Robert George Howard, 56, of Kittanning, passed away on Monday, May 16, 2022 at Armstrong County Memorial Hospital. He was born January 17, 1966 in Kittanning to the late George Esley and Mary Ellen Howard. Robert was a residential program supervisor for the mentally challenged in his early years before he became disabled and blind. He was a former member of the Kittanning Men’s Club which he enjoyed going to “the club”. He was a free spirit who loved motocross when he was growing up, was a practical joker, and loved the Waves of Thunder car show in Kittanning. He studied electronics at Lenape Vo-Tech and raced motocross for five and a half years. Robert enjoyed playing darts with his uncle Terry and his father, George. He especially enjoyed being with his family and friends. He loved to joke and pick with his kids, nieces, nephews and everyone that was close to him. He was a very protective big brother. He was always supportive of family and friends and loved with all of his heart. Robert loved his grandkids and enjoyed hearing all of the shenanigans they’d get into and hearing their laughter. He loved a good book. Robert loved his kids no matter what.
