Hershel L. Howell, 83, of Caldwell, died on Friday, September, 23, 2016 at home. Hershel was born Sept. 20, 1933 in Ketchum, Oklahoma, to Robert & Bessie (Hensen) Howell. He was the youngest of 5 children. The Howell family left Oklahoma in about 1947 and eventually relocated in Wilder, Idaho.

Hershel was a mechanic all his life. He worked at B&M Equipment, then Schuler Brothers, and finally at Symms Fruit Ranch where he spent 44 years. Hershel and Barbara owned Homedale Drive Inn for several years, until poor health made them both retire.
Hersh was known far and wide as the man to go to if you had a problem with farm equipment of any kind even though John Deere was his favorite. Hershel accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as his savior in September 1960. He was a proud member of the congregation at the Mountain View Church of the Nazarene in Homedale at the time of his death.
