Howard, Charles
1937 - 2017
Charles E. Howard Sr., age 80, of Lancaster, passed away Friday, August 11, 2017 at his residence. He was born January 20, 1937 in Keystone, WV, son of the late Willard and Viola (Sizemore) Howard. He was a Navy veteran and was retired from Anchor Hocking with 25 years of service. He was also a 50 year member of the Boy Scouts of America where he retired with 21 years of service.

He led Cub Scout Pack 34 at South School, then Troop 141 at St. Mary School. He served as camp ranger for 12 years at Camp Falling Rock in Newark and then 9 years at Camp Lazarus in Delaware.
