Steve Howe Memorial Service
I just returned from the memorial service for Steve Howe and it was very respectfully done. The service was led by former Dodger infielder John Werhas, with eulogies from his former teammates on the 1981 World Championship team, Rick Monday and Ken Landreaux. Among his other teammates that were present were Ron Cey, Matt Nokes, Lee Guetterman and several others.
The service, which is the first of three in the next week (there is one in his hometown in Michigan and another in Montana) also had a video tribute to Steve, which can be seen here. His daughter, Chelsea, recorded a song in his memory that was played and his son, Brian, who looks quite a bit like his father, were both there with Steve’s widow, Cynthia.
Steve’s life was cut short tragically, yet he will always be remembered for his place in Dodger history and more importantly, for the memories he shared with his family.
