Cameron James Howe, age 20 of Westport CT, beloved son of Jim and Patti Howe and loving brother of Caroline Howe passed away September 6, 2012 in Santa Barbara, CA. Cameron was born in Manhattan, and he and his family are long time residents of Westport CT. Cameron lived more in his 20 years than most live in a long lifetime. He had a zest for life and dedication to follow his dreams. This led Cameron to attend high school at Stratton Mountain School in Vermont, where he graduated with honors while competing as a nationally ranked snowboarder. For college he chose to go west and move from the snow to the surf, attending the University of California Santa Barbara - he would have been a junior this Fall. The outpouring of support and love from his friends on Facebook has been amazing, speaking about a person with the biggest smile and biggest heart - a gentle, sensitive soul who has left his mark on so many lives. He was deeply loved by his family and friends and will be greatly missed. A service celebrating his life will be held this Saturday September 15th at 11:00am at Greens Farm Church, 71 Hillandale Road, Westport CT 203-227-2728. There will be a casual reception following the service at the church. Interment will be private. He was predeceased by his grandparents Mary and Angelo Peccini of Plymouth MA. In addition to his parents and sister he leaves behind his grandparents Phylis and Burdette Howe of Ellington, NY; and several aunts, uncles and cousins. In lieu of flowers the family would appreciate your donations to an organization called STOKED Mentoring http://www.stoked.org.
