Charles M Howard

February 3, 1939 — November 23, 2023

Charles Howard of Mountain Home was freed from his earthly shackles to be with the Lord on the evening of Thursday, November 23rd. He spent three decades working for the Baxter Bulletin, serving as the Director of Advertising. After that he worked nearly a decade for KTLO selling advertising. Charles loved spending time tending to his farm south of Mountain Home, raising fox trotter horses and shorthorn cattle. He had an avid interest in history, especially of the Civil War era along with family genealogy.

Charles loved the Church. He was a faithful member of the Wade and Cross Street Church of Christ serving there as a Gospel teacher since moving to Mountain Home in 1978. He helped many people and he was beloved in the community. He lived a humble life of dignity as an example of the believers.
