Cassius “Cash” Nyle Howe was born on October 4,1948 to Nyle and Marian (Jenkinson) Howe of Marathon, IA.  As a young man Cash learned his work ethic, hunting, and love for sports from his father.  His artwork, cooking, and humor from his mother, and patience from his younger sister Corey.  As a teenager Cash was renowned for his baseball skills, especially as a pitcher, which led him to trying out for the Chicago White Sox and playing ball at Wayne State College. 

 In 1971 Cash moved to Kingsley, IA where he taught Industrial Technologies and coached baseball, ultimately retiring in 2008 after an incredible 37-year career.  During that career Cash touched the lives of countless students with his content knowledge, attention to detail, and craftsmanship. Cash was named a Who’s Who in Teaching, his baseball teams set many records for Kingsley-Pierson, and he won the Iowa Games in Bench Press twice.  Even more Cash inspired so many students with his strength, kindness, humor, and passion of standing up for what is right no matter the cost. 
Outside the classroom Cash found solace and joy through his morning coffee group, casting a fishing line at Linn’s Pond, hunting for another record deer at his cabin near Westfield, pulling into a campground for a weekend and tending his garden to make his spicy salsa.  However, one of Cash’s favorite things was his gift for making others smile and laugh.  His legendary stories coupled with his charming personality allowed for many coffee table talks which always guaranteed a smile and a chuckle.

Cash’s greatest joy was his family.  Cash loved spending time with his wife Sharon, children Lance, Tanya, and Justin, stepdaughter Becky, and his 15 grandchildren.  From his silly faces and voices to his trademark potato soup Cash was a husband, dad, brother, uncle, and grandpa who made lasting impacts in the lives of others.  

Cash is celebrated by his wife Sharon of Kingsley, IA. His son Lance (Jenny) Howe of Kingsley, IA. His daughter Tanya (Britton) Van Marel of Mount Pleasant, SC. His son Justin (Jenna) Howe of Olathe, KS. His stepdaughter Becky (John) LaFleur of Sioux City, IA, is 15 grandchildren, and his sister Corey (Steve) Konz of Austin, TX. Cash is preceded in death by his parents.
