Howard S. Baldwin

Obituary Condolences

Howard S. Baldwin, 73, of Scottsdale, died suddenly on July 22 while vacationing with his family in the Caribbean. Originally from Connecticut, Howard moved to Arizona in 1960. His business career included radio and advertising work in the early years, and insurance planning and sales later. He was deeply interested in the political process and active in the Republican Party, beginning with efforts in the 1964 Goldwater campaign. Appointed to fill a vacancy in the Arizona State Senate, he was then elected to that position in 1970 and 1972. He co-chaired the Reagan for President campaign in 1976, and was a delegate to the 1976 Republican Convention, continuing his efforts in 1980. A member of the Atlantic Council of Young Political Leaders, he was a U.S. delegate to the 1970 Atlantic Treaty Organization meeting at the Hague. He was a member of the Phoenix Sister Cities Commission, assisted in fund raising for the American Cancer Society and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and was a member of the Biltmore Lions Club. Howard is loved and greatly missed by his family: his wife Kathi; daughters Lisa Connon and Kendall Ameduri; son-in-law Jim Ameduri; grandchildren Gabe Connon and Andrew, Ashley and Tyler Ameduri; and great-grandson Orion Connon. A memorial service will be held Thursday, August 7, at 11:00 a.m. at Christ Church Lutheran, 3901 E. Indian School Road, Phoenix. With Howard's strong commitment to building for the future, the family requests donations to the Christ Lutheran School Building Fund in lieu of flowers. Donations can be mailed to 3901 E. Indian School Road, Phoenix, AZ 85018.
