HowardOct 9, 1984 -June 12, 2013 OKLAHOMA CITY William Andrew Howard, age 28, of Oklahoma City, died 6-12-2013 in Oklahoma City. Will was born 10-9-1984 to Diane & Robert M. Howard in Oklahoma City. Will graduated Edmond Memorial High School in 2003 and attended Francis Tuttle Career Tech with specialist certificates in Mig, Tig & Stick welding. He and his family are members of The 1889ers Society. Will had various talents and skills ranging from motorcycle design and construction, oil-field equipment manufacturing, and mural design. Most recently, he was employed as a Petroleum Production Specialist. His true love, besides Amber, of course, was art, including sculpture and painting, specializing in aerosol art. Will embodied all elements of hip-hop: rhyming, graffiti, dancing, and making music. Will loved the outdoors, live music, floating the river, and often was the center of attention. He was a hoot! A multi-faceted sesquipedalian, his vocabulary and quick sense of humor made him a joy to be around most of the time, influencing our lives with a splash of color, a dash of dance, and a mouthful of emcee. Will is survived by spouse, Amber L. Connor; parents, Diane & Robert M. Howard; and brother, Robert J. Howard; all of Oklahoma City. Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, June 22, 2013, at 2 p.m. at Metropolitan Baptist Church, 7201 W. Britton Rd., Oklahoma City, OK 73132. In lieu of flowers, donations should be made to the Luther Volunteer Fire Department.
