Ben was a graduate of Alexandria High School and attended the University of Alabama where he was a member of the Million Dollar Band. He returned to Anniston where he worked with his parents and establish Howell Signs. He was a successful developer in partnership with his father-in-law, the late Brice Hill and opened several retail stores in the late 60's including The Village Shop, Howell Shoes and The University Shop where he influenced the lives of many young men, training them in the art of retail sales. He returned to his first love, Howell Signs in the early 70's where he and long-time friend and associate, Brian Henderson enjoyed continuing the Howell family legacy. Brian will operate Howell Signs for the foreseeable future. Indian Oaks Christian Church was close to Ben's heart. As the builder and charter member, he served his church with the same love and passion that he generously gave to everything and everybody he encountered. Ben will be remembered by family, friends and customers for his loving-kindness, grace and generosity. Anniston Memorial Funeral Home 3865 US Hwy 431 N Anniston, Al 36206 256-820-0024
