Obituary

Robert Snyder Howe, 75, of Hanover, PA, died peacefully at home on Monday, November 21, 2022, at home with his loving family by his side.   

Born November 21, 1947, in Hanover, he was the son of the late Edgar Eugene and Ruth Elizabeth (Snyder) Howe. 

Robert was a veteran and served his country proudly as a captain in the United States Air Force during the Vietnam War. 

He was a 1965 graduate of Hanover High School, Hanover, PA, and a 1970 graduate of Evansville University, Evansville, IN.  He worked in advertising sales and IT for Radio Hanover (WHVR and WYCR) and Hanover Cable TV for twenty-eight years until his retirement in 2010.  Bob, as he was affectionately known, was always on-call to restore radio and cable services for the Hanover area.

Robert was an aviation enthusiast, and was a member, past-president, and newsletter editor for the Gettysburg Barnstormers, EAA Chapter 1041.  He enjoyed the social experience of friends, family, a good craft beer, was a longtime fan of the Indianapolis 500 (THE Greatest Spectacle in Motorsports), and especially loved spending quality time with his grandchildren.

In addition to his wife, Cynthia (Sweigart), with whom he shared forty-six years of marriage, Robert is survived by his children, Elizabeth A. Howe, Sarah K. (Howe) Rodenburgh, Jeffrey R. Howe, and Andrew R. Howe; two grandchildren, Heidi Rodenburgh and Henry Howe; and one brother, John S. Howe.
