Howard, James Edward,

78, died peacefully in his sleep Thursday, October 12th, 2017 at Hosparus Inpatient Care Center in Louisville, KY after a long struggle with severe COPD.

He was born in Owensboro, KY on November 22, 1938. He will be remembered as Jim, our loving older brother and a kind, generous, and gentle friend. Though quiet, he was always present and supportive.

He was a member of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church. During his life he was a member of the Air Force Reserves, an investigative fingerprint technician, and an accountant. With grateful hearts, the family remembers his tender care for their Mom and Dad in their final years.

Jim was preceded in death by his parents, Junius E. and Velma (Ballard) Howard, and brother, Francis.

He leaves, to cherish his memory, his siblings, Anne, Angela Kaelin (Tony), Rose, Tony, Patrick (Rubiann), Jeanne, Mike (Greta), and Kate Weikel (Ken); 9 nieces and nephews, and extended family, and two special family friends, Donna and Sharon.

His Celebration of Life Mass will be held at 11 AM Tuesday, October 17th at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, 11501 Maple Way, with burial in Calvary Cemetery. Visitation will be held 2-7PM Sunday, October 15th at Joseph E. Ratterman & Son Funeral Home, 7336 Southside Drive.
