Thomas “Tom” Vincent Howard of Indianapolis, Indiana and formerly of Warsaw, Indiana passed away at 8:02 p.m. on Thursday, July 30, 2020 at St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis, Indiana at the age of 65. 

He was born on December 27, 1954 in Warsaw, Indiana to Charlotte Arlene (Robison) McCleary and Lowell Bruce Howard.  

Tom was a longtime resident of Kosciusko County Indiana before moving to Indianapolis.  He was a 1973 graduate of Warsaw High School, then attended Ferris State College in Big Rapids, Michigan graduating with a Bachelors degree in 1977.  Tom worked in the accounting field for his entire life.  He was an avid sailor, he enjoyed sports, and was a referee in all major regional sports.  Tom loved being part of the game and never tired of spending his free time being a referee.  He loved his four sisters dearly and always looked forward to family gatherings.  His smiling face will be missed by his family and friends. 

He will be lovingly remembered by his four sisters:  Susan Howard (Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio); Mary Lucht (Indianapolis, Indiana); Sally Howard-Schou (husband Peter Schou) (South Pasadena, California); Margaret (Todd) McCleary Gordon (Carmel, Indiana); and he also leaves behind many nieces and nephews.  He was preceded in death by his parents, step-father, and his brother Jimmie.
