Howd Joseph Parry passed away Friday, September 26, 2003.

He was born Feb 24, 1915 at Granite, UT. Howd was the youngest child of Henry E. and Clarissa Blakely Parry. He grew up in the Cottonwood area of Salt Lake County and attended Granite High School where he played on the football team.

On May 26, 1937 he married his sweetheart Mitzi (Mazie) Tooth. They celebrated their 66th wedding anniversary last spring just a few days before Mitiz's death. Shortly after their wedding, Howd and Mitzi moved to Seattle, WA. During World War II Howd served as a volunteer in the Coast Guard and later in the U.S. Army. At the conclusion of the war, Howd, Mitzi and their family moved back to Utah where he began working for the Continental Baking Company. He retired in 1974. In 1965, Howd decided to go back to school. He graduated from Brigham Young University, 1971.

Howd and Mitzi loved traveling and spending time at their cabin in the mountains. The cabin was a favorite retreat for their family. It was a great place for Grandma and Grandpa to spend time with their grandchildren.

Howd was preceded in death by his wife, Mitzi; parents; and five sisters and three brothers. He is survived by his children, JoAnn (Stan) Roberts, Bonnie (David) Nielson, Robert (Eva), Laurie (Mike) Goeckeritz; 19 grand-children; and 21 great-grandchildren.
