Michael E. Howard, age 63 of Stanton, passed away unexpectedly at his home on Tuesday, September 15, 2020.
Mike grew up in Detroit and earned the nickname “Hood”. In his early years, he raced his 1967 GTO that was handed down to him from his dad. He loved to spend time wrenching on his multiple muscle cars and beautifying his yard. However, out of everything in this world his family was what he loved the most, especially his grandkids who were the light of his life. The world was a better place because of Mike, and he will be dearly missed by everyone who knew and loved him.
Surviving Mike is his mom, Donna Howard of Trufant; his beloved wife, Laura (Gillette) Howard; daughters, Heather (Jennifer) Cook of Greenville; Jenni (Pete) Barecki of Grand Rapids; Shannon (Cale) Ingles of Greenville; sons, Keith (Jessica) Howard of Stanton; Danny Howard of Stanton; grandchildren, Evelyn; Jaxon; Meagan; Emma; Jacy; Mia; Cody; and Jack. Also surviving are his brothers, Bill Howard of Trufant and David (Amy) Howard of Trufant.
Mike was preceded in death by his dad, Gerald Howard and grandparents, Melvin & Mildred Piercey and Donald & Vivian Howard.
Mike’s life will be celebrated at his home (919 Carlson Drive, Stanton) on Saturday, September 19, 2020 from 11 AM to 1 PM. Please feel free to come and go as your schedule allows.
