Cameron James Howe of Westport died Sept. 6 in Santa Barbara, Calif. He was 20.

Born in Manhattan on Nov. 11, 1991, he was the son of Jim and Patti Howe and brother of Caroline Howe. The Howes are longtime Westport residents.

Cameron lived more in his 20 years than most live in a long lifetime, his family said. He had a zest for life and dedication to follow his dreams. This led him to attend high school at Stratton Mountain School in Vermont, where he graduated with honors while competing as a nationally ranked snowboarder.

For college he chose to go west and move from the snow to the surf, attending the University of California Santa Barbara. He would have been a junior this fall.

The outpouring of support and love from his friends on Facebook has been amazing, speaking about a person with the biggest smile and biggest heart—a gentle, sensitive soul who has left his mark on so many lives, his family said. He was deeply loved by his family and friends and will be greatly missed.

He was predeceased by his grandparents Mary and Angelo Peccini of Plymouth, Mass. In addition to his parents and sister, he leaves behind his grandparents Phylis and Burdette Howe of Ellington, N.Y., and several aunts, uncles and cousins.

A service celebrating his life will be held Saturday, Sept. 15 at 11 a.m. at Green’s Farm Church, 71 Hillandale Road, Westport. There will be a casual reception following the service at the church. Interment will be private.

In lieu of flowers the family would appreciate your donations to an organization called Stoked Mentoring http://www.stoked.org.

Stoked is an action sports youth development nonprofit organization. Its mission is to promote the personal development, academic achievement, and healthy living to under-served youth through action sports culture.

Its focus is on snowboarding, surfing and skateboarding—everything that Cameron loved. It has offices in both Los Angeles and New York City. Please let them know that your donation is in remembrance of Cameron Howe. Donations can be financial, your time, or sports equipment.
