Ralph Vernon Howe
Ralph Vernon Howe, age 81, Mayhew Road, Jackson, born February 23, 1927 in Scioto County, left the bonds of this world on Saturday, November 8, 2008, surrounded by his loving family, Pastor Janie Karl, and the support of the Select Specialty Hospital staff. He fought a valiant battle to recover from accidental injuries he suffered several months ago in his home. He was preceded in death by his parents, Ralph and Grace Howe, beloved wife of 59 years Betty Lou, son Gregory Vernon and brother and sister-in-law, Rich and June Ervin.

He leaves to cherish his memory his son William, niece Virginia (Bill) Carey, nephew Rich (Bev) Ervin, and five great nephews and their families.

Mr. Howe was a lifetime member of Trowel Lodge 132 F & AM. His first jobs were in local foundries. He then went to work at the D.T.& I. Railroad and finished his career with 33-plus years as a cascade operator at Goodyear Atomic Corporation. He owned and operated Howe's Farm Machinery for over 25 years. He also farmed the home place farm on Mayhew Road. He was an avid horseman and happiest when in the sulky behind one of the standard breed pacers. Until the time of his passing, he was a member of the United States Trotting Association and held Class A drivers license to drive a horse at any raceway in the continental United States and Canada.
