Hugh James Howard


EDMOND —     A Funeral Mass to celebrate the life of Hugh James Howard, 8, of Edmond, Okla., will be 1 p.m., Wednesday, October 2, 2013 at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Edmond with interment to follow in Gracelawn Cemetery.

    Hugh was a 2nd grade student at Chisholm Elementary and a blessing to all who knew him.  Heartbreak doesn’t begin to describe the void felt with his sudden departure from this life.  We are comforted only in faith that he is now in God’s care.

    He was greeted in heaven by his older brother, Hunter Thomas Howard and maternal grandmother, Margaret Ybarra.

    Hugh is survived by his loving parents, Rick and Lauren; sister Hannah; grandparents Jerre Blythe, Thomas Richard Howard, Jr., Jim and Della Ybarra; aunts and uncles, Jimmy Ybarra, Holly and Spencer Smith, Monica Howard, and by numerous cousins, great aunts and uncles.

    Hugh was a light of love and joy in its purest form and will forever live in our hearts.
