Howard W. Kenoyer
Missing his sparkling smile, sharp wit and beautiful singing voice are his loving wife of 63 years, Bea Kenoyer; his children, Laurel Schantz (Charles) of Grand Rapids, MI, David Kenoyer (Sue) of Plattsburgh, NY and Linda Kenoyer (Tom Clemo) of Livingston, MT. His loving memory lives on with grandchildren, Karl Schantz (Lisa), Claire Schantz, Sarah Schantz (Oscar Jordan),
David Kenoyer (Kim), Brian Kenoyer (Teresa Kenoyer-Shives); and great grandchildren, Lovell Schantz, Everest Shives and Joseph Kenoyer-Shives. Also surviving are his nephews, Robert Potter, Donald Potter,
Richard Potter and Gary Potter and their families.
Preceding him in death were his parents, Burr and Wilda Kenoyer; sister, Mary Potter; brother, Leon Kenoyer; and sister, Ardyth Kenoyer.
Howard was born August 10, 1926 in Great Falls, MT. He was raised and attended school in Pasco, WA. He served in the Army Air Force during WWII and then attended University of Washington, where he met and married the love of his life, Bea. He graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering and had a long, distinguished career as an aircraft electronics engineer.
He was a devout, dedicated Christian and served as both deacon and elder in the Presbyterian Church. He was an integral part of the church family at Eastminster Presbyterian Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan and then at Mukilteo Presbyterian Church in Mukilteo. His greatest joy was singing in the choir. Music was his ministry and he offered up his beautiful bass voice to his Lord whenever he could.
Everyone who met Howard liked him, and he had countless dear friends who loved the way his eyes twinkled when he smiled, his sense of humor that never failed, his compassion and generosity, and his thoughtful wisdom.
A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m., September 21, 2013 at Mukilteo Presbyterian Church in Mukilteo.
