Obituary

 

Charles Bernard “Bernie” Howell, age 93, of Cimarron Road, Morehead, formerly of Garrison, passed away Tuesday, November 29, 2022, at his home.

 

Born December 3, 1928, in Carrs, Kentucky, to Wesley and Mary Maud Cropper Howell, he was the eighth of eleven children and grew up along the Ohio River on a dairy and tobacco farm.  On December 23, 1950, he married the love of his life, Jo Anne Lewis, who passed away in 2017.

 

In addition to his parents and his wife, he was preceded in death by one son, Charles Howell, one grandson, Jonathan Gallenstein, and one son-in-law, Dwight Clark. He was also preceded in death by nine siblings: Oleta Polley, Roy Howell, Doris Mackey, Warner Howell, Beatrice Vergne, Alice Howell, Harry Howell, Betty Barrett, and Fern Henderson.

 

Mr. Howell is survived by two daughters, Ann Clark of Morehead and Sue Gallenstein of Burlington; one daughter-in-law, Diane Howell Franklin of Burgaw, North Carolina; four grandchildren, Mindy Highley and husband Jeff of Owingsville, Stephanie Swain and husband Art of Atkinson, North Carolina, Bill Howell and wife Dana of Burgaw, North Carolina, and Joe Gallenstein and wife Alexandria of Covington; and eight great grandchildren, Megan Christie and husband Frankie, Zack Highley and wife Holly, Emily Highley, Ryan Howell, Blake Howell, Dylan Gallenstein, Eleanor Gallenstein, and Lauryn Howell; and one brother, Gene Howell of Bucyrus, Ohio.

 

Bernard was a loving husband, father, grandfather and friend who enjoyed his life as a railroader, farmer, and Christian. He was a retiree of the C&O/CSX Railroad, starting as a laborer as a teenager and advancing to other roles including heavy equipment operator, and foreman.

 

Bernard was very active in the Garrison United Methodist Church for 50 years.  After moving to Morehead 20 years ago, he attended the Johnson First Church of God.  He furthered his ministry outreach through involvement in the Lay Witness Mission organization and participation in The Gideons International.
