Howard A. Gillis, 75, passed away on Friday, May 8, 2020, at Glens Falls Hospital.

Born in Glens Falls on January 18, 1945 he was the son of the late Addison and Marion (Bain) Gillis.

He was a graduate of Argyle Central School and went on to SUNY Cobleskill earning his Associates Degree in Animal Science.

Howard’s love for animals started at a young age with his childhood dog Tippy. He was a member of the 4-H Club where he would show his prized holsteins, especially Whitey, and he passed his love of showing them on to his daughters. Along with his love for animals, he enjoyed his farm and especially loved his daughters and was a proud grandfather.

Left to cherish his memory include his children, Angel Murdock and husband Chuck Gamache, Cari Schlager and husband Joe, Maggie Carden and husband Jason; grandchildren, Benjamin, Cody and Molly Schlager, Addison and Darian Murdock; his siblings, Suzanne Daniel and her husband, and Jerry, Michael Gillis; along with several nieces, nephews and cousins.

Due to the Pandemic there will be no calling hours. Burial will be private and at the convenience of the family.

The family would like to thank the staff at Tower 2 at the Glens Falls Hospital for the care and compassion they gave Howard.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Howards memory may be made to the National FFA Foundation,
P.O. Box 68960, Indianapolis, IN 46268-0960.

So very sorry to hear. Howie & I were roommates at Cobleskill for two years and became good friends. We pledged to Zeta Alpha Phi together where we remained roommates at the frat house. We shared the same classes and the same circle of friends. Howie was always up to having fun and we sure did, although the Frat house father didn't always enjoy our pranks. Truly a great person and friend.,... Gene Mulvey

I am so sorry. I have known Howard for 20 years and was one of my favorite Stewart’s boys. Always with a cheerful hello and a quick gossip visit. Lately our visits were a bit sad as he knew he was declining but he constantly expressed the love he had for his girls. He will be so missed .
