Howard, David Paul 73, of Fenton, MO, passed away at Barnes Jewish Hospital on Saturday, April 18, 2020. He was born to Ernest E. and Ollie Jane (Barrow) Howard on September 6, 1946. David grew up on a cotton farm in Matthews, MO where he was the first of his family to graduate high school. After graduation, he completed his diesel-mechanic welding certification at Auto-Diesel College in Nashville, TN. From 1967-1968 he served in the 716th Battalion of the US Army during the Vietnam War. He spent his young adult years riding around St. Louis on his motorcycle alongside his brothers, and found passion in fixing up GTOs and other automobiles. In 1971, a longtime friend, Russell McGlade, set David up on a date with Carol. This proved Russell had good instincts, as they were married October 21, 1972. They were blessed with three children, Monica, Dan, and Loren. Through their forty-seven and a half years of marriage, David and Carol displayed a beautiful example of God’s never ending love through their care for others, marriage, and open door. For many years, David faithfully supported his family through their interests and activities. Every event had a spot saved for David cheering on his children. His quiet, but strong faith was lived out through many acts of services to his church, community, and friends. David proudly took on the name Paw Paw to three grandchildren. In their early years, each of them spent time keeping Paw Paw out of trouble while their parents worked. Cameron, Madison, and Molly brought unspeakable joy and light to David. Whenever anyone was in need, David was always there to help. No matter the situation, David was determined to find a “creative” way to solve any problem! Whether creating sawdust or digging in the dirt, David kept busy with his woodworking and gardening projects. David was a member of Disabled American Veterans, a proud VFW member, and earned the rank of third-degree Mason. The characteristics of being a Mason reflect the values David lived out every day: “being a Mason means the kind of deep satisfaction that comes only from selfless giving; from doing for others without asking, or expecting, anything in return.” He is met in Heaven by his parents and siblings: Aleda Anderson (Jim), Elmer Howard, Levoy Howard (Marie), Arry Howard, Larry Howard, Odean Howard, and Buford Howard; Carol’s parents, William H. and Eva Mae (Laib) Hetzel; sisters- and brothers-in-law: Doris Westfall, Beverly Todd, and Jim Martin. David’s legacy will be carried on by his loving wife Carol, his children Monica and Kris Ehlers (Albert City, Iowa), Dan and Dara Howard (St. Louis, Missouri), and Loren Howard (Columbia, Missouri), and his grandchildren Cameron, Madison, and Molly Howard. Left to cherish their memories of David are his sisters-in-law: Doris Howard, Pam Howard, Dea Howard, and Connie Howard; Carol’s siblings: Janice Nolt (Mervin), Bill Hetzel (Maggie) and Rita Martin; and brothers-in-law: Myron Westfall and Taylor Todd as well as many nephews, nieces and countless friends. David will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Donations are appreciated in David’s name to Vietnam Veterans of America or St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, a private burial is scheduled for immediate family only, and a celebration of life will be scheduled at a future date.
