Birth: Nov. 18, 1875
Adams County
Illinois, USA
Death: Jul. 9, 1915

Fairview Cemetery Ref. Moffat County Courier, July 15,1915. Never in the history of Craig has there been such sadness and sorrow cast over this community as that occasioned by the sudden sickness and death of our beloved mayor, Edward C. Howard. And keenly has it been realized that his demise was probably hastened by the extra care, responsibility and personal energy which he so willingly gave to make the recent three-day celebration the grand success it was, that his fellow man might be made happier. Edward C. Howard was born in Adams county, Illinois, November 18,1875 and came to Colorado and Craig 12 years ago. Soon after their arrival here he and his brother, P.H. Howard, purchased the general merchandise business now known as E.C. Howard and Co. Four years ago last October he purchased the interest of his brother and assumed the entire management of the business. About eight years ago he was married to Miss Maud Baker, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C.E. Baker. The widow and little daughter, age 5, survive him. Other near relatives living are his parents of Brookfield, Mo., brother P.H. Howard and family of Craig and brother Joseph. The father and brother, Joe are expected to arrive this week, but his mother was unable to come. He was serving his second term as mayor of Craig and to all these cares and worries are attributed the cause of attack of cerebro-memingitis last Friday, which resulted in his death early Tuesday morning.
Undertaker Russell Pfohl embalmed the body and the funeral will occur Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock. The Odd Fellows will have charge of the services at the church and the Masons at the cemetery.
