Larry was born Oct. 2, 1961 in Montour Falls, NY, the son of the late Warren J. and Vivian D. (Mathews) Howell. He graduated from Dundee Central School in 1980. On March 13, 1982, Larry married his high school sweetheart Teresa K. Miller in a private ceremony held in Dundee. His working career began at Mercury Aircraft in Wayne, NY; but his true passion and expertise was farming, and over the years he worked at several area dairy farms, beginning with Nolan Farms, then the Gernold Farm in Dundee, followed by Purdy Farms in Canandaigua. He even worked for a period in the vineyard business at Fulkerson Vineyard. His final job before health issues forced his early retirement was in Ag Management with Seneca Foods in Geneva, NY until 2019. Mr. Howell was a dedicated long time member of Dundee Fire Company and Dundee Emergency Squad, as well as the Dundee Fireman's Benevolent Association. He will be long remembered for his unselfish service to the Village of Dundee, having served on the Village Board from 2008-2023. He will be loved forever by his wife of 41 years, Teresa K. Howell at home; 2 sons, Nathan Howell, and Daniel (Brianne) Howell; 4 daughters Jacqueline Scott 'Honey' Slavick, Ashley (Michael) Foster, Taylor (Zach) Sullivan, and Lauren (Mackenzie) Prior.
