William "Roger" Howells, known affectionately as Roger, passed away peacefully on September 20, 2023, in Greenwood nursing in Hometown, PA. Born on August 5, 1943, in Connellsville, PA, he was a son to the late William and Dorothy (Marietta) Howells, Roger lived a full and vibrant life, marked by his friendly spirit, kindness, and love for the outdoors.

Roger was a devoted family man, survived by his loving wife, Louise (Barber) Howells, and two sons, David Howells of Lehighton and Jeffery Howells of New Jersey. He was a proud grandfather to Laura, Kimberly, and Christopher, and a doting great-grandfather to six great-grandchildren. His family was his pride and joy, and he cherished every moment spent with them.

Roger was a dedicated worker, having spent many years as a truck driver for the Jorgen Steel Company of Langhorne, PA. His colleagues remember him as a reliable and hardworking individual, always ready to lend a hand. His work ethic was unparalleled, and he took great pride in his contributions to the company.

In addition to his professional accomplishments, Roger was a proud veteran, having served in the US Air Force during the Vietnam War. His service to his country was a testament to his bravery and commitment to the values he held dear. His stories from his time in the service were a source of inspiration for his family and friends.

Roger was an avid outdoorsman, with a particular love for hunting and fishing. He found peace and tranquility in nature, often spending his free time exploring the wilderness. His love for the outdoors was infectious, inspiring those around him to appreciate the beauty of nature.

Those who knew Roger will remember him as a friendly and spirited individual, always ready with a kind word or a helping hand.
