Remembering David Howell - Memorial Fund

We are deeply saddened to share the news that on January 2, 2021, David Howell passed away devastatingly after a long fight with lung cancer. 

David Howell was a husband, a father to his kids and many others that seen him as their own. He was a very sociable person even though he was such a private man.  He dearly loved his wife and kids which he would go the moon and back for by any means. David traveled all around the world, which through traveling, allowed him to gain extensive wisdom and compassion which he shared with everyone that came in his path. He was always the light of difficult situations as he would crack the funniest jokes to make us laugh.  Also someone that everyone went to when they had any problem or situation they couldn't fix. I tell you now he could solve any problem..... I literally mean any problem.


He was the proudest dad and wasn't scared to let it be known, telling anyone and everyone about the amazing things his kids and grandkids are doing from their jobs, to their grades, college, sports, and passions. He taught his kids to be compassionate, humble, and to never be scared to go after the things they're truly passionate about. He would say  "whatever your goal is work for it!" He loved cars, playing piano, watching westerns, reading, and  spending as much time he could with his wife. 

Your donations will be used to help with medical bills, and funeral costs, for the family.
