William L. Howell Obituary
WILLIAM L. HOWELL William L. Howell, known as "Uncle Willie" to his close friends died peacefully October 31, 2013 at Sarasota Memorial Hospital in Sarasota, Florida. Born July 13, 1922, the son of the late Melvin and Alta Howell of Columbus, Ohio. His siblings are Marion Rarey and husband Dick and the late Edward Howell and sister-in-law Marianne Howell. He will be truly missed by his family and many friends. William is survived by his loving wife of 67 years, Patricia E. Howell; daughter Sandi Zinser and husband Bill; daughter Debbie Ouellette and husband Hervel; son Michael Howell and wife Sharon. He is also survived by 5 grandchildren, Christian Zinser and spouse Denise, Alexis Seeland and husband Ron, Sara Howell, Danielle Brunstetter and husband Josh and Will Howell; 3 great grandchildren; Kailyn Brunstetter, Kensley Noel Brunstetter (to arrive December 26 of this year) and Alexis and Ron Seeland's baby to be born June 20, 2014. Willie had a love of sports so much that he started the first "Gridiron Club" at Corona High School and was also involved in helping start the first "Connie Mack" baseball team in Corona. He was in the Army during WWII and retired from the Calif. Highway Patrol. He also had a love and knowledge of horses and cattle, so after retirement he sold feed throughout the Chino Valley and visited "Flo's" at the Chino Airport on a regular basis. Willie had a passion and talent for roasting meat underground, which started a Thanksgiving tradition at the Wilkerson house that is still carried on today. Per his request Willie will be cremated and arrangements will be made by the National Cremation Society and a private service will be held at a later date.
