Terry Howk

October 23, 1941 — March 12, 2022

Terry L. Howk, 80, of Huron, OH passed away at his home March 12, 2022 after a long illness. He was born October 23, 1941 in Oberlin, Ohio and grew up in Wellington. He then joined the Navy at age 16. He retired from Ohio Edison and worked after that at Vermilion Properties, where he helped with inventions. He later worked at Burnham Orchards, where he fixed whatever needed fixing and formed a special friendship with Joe Burnham, Sr. He was a wonderful woodworker and had a small business at home and also built much of his home. He loved to save everything and his family used to say he was the only person they knew who would take things to the dump and come back with more than he took. He could fix anything.

Terry is survived by his wife of almost 40 years, Marsha (Darley) Howk; children, Mike (Amy) Knittle, Matthew (Krista) Knittle, and Linda (Wade) Sharp; eight grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; sisters, Sue Howk, Peggy Richards, numerous nieces and nephews, and his little dog, Maya.

Terry was preceded in death by his parents, William and Jeanette (Miller) Howk; a son, David Howk; and a sister, Mary.

Memorial services will be held at a later date.
