1948-2012 Howard Norman Lott died in the home he built in Townshend on December 30, 2012. He was 64.
Born January 15, 1948 in Montclair, N.J., he spent all his summers and school vacations at his grandparent's farm on what is now Lost Mile Road near Sunset Lake. Howard attended schools in Essex Fells, N.J., graduating from West Essex High School and continued his studies at Franklin Pierce College, by which time, the rest of his family had moved to Townshend.
An accomplished air guitar player, Howard was a great lover of music, and attended hundreds of concerts. He spent two summers working on fishing boats in Alaska and traveling around the country getting into mischief. Howard was a fantastic storyteller, especially about when he was a kid in Vermont. He taught his daughter how to drive when she was 12 and loved a clever prank. A faithful sports fan, Howard never deserted the New York Giants when they moved to the West Coast. He spent much of his life as a salesman and served the Town of Townshend for many years as an Auditor and Lister 'surviving' two reappraisals.
He is survived by his longtime companion, Michalina Wasung, their daughter, Ellenka Wasung-Lott, her husband Robert Wilson and their children Henry and Saza, all of Townshend, his parents Norman and Junellen Lott of Marathon, Fla., sisters Randi Lott of Solola, Guatemala and Junellen Lott of Montague, Prince Edward Island, a brother Steve Lott of Townshend, nephews and many friends.
FUNERAL NOTICE: A Celebration of Howard's Life will be held on his birthday, Tuesday, January 15th from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Phelps Barn at the Grafton Inn. The family requests that donations be made to the Free Care Fund at Grace Cottage Hospital in Townshend.
