The funeral service on Saturday for Daniel “Dan” Howe was not only emotional, but an incredible showing from every part of law enforcement and emergency services he made an impact on during his career.

Howe, 72, would work several jobs at once in law enforcement and knew the county. As Andover Chief of Police, he also would work at the Wellsville Police Department and the Indepenedence Police Department. When he retired in 2007, he went right back to work for the public as the Town Justice in Independence.

The Law Enforcement Ceremony Coordinator at the funeral was Cuba Police Chief Dustin Burch and members of the Andover Police Department, University Police Department, Alfred Police Department, Wellsville Police Department, Allegany County Sheriff’s Office, Independence Police Department, dispatchers and ambulance personnel were in uniform and in attendance.

The salutes at the First United Methodist Church in Whitesville brought tears to the eyes of the family and friends in attendance and there was a stirring ceremony at the Whitesville Rural Cemetery under the direction of Tammy Wise who was presiding.

The Howe family is making sure the legacy of Dan Howe will continue to give back. The Daniel R. Howe Memorial Scholarship Fund has been established and donations can be made at Community Bank.

He is survived by his wife of 44 years, Kimberly Rounds Howe and their three sons, BJ Howe and wife Heidi and their children, daughter Charley and son Jacob, of Cuba, Casey Howe and his wife Deborah, and their sons, Pacey and Ryder, of Whitesville, Gregory Howe and his wife Jaime, and their children, son Wyatt and daughter Maggie, of Wellsville, and a daughter Kearsten Howe and her husband Jeremy Ball, and their daughters Delainey and Kerrigan of Sanborn. Two sisters Sharon and her husband Jack DuCharme and Sharlotte and her husband Thomas Way, a brother, David Howe and his wife Cindy D’Angelo, a brother-in-law, Gregory Rounds and his wife Vicki, as well as many nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased in addition to his parents by his step mother, Barbara Blair Howe of Keuka Lake, his father and mother-in-law Wilbur and Norma Rounds of Whitesville and a grandson, Frankie Ball.
