William (Ed) Howard

William (Ed) Howard of Buckley, passed away January 23, 2016 at the age of 79 from complications of Alzheimer’s.  

He is survived by his wife, Marilyn and children Chuck (Jody), Cindy (Ron) Socall, Carrie (Paul) Lorkowski, Ron (Emily) Howard, Sue (Dan) Osgood, Judy (Michael) Harris, and Bill (Lori) Howard, and sister Helen Edwards. Ed was blessed with many grandchildren: Megan and Abby Socall; Zoe, Luke and Noah Lorkowski; Kayla, Brandon and Colby Howard; Ashley and Aaron Gould; Kyle Craig, Ryan Ira and Jessica Howard; Michael and Jerry Harris; and Jesse Howard. Ed loved his family so much and was always there for them.  

Ed worked in the trucking industry for 30 years driving local and long-haul.  He enjoyed working in the yard, reading western books, and playing on a 50 and older softball team and listening to country music.  He was a wonderful husband, father and papa and he will be greatly missed.  We are thankful that he is no longer suffering and that he is at home with our Father in Heaven and in the arms of Jesus.
