Howard Henry Harner, age 87, of French Lick, Indiana, passed away peacefully on January 26th, 2021 at

500-bowling series.  Howard loved spending time with his grandsons Thomas and Landon, and enjoyed fishing, bowling, watching basketball, CB Radios, socializing with friends while flea marketing, and would never turn down a good buffet.
