Howard R. Hylton
1933 - 2018

Howard R. Hylton, 85, went home to be with his beloved wife, Carolyn M. Hylton, on May 10, 2018. Howard was born in Fullerton, CA, on April 4, 1933, and raised in Bakersfield, CA, where he graduated from Bakersfield High School. He worked for his father at Hylton Drilling at an early age, later to become co-owner.

Howard had a passion for shooting, and he was actively involved as an original member of the Bakersfield Smokers Drag Race Club, the Kern County Boat & Ski Club, dirt bike riding and racing, and eventually dirt track racing, which he enjoyed with his whole family and many friends.

Howard loved nature and treasured the peace and quiet of his hilltop home, where he lived for over 35 years.

Howard is survived by his two older sisters, Wanda and Betty; his children, Rhesa, Valerie (Gary), Jeffery, Randy (Anita), Rhonda (Eric); 9 grandchildren; and 11 great-grandchildren. He will be missed.

Visitation will be held Sunday, May 20th, from 12-4 p.m., with a chapel service on Monday, May 21st, 10 a.m., at Greenlawn Funeral Home Northeast, 3700 River Blvd. For condolences, please visit www.GreenlawnM-C.com Greenlawn Funeral Home Northeast
