Nicholas "Nick" Howard
Help us celebrate Nicholas! Please share your stories and photos, and invite others who remember Nicholas.
Nicholas Howard passed away unexpectedly at the age of 25 on December 20, 2021 in Salinas, CA. He was a beloved son, grandson, brother, cousin and friend to many. Nick always had a go getter attitude and pursued his dreams with a joie de vivre.
Left to cherish his memory are his mother Dawnett; brothers Jay, Eric, and Xavier; sister Christian; step-brothers Zach and Alex; grandparents Gerald & Francis Gerstenslager; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. He was preceded in death by his grandmother, Louise Scranton.
Nick was a graduate of Revere High School, Class of 2015 where he was a part of the lacrosse team. In Ohio he enjoyed many of his favorite activities such as creating art, fishing, snowboarding, hiking, being outdoors, skateboarding, technology (RC cars and drones), and cooking for his grandmother. In 2018 Nick followed his dream and traveled across the country to California where he continued to embrace life and do the things he loved.
Nick was very family oriented and often called home and shared tales of his adventures. There was never a dull moment whenever Nick was in a room and there was an aura about him that naturally gravitated you to his light, which was always expressed in what he was doing, whether it be crab fishing on the coast or flying and testing drones. He had a light and love about life that we can only hope reflects in ourselves after his passing.
