John Howard Obituary

John Patrick Howard passed away Friday, February 16, 2024, surrounded by the great love of his family at the age of 72.

John was born and raised in the Denver metro area and enjoyed his long career working various jobs for the City of Commerce City. He retired with the city after being there 40 years. From maintenance, to a police officer, to developing and running the city’s IT department, he did it all. He met and worked with many great people.

John was so proud of his family. He and his wife Barb had been married for 28 wonderful years. Barb meant the world to him.  John had a daughter Nicki who recently moved closer to him and he was thrilled to be so close.  He also had a step son Andy and step daughter Lacey who he truly enjoyed spending time with. Many of weekends were spent together playing cornhole, sitting on the patio, going to grandkids sporting events and just being together. Something that warmed his heart.  He was also very involved in his church where he met and made many amazing friends that he enjoyed gathering with them for outings or a good meal out.

John is survived by his wife Barb, daughter Nicki (Brian) and children Eddie and Jaime, step son Andy (Melissa) and step daughter Lacey (Zach) and children Audrina and Auggie, and sister Frinda Lauer of Oregon.

John will be missed by so many as he touched the heart of anyone he met.
