Larry Clark Howeth


Larry has been preceded in his death by his parents and his much-loved daughter, Holly Howeth Baldwin, who we all know is basking in the opportunity to see her Daddy again. 

Larry grew up in the New York area and lived there most of his life. He spent his early years helping his parents and grandparents around the farm and in the hot watermelon patch. When he found a break he would spend his time hunting, casting out that hula popper in a fishing hole, or finding the best swimming hole around. 

He graduated from LaPoynor High School in 1962 and almost immediately became his own boss, not to mention meet his beautiful wife of 59 years. 

Working as a farmer nearly his entire life, this was a man who had found his passion. He was never too busy to take time out of his busy day to make time for his family. Whether it be taking the family on long road trips or going fishing with the grandkids, the memories were always cherished. 

He was a man of many hobbies and talents. His free time was dedicated to playing the piano better than Jerry Lee himself, playing the guitar, studying maps and history, and hunting arrowheads. He was an active member in LaRue Baptist Church and he will be greatly missed by his family and friends. 

Larry is survived by his wife of 59 years, Judy Howeth; son, Tandy Howeth and wife Jill Howeth; brothers, Connally Howeth and wife Debbie Howeth, Hal Howeth and wife Sue Howeth; grandchildren Tanner Burch, and wife Samantha Burch, Cade Baldwin, Cole Howeth, Lane Howeth, Madison Roach, Breelyn Roach; great grandchild, Katelyn Holly Burch; also surviving are two nephews and one niece. 

Visitation for family and friends will be held on Tuesday, July 5, 2022, at 10 a.m. at New York Baptist Church, immediately followed by a memorial service at 11 a.m. 

 Memorials can be made to LaRue Baptist Church.
