In memory of
Robert Lee "Buz" Howard Jr.
Robert Lee 'Buz' Howard, Jr. Dec. 7, 1952 - Jan. 12, 2021 On Jan. 12, 2021 Robert "Buz" Howard, Jr., loving husband passed away. He was at home in Vancouver, Wash., with his wife, Sharon Ager Howard. Buz was born in Portland, Ore., to Robert and Mary (Knox) Howard. He was raised in Lake Oswego and attended Southern Oregon University. His deep appreciation for the outdoors led him to landscaping. In 1994 Buz and Sharon began their own business, creating art and selling their work at the Portland Saturday Market. Buz loved hiking and back packing, with his greatest joy found in fly fishing. He considered the Deschutes River his backyard. For years he had great fun on the annual raft trip with his college buddies. He and Sharon camped and fished there often. He also enjoyed fall trips to Yellowstone with his brother Jeff. Buz had the best smile. The kind little kids love and that instinctively you respond to with the same. Even to strangers, he would offer a helping hand before being asked. Buz was a truly loving, kind, patient, gentle man. Buz was predeceased by his parents. He is survived by his wife, Sharon; brother, Jeff Howard; and two sisters, Cindy Howard and Jo Howard; and many nieces and nephews. Due to Covid, a celebration of Buz's life is postponed until later this year. The family suggests donations in memory of Buz be made to the Humane Society or a local animal shelter.
