Obituary for John Levy Howell

John Levy “Doodle” Howell, 94, passed away on Monday, September 10, 2018 at his home.

Doodle was born in Wayne County on August 4, 1924 to the late Edward and Vara Edwards Howell. He was married to the late Frances Leona Godwin Howell. He proudly served his country in the United States Army at the end of World War II. Doodle worked with the United States Postal Service from 1957 to 1989. His first and favorite occupation, however, was a farmer, and many of his happiest times were spent atop one of his tractors on the family farm. Doodle was an active member of Ebenezer United Methodist Church. He lived a life of dedication to his family and friends, and to his community. Doodle served his community as the former chairman of the Rosewood High School Advisory Council and was instrumental in the purchase of property for the new high school as well as the construction of the football field. He also enjoyed hunting and later enjoyed watching all kinds of wildlife.

The family will receive friends on Wednesday, September 12, 2018 from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. at Seymour Funeral Home followed by a service to celebrate Doodle’s life at 11:00 a.m. in the chapel with Rev. David Pate officiating. Interment will follow in the Princeton Cemetery.

Doodle is survived by his sons, John “Johnny” Howell, Jr. and wife Sue, Douglas Howell and wife Cheryl and Darren Howell and wife Kim; grandchildren, Denise Clark, Trent Howell, Deanna Wheeler and Paige Howell; great-grandchildren, Josh Clark, Jonah Clark, Brady Wheeler, Lane Wheeler, Lizzy Wheeler and Levy Howell; and several nieces and nephews.
