Obituary

Christopher Dylan Howerton, born March 2, 2002 in Stillwater, OK. passed from this world March 19, 2021 in Stillwater, at the age of 19. The funeral will begin at 2:00 pm on Monday, March 29, 2021 at Bible Baptist Church in Stillwater with burial following at the Carney Cemetery. Strode Funeral Home and Cremation is in charge of arrangements.

Christopher was the beloved son of Brett and Mendy Howerton of Stillwater. The grandson of Bob and Sharon Sorrels of Stillwater, and was engaged to Julianne McBane of Stillwater. Christopher had seven siblings; Trevor Howerton of Moore, OK., Clay Howerton of Wichita Falls, Tx., Hayley Swigart of Choctow, OK., Lindsay Caudillo of Guthrie, OK., Chace Howerton, Chandler Howerton and Preslie Howerton all of Stillwater. He has numerous nieces and nephews.

Christopher came into the Howerton home when he was 2 years of age, and to say he was the sweetest and cutest little boy they had had in their home, isn’t an exaggeration. The Howerton’s hadn’t planned on adopting a boy, but this one stole his momma’s heart and he wasn’t going anywhere. So, they adopted a boy and a girl! Mendy is adopted and has always known in her heart from a young age she wanted to adopt children. Her dream came true. But fostering until adoption day is a lot different than just bringing a baby home from the hospital. There are a lot of struggles along the way, heart-wrenching struggles. But nothing that compares to a young son taken so early.

Explaining Christopher’s personality on paper will take a lot of adjectives. But the biggest trait was sweetness. Even if he was in big trouble from disobedience! Another great thing about this little boy was, he could keep himself entertained with whatever was available. And I don’t mean television or video games! He loved to roam the outdoors, fidget with things either by tearing them apart or putting them together. He loved all his pets, (although he never cried when one died or left!) After Christopher had learned to read really well opened another passion for him. He loved reading! He liked Clive Cussler novels, but his favorite thing to read was books on random facts. Christopher had a lot of facts running through that smart brain of his. He’d pop out the most random, useless facts at any given moment! But every now and then, his parents would say “I wonder…” and ask Christopher if he knew the answer. He always did. They didn’t fact check him often!

Christopher grew up in Bible Baptist Church and loved being a part of many activities/classes/ministries. He was a part of their First Claim Youth group all of his teenage life. He went to summer camp with them every year from 3rd grade up until his senior year of high school. There wasn’t any activity Christopher didn’t enjoy being a part of. But I’d say the thing that he did at church that wasn’t your typical teenage boy’s nature, was to sing! Christopher loved to sing! From the time he was 4 years old and sang in the Pee Wee Program, on up until he left home, that boy would sing with no holding back! But all this church activity would have been without purpose except for the fact on June 14, 2009 Christopher put his trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. Christopher asked Jesus Christ to forgive his young sinful self. Specifically, he asked Jesus to ‘throw his sins into the deep blue sea!’ And ever since that day Christopher had no doubt that Christ did that very thing.

“And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.” --- 1 John 5:11-13

The family has requested memorial donations be made to CASA For Kids, 315 W 6th Ave Ste 205, Stillwater, OK 74074
