Obituary for Jeffrey L Howe
Jeffrey Lynn Howe, age 64, passed away at his home after a lengthy illness on Monday, July 27, 2020. He was born in Greenville, Michigan on August 28, 1955 to Dale and Nylah (Jones) Howe. Jeff grew up in Belding where he graduated from Belding High School in 1973. He married Karen McCreery of Belding in 1991 and they enjoyed nearly 30 years of marriage. Jeff worked in tool and die at General Motors, retiring after 32 years.
Jeff loved sports. He was very athletic, active in volleyball and other sports in his younger years. But golf was his passion and he was an avid golfer most of his life. He enjoyed sharing his abilities with others and was a patient teacher. He also loved watching sports, frequenting the Whitecaps games, and rarely missed any of his son's many sporting events. Jeff’s main importance in life was his family, sharing family time and especially family meals with his wife and his sons, who he was very proud of.
Jeff is survived by his wife, Karen and sons, Logan and Timothy, all of Sparta; father and mother-in-law, Jim and Suzanne McCreery of Belding; in-laws, David and Deb McCreery of Belding, Craig McCreery of Belding, and Bob Stull of Rockford; many nieces and nephews; special friends that were like family, Larry and Phyllis Lachniet and Julie Canfield. Jeff was preceded in death by his parents, his sister, Barb Stull and brother, James Howe.
Services for Jeff will be held at Trinity Christian Reformed Church in Sparta on Saturday August 1, 2020 at 2:00PM with Reverend CJ DenDulk officiating. Family will meet visitors beginning at 1:00PM at the church until the time of service. Those wishing to make a memorial donation in Jeff’s memory may do so to the charity of ones’ choice.
