” He was well-known for his deep love for the Lake Massabesic Watershed woods. He spread that enthusiasm to all he touched.
Ethan also served on the Rockingham Woodland Owners chapter of the NH Timberland Owners Association for many years as director and past president. He also sat on the Board of Directors of the NHTOA. He was professionally associated with many different organizations such as, being a member of The Society of American Foresters since 1976, The Auburn Conservation Committee, the Forest Communication Council, Friends of the Massabesic Bicycling Association, Rockingham Trails, The Safety Review Board, and many more.
He also had many extracurricular activities, which he devoted his heart to. He had a deep passion for dog racing, and was a dog sled musher for 12 years. He was also a Member of the NH Snow-sledders, and loved cross-country skiing. He was active, for many years, with the 4-H program, sometimes in a vain effort to keep his children busy. He enjoyed going kayaking on the lake with Lynne and friends. He was a huge Red Sox fan, and an avid fan of Duke University basketball. However, Ethan’s favorite pastime was spending time with family and friends. He was always ready to share a joke or some antidote, or lend a hand when it was needed.
Ethan will always be remembered as a brave man who fought his roughly three-year battle with cancer with superhero strength and determination. He never gave up, and refused to allow his struggle to affect his zest for life, even till the very end. He is lovingly remembered as a man who always made a friend out of anyone he met. He not only appreciated the life he was given he cherished it. He was an inspiration to all he touched.
Ethan is survived by his wife Lynne Howard; his children, Ethan Howard and wife Eufemia Howard of Palm Bay, Fla; Aaron Howard and wife Karen Howard of Berwick, Maine; Jordan Howard and wife Shalon Howard of Summerville, S.C.; and Brittany Howard of Auburn, N.H.; his grandchildren, Melissa, Jacqueline, Ashlyn, Grace, Aubrey, Alannah, Mackenzie, and Little Ethan; his sister Kathy Sproul and husband Keith Sproul of Whitefield, Maine and his father, Dr. Ethan Victor Howard Jr. of Bow, N.H. He is predeceased by his mother, Ruth Howard.
ARRANGEMENTS: The memorial service will be held Saturday, July 21, at
10 a.m. at Longmeadow Congregational Church in Auburn, N.H. The interment will take place privately with the family. In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully requests that donations be made in honor of Ethan’s battle, and for all those people who continue to fight, to the Massachusetts General Hospital, Cancer Center. The donations can be made online at www.massgeneral.org, in the Cancer Center site or by phone at 1-617-726-2200, with Kate Todd, Director of Development, Cancer Center.
