Howard C. London, age 61, of Colchester, passed away suddenly on December 17, 2020. Born on April 4, 1959, in Baltimore, MD, he was the youngest son of the late Hyman and Sadie (Safronsky) London. Howard married his beloved wife Tracy Wallace in 1982; the couple moved around quite a bit before eventually making their home in Colchester, where they raised their family. A man of great faith, Howard was raised in an Orthodox Jewish home before converting and becoming a faithful communicant of St. Andrew Church, where he cherished being a part of this loving community, including ACTS and Knights of Columbus. Howard was an avid sports fan, following the Red Sox, Patriots, and any team his kids played for. He coached many youth baseball and basketball teams in Colchester over the years, touching the lives of countless kids. Howard traveled the world with his work, building an illustrious resume in the pet industry for nearly 40 years. He persevered through many health issues throughout the years but always kept a fantastic sense of humor and a positive outlook, making light of even the most difficult situations. Howard will be sadly missed but remembered with eternal love by his wife of 38 years, Tracy; two sons, Andrew London of Los Angeles, CA and Connor London of Colchester; a daughter, Teresa London of New Britain; two brothers, Mark London of Florida and Darryl London of Baltimore, MD; his loving Wallace family and many friends all over the world; his loyal four-legged companion, Brownie.
