Howard Lee Grove, 70, passed away peacefully at his home in Morrisville on Saturday, March 2, 2019.

He was born November 10, 1948, in Fredericksburg, to the late Howard and Vivian Reed Grove.

Howard graduated from Virginia Tech in 1971. He was a high school agriculture teacher and local banker for more than 15 years before returning to his first love, farming. Howard owned and operated Highwater Farm in Morrisville for more than 30 years.

Howard was a long-serving board member of the Casanova Hunt, the Fauquier Farm Bureau, the Fauquier Livestock Exchange and the John Marshall Soil and Water Conservation District. Through his service, he was an advocate for local and family farms.

He is survived by his wife of 44 years, Jane McCarty Grove; his son, Jacob Grove and wife Anne; his daughter, Lee Grove; his grandchildren, Charlotte and Jack Grove; his brother Leighton Grove and wife Carol; his sister, Charlotte Smith and husband Roy of Lovingston, and his sister, Sharon Grove McCamy.

The family will receive friends from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Thursday, March 7, at Moser Funeral Home in Warrenton, with a brief memorial service to follow at 7 p.m. A celebration of his life with the scattering of his ashes will be held at 2 p.m. April 27, at Highwater Farm, 12716 Marsh Road, Bealeton.

A really good man. He loved Fauquier County and the people who lived there. His dedication to the farming industry was legendary.

Thank you Howard. You will be missed by many. God bless.
