Gregory S. Howard of Fredericksburg went to be with his Lord and Savior on March 28, 2019. He was 56. Greg is survived by his loving wife of 34 years, Diane E. Howard; his three children- Laura Holroyd & husband Justin, Kimberly Slagle & husband Mat, and Matthew Howard; his five grandchildren- Aria, Elijah, Mason, Hiram, and a little girl on the way; his parents H. Jeff Howard Sr. & Kay; his brother H. Jeff Howard Jr. & Belinda; as well as other extended family. Greg was active throughout the Fredericksburg community as a builder and realtor. He was an avid golfer and shared his talent as the golf coach for James Monroe High School. He had a great passion for the outdoors. Greg marveled at God's glorious creation through sunsets, mountains, beaches and quiet fishing trips with his son. Greg loved his Hokies and enjoyed many a football and basketball game with his friends and family. Greg did not know a stranger and was always ready to meet for a microbrew or a game of pool. He adored his grandchildren as much as he was adored by them, and will be sorely missed by all who knew him. A memorial service will be held Wednesday, April 3, 2019 at 3:00 pm at Hope Presbyterian Church of Fredericksburg. The family asks that in lieu of flowers a donation be made to the Greg Howard Scholarship fund. Donations can be sent directly to James Monroe High School in care of Kristi Allison.
