Howard Keith Wyatt

Howard Keith Wyatt died on April 14, 2013 in the old west town of Wenatchee, located in eastern Washington and named after the Wenatchi Indian tribe. Wenatchee, a Sahaptin word, means "river which comes from canyons" or "robe of the rainbow." He was the second son of Capitan Jack Roll Wyatt and feminist Ruby Metzger Wyatt, and brother to James Warren and John Leslie.

Howard lived a courageous life; he trekked the veld of southern Africa, explored ancient tribal lands along the Amazon, and sailed the seven seas-rounding the Cape of Good Hope several times-luck always on his side. He spoke many languages, his wit and humor translated easily. He was a natural musician and an excellent dancer. Howard had friends all over the world. Howard was an engaging man. He was kind, and he received much kindness. He loved, and he was loved.

Howard's first and last love was Bainbridge Island, Washington-the most beautiful place in the northern hemisphere. A memorial will be held at the Island Center Hall on Bainbridge Island at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 11, 2013. Then, a portion of his ashes will be scattered at the Bainbridge High School Class of 1961 Memorial at the Port Blakely Cemetery. His remaining ashes will be scattered on the Puget Sound, like his father and mother before him. Please express your thoughts and memories on the online guest book at jonesjonesbetts.com. Arrangements are by Jones & Jones-Betts Funeral Home.
