Birth: Feb. 7, 1913
Dyer County
Tennessee, USA
Death: Jan. 31, 1995
Knox County
Tennessee, USA


Howard Dycus was the son of David Andrew Winn Dycus and Mary Frances Mosher Dycus. He had five siblings, with whom he was very close: Franklin Andrew (died at age 7); Minnie Ruth; James Herbert; Mildred Florence;and Emma Fay Dycus.

As a young man, Howard grew up in Dyersburg, TN. It was here that Howard met the best friend of his younger sister Ruth; Claudine Grant. Howard attended the University of Tennessee and graduated with a degree in Engineering. Later, he would become the Chief Engineer for the Knoxville Utility Board "KUB".

On March 15, 1935, Howard and Claudine were married. They settled in Knoxville, TN and had three children, a daughter and twin sons.

On January 31, 1995, just shy of his 83rd birthday and his 60th wedding anniversary, Howard passed away.

Howard was a loving husband, father, and grandfather and well respected by his coworkers and friends. He was an avid reader, enjoyed fishing and watching baseball, and was an accomplished genealogist. He had a quick sense of humor and was generous with his friends and family. He is remembered with much love by his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

His daugther read one of my grandfather's favorite poems at his funeral.....

Ellegy Written in a Country Church- Yard
~ Thomas Gray (1716-1771)

The Epitaph
Here rests his head upon the lap of earth.
A youth to fortune and to fame unknown;
Fair Science frown'd not on his humble birth,
And Melancholy mark'd him for her own.

Large was his bounty, and his soul sincere;
Heaven did a recompense as largely send:
He gave to misery all he had, a tear;
He gained from heaven ('twas all he wished) a friend.

No farther seek his merits to disclose,
Or draw his frailties from their dread abode,_
(There they alike in trembling hope repose),
The bosom of his Father and his God.
