Marlin G. Howard, 78, of Enfield, CT, beloved husband of Karen (Schlanger) Howard, passed away peacefully in his home surrounded by family on Sunday, January 15, 2023. Born in Huntington, WV on August 31, 1944, he was the son of the late Dr. Arthur Howard and Minna (Galewski) Howard and grew up in Johnstown, NY. He attended high school at Williston Academy, graduated from Yale University, class of 1967 and received his MBA from the University of Michigan in 1969. He moved to Enfield in 1970 where he raised his family. Marlin worked as a Certified Public Accountant and Financial Planner, retiring just in November 2022. He had a great sense of humor that got him in and out of trouble over the years. In his earlier years he enjoyed playing racquetball and pool competitively. He had a passion for working and connecting with his clients, but more than anything he had a love for his family and loved spending time with them and vacationing with his children and grandchildren. Besides his wife of 56 years, Karen, he is survived by 2 loving daughters, Stephanie Howard and her husband Benjamin Beck of Boston, MA, and Amy Howard Andrews of Matthews, NC; his pride and joy, his 3 grandchildren, Hannah Andrews, Sarah Andrews, and Ellen Beck; 2 siblings, Barry and Ronda Howard; 5 nieces and 1 nephew. A Celebration of Life Service will take place on Friday, January 20, at 3:00 PM at Leete-Stevens Enfield Chapels, 61 South Rd. Enfield.

I remember Marlin from my days with him at Williston. We called him “Pooh”. Why, I do not remember. But I do remember he was one of the brightest students in our Class of ’63. He used to help me with math and science when I got stuck on a question/problem. May he rest in peace and his family take comfort in the very many good memories they have.
I just learned of Marlin’s passing today, and am so very sorry. He was my Accountant for many years, and was always so courteous, thorough and fun to talk with doing such a fine job for me.
Condolences to Mrs. Howard and their family.
Sincerely, Carolyn Rogers, Hebron, CT
