He was born in Port Townsend to Rose and Kenneth Howe.
David served his country in the U.S. Navy
David married Carol Ann Shinn on September 16, 1967, and they spent 46 wonderful years together.
He worked many years in the logging industry, both in Washington and Alaska.
David was a devoted husband and loving father as well as a great friend to many and an amazing father-in-law.
David is survived by his wife, Carol; his two sons, David and Charles; and sister Cherri Kenney.
Dad was a person of few words and was great at making you see his point of view. He also had a soft and romantic side but wouldn't admit it.
He was also someone you would definitely want to have fighting on your side.
He was a great man and will truly be missed by all of us who loved him.
There will be a celebration of his life near the family's home in Port Angeles.
