Andrew G. Howard, 47, Seymour

Andrew G. Howard, 47, Seymour, passed away at Schneck Medical Center at 12:45 a.m. Monday, Oct. 7, 2013, after two years of battling cancer. 

Andy was born July 16, 1966 in Bloomington to Bill and Gloria (Gilmore) Howard, but moved to the Howard family farm in Brown County as a young boy and spent the next 30 years in and around the Nashville area. He graduated from Tennessee Academy and attended Vincennes University.  Andy worked a variety of jobs in his life, but was really adept at being an “ambassador of good will” to everybody he met in Brown County and in his last years in Seymour. He loved “making the rounds” visiting friends and helping with any chore or need they had. He was an avid auction goer and made a living selling his finds on Ebay even while battling a terminal illness. There were few people that Andy ever met who didn’t become a friend of his.

Survivors include his wife of 10 years, Brenda (Franklin) Howard of Seymour; two brothers, Bill (Lynn) Howard of Nashville and Luke (Linnie) Howard of Fayetteville, Ark.; and two step-sons, Bruce  and Shawn Simpson of Seymour.

Private family graveside services were conducted Tuesday, Oct. 8, with burial at Hoover Cemetery on the Howard farm in Nashville.

Memorials can be given to the Andrew Howard Memorial Fund care of the funeral home at 612 Meadowbrook Drive, Seymour, IN 47274.
