Obituary for \r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t Volney Howard III\n\n\r\n\t\t\t\tVolney Howard III – 11/28/41 – 7/14/2016\n\nThe family and friends of Volney Howard III all mourn his peaceful passing on July 14, 2016 in Heber City, Utah. Yes, he was a skier and no, he was not considering membership in the Church of Latter Day Saints….\n\nVolney was born in San Francisco on November 28, 1941 and thrived in many of his favorite spots on earth: Calabasas, Healdsburg, Santa Rosa, Bainbridge Island, Mill Creek and even Costa Rica.\n\nHe is survived by his wife - Andee, his brother - Alan Howard, his three children - Volney Howard IV, Angela Howard and Ashley Howard, and his six grandchildren - Volney V & Owen, Lauren & Colton, Alec & Kaden.\n\nVolney worked in the Los Angeles television industry for many years, both as a film editor and as a producer. With his wife, Andee, he spent years both as a wine grape grower and vintner in Sonoma Valley and selling and buying real estate in the North Bay. \n\nVolney was a “car-guy” and his real passion these past few years was drag racing. We all guess that since he had finally succeeded in driving his race car under 9 seconds in the quarter mile, he had accomplished everything he had always wanted to do…. \n\nHe was a proud member of the Bohemian Club for over three decades and his number of friends who now mourn his passing could fill an old-fashioned Rolodex…. Many glasses of fine red wine will be hoisted in his name for more than a few years.
