It is with a heavy heart that I have to type this message.
I received a call from Sheriff Howard this morning making me aware that his father, Doctor Farrar W. Howard, Sr. had just passed away.
Doc was not in good health and of recent his condition had rapidly gone downhill.
Wakie and Mrs. Howard were present with him when Doctor Howard made his walk into heaven and that is a blessing in itself.
Our family has lost a GREAT man and this community owes this man a tremendous debt for his military service, his community service, his longtime service as a doctor and as a friend and mentor to most of us who have been in the community over the years.
New Kent and Charles City Counties have lost an unbelievably dedicated public servant and more importantly a loyal and trusted friend.
This great man of God is now sitting at the right hand of our father and he is another of our guardian angels who are watching over us and those of our communities.
Our prayers and thoughts are with the Howard family at this time and they know that we are with them all and that we are here to do whatever they ask or need.
Doctor F. W. Howard, Sr. will be memorialized on Sunday September 18, 2016 at the New Kent High School.
This service will start at 3:00 p.m.
Please keep them in your prayers.
New Kent Sheriff’s Office
