Vernon Howell, 93, of Excelsior Springs, passed away Friday August 26, 2016, at home.
Vernon was born May 23, 1923, to the late Calvin and the late Cleda (Palmer) Howell.
Vernon was in the Navy, enlisting in 1941, serving during WWII, and was on the USS Detroit headed to Pearl Harbor when the harbor was attacked. He left the Navy in 1945, and married his first wife, Georgia M. Cedar, April 17, 1947. With Georgia, Vernon had two sons, whom they raised in the Overland Park, Kansas area. Georgia passed away in 1982. He married his second wife, Eva M. Hughes, on March 8, 1983. She passed away in 2010.
Vernon is survived by one sister, Lorna M. Pigacz, two sons, James Howell and Dennis Howell, two grandchildren, Janelle Howell and Wesley Howell, and one great-grandchild, Libbi Shaffer. He also has several nieces and nephews.
Vernon had a very quick wit and was loved by all who came to know him. He will be sorely missed.
