On February 20, 2021, Brother Robert Warren Howard, Sr., departed from this world to rest in the arms of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Truly, a great and sturdy tree has fallen, but his memory will live on with his Brothers forever.

Brother Howard (referred to by his fraternity brothers as “Rub”) was initiated into the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. on April 14, 1956 by way of Nu Psi Chapter, Virginia State College (now Virginia State University). Brother Howard joined Kappa Psi Chapter of Omega which was an Intermediate Chapter in Washington, DC before affiliating with Alpha Omega Chapter in DC. He was a consistent and active member of Alpha Omega Chapter for decades.  He served on various committees as a member of Alpha Omega. One of his most significant committees he served on was the Social Action Committee where you could find him often times mentoring young men who lived across the street from the fraternity house. Rub was also one of the original Brothers who was involved with a joint program with Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. – Self Awareness Self Esteem (SASE) where he served as Co-Chair. Brother Howard also served on the local committee for the 75th Anniversary Grand Conclave held in 1986 in Washington, DC as well as on the local committee for the Centennial Grand Conclave also held in Washington, DC.

On the District Level of Omega, Brother Howard served as a workshop presenter for various District Meetings. He also served as Northern Area 1 Supervisor, Chairman of the Recommendations Committee.  He served the Third District as 1st Vice District Representative before being elected as the 16th Third District Representative in 1986 and served through 1987. As District Representative, he was the Third District Representative during the 75th Anniversary Grand Conclave. On the International Level, he served on the Supreme Council of the Fraternity. Another accomplishment of Brother Howard was he received his Life Membership and holds Life Membership Number 1199.

Professionally, Rub was an educator and business management consultant. He was also an avid marathon runner and hunter. He enjoyed playing golf at the historic Langston Golf Course in Washington, DC.

Brother Howard was truly a Brother and man of faith, where he served as a Deacon in his church.

Brother Howard Sr. is survived by his Wife of nearly 60 years, Jackie (a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.), son and Brother Robert Jr. (Nu Psi 1982), his daughter Cheryl (a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.), and twin sons Stephen and Stewart.

At this time, the family requests no calls or visits to the family home.  Any new information regarding services will be shared once available.  Please keep the Howard family in your thoughts and prayers as they mourn the loss of our friend Brother Robert W. Howard, Sr.
