Daniel J. Howard Obituary
Daniel J. Howard
It is with great sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of Daniel J. Howard on May 1, 2013 at the age of 62. Although challenged with cancer for over six years, he met it with an enduring positive attitude and fierce determination. Born in Bethlehem and raised in Allentown, Danny was the second of four sons of the late Thomas W. and Dorothy (Ozimek) Howard. Tom and Dottie raised Tom, Danny, Eddie, and Mark in a close knit family, constantly surrounded by aunts, uncles, cousins and close friends. This strong bond remained with him forever. Dan graduated from Dieruff High School, where he earned a PIAA State wrestling title in 1969, an accomplishment more often acknowledged by others than himself. He was currently employed at Iron Run Orthopedics, with a caring group of co-workers, who felt like extended family to him. Any one who walked thru the door was greeted by his warm smile and infectious laughter. As a loving and supportive husband to his wife, Shari, they were looking forward to celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary in August. Danny was a caring and affectionate father to his sons, Dan Jr. and Tommy, who both cherished him deeply. His fun loving spirit made it easy for him to give and receive much joy as Uncle Danny to Jason, Brandy, Brandon, Chuck, Megan, Jessie, Michael, Evan and Taylor. The fulfillment he received from his family was deepened with the addition of his niece and god daughter Megan, her husband Mark and their children Macaden, Paxton and Beckett. When we reflect on Danny we will always feel his love, remember his welcoming smile and hear his laughter. We were all so blessed to have Danny in our lives and he will live on within our hearts forever. Survivors: Wife Sharon L. Howard, Sons: Daniel J. Howard Jr. and Thomas W. Howard III, Brothers: Thomas W. Howard Jr. and wife Rosemarie, Edward M. Howard and wife Marlene, and Mark A. Howard. Father in Law Charles E. Boner Jr. Services: A calling will be held on Wednesday May 8th from 10:30-11:30 to be followed by a celebration of Dannys life at 11:30a.m. both will be at Weber Funeral Home 1619 Hamilton Street in Allentown.
