In Memoriam-John Howard ’66

May 15, 2013

I was startled and saddened to see long-time corridor mate John Howard’s name listed on the alumni magazine’s In Memoriam page. The internet yielded an obituary:

Sounds like “JB” lived vigorously and well and went quickly, though much too early.

For those given to the more esoteric details of Deerfield history: John’s paternal aunt, “Mike” Howard Williams, was Frank Boyden’s personal secretary for many years, before she married (“Ancient”) Art Williams. Condolences to John’s wife Sue, a radiant addition to our 40th reunion — the first time I had had a chance to catch up with John in a long while. I was looking forward to seeing both of them at our 50th.
