Death – Obituaries : (MARKET NEWS) – Friends and families are mourning the death of Colton Howard, 18 year old Indiana farmer who died tragically in a farm accident.
We learned of the deceased through the following tribute posted on social media by The Punk Rock Farmer
This is not meant to make anyone feel bad on Thanksgiving, rather to give you another reason to be thankful. This is Colton Howard and his funeral was yesterday.
We posted about him in a #farmerdown post. As I learned more about him it just didn’t seem right not to talk about him today. He was a Hoosier farmer and only 18. He died tragically in a farm accident.
Remember him today and all farmers who give life and limb so you can put food on your table. Agriculture is probably not something the general public thinks of as a dangerous occupation, but is one of the most dangerous occupations one can have.
Farmers don’t get parades or memorials or days for our fallen, yet farmers are the very foundation upon which our society exists. Thank you Colton and all farmers who give the ultimate sacrifice. Your season is over and your harvest is done.
Those of us here will keep you close to our hearts and look to you as an example for the rest of us. On the 8th day… God made a FARMER.
The following are some tributes posted on social media to honor the life and the legacy of the deceased.
This just shows how amazing our small community is. Please continue to pray for the Howard family today and the days to come. They lost there young son Colton Howard to a farming accident.
