Obituaries » Brown G. “Skip” Howard IV

Retired U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Brown Grattan “Skip” Howard IV, 63, of Warrenton, passed away in his home on February 24, 2019.

Skip was born on November 27, 1955 in Las Vegas, to Brown and Celia “Betty” Howard.

He graduated from Radford University with a bachelor of science degree in business in 1980 and from Troy University with a master of business administration in 1993.
Skip served in the United States Air Force for 21 years, retiring at the rank of lieutenant colonel. He then joined the United States intelligence community before his retirement in 2018. 

Skip had a profound love for God, his country and his family. In his free time, he enjoyed working his 50-acre farm, collecting rare pens and spending time with his cherished granddaughter, Hannah. 

Skip was a member of Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church, Freemasons, and Knights Templar.

His father and grandparents preceded him in death, and he leaves behind to cherish his memory his beloved wife of 37 years, Susan of Warrenton; son, David, his girlfriend Kristen Vetula and his daughter Hannah of Woodbridge; his son, Jason and his fiancée Kirsty Steyn of Warrenton; his mother, Celia “Betty” of Floyd, and brother and sister-in-law, Michael and Kristina of Harpers Ferry, W.Va.

Family and friends will come together at 2 p.m. Friday, March 8, at Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church, 10023 Wesley Chapel Road, Marshall, to celebrate Skip’s life. He will be inurned at Arlington National Cemetery with full military honors at a later date.

Memorial contributions may be made to Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church, 9448 Old Waterloo Road, Warrenton, Va. 20186.
