Cliff Allen Howell, 71, passed away on October 7, 2020. He was born on June 5, 1949, in Terrell, Texas, to the home of James Clifford and Velma G. Howell.
He was raised in the Mabank area and graduated from Mabank High School. He served in the US Army in Germany from 1969-1971. During his professional years, he was a HVAC technician. Cliff was a private person, a man of few words, but he meant what he said. He was hard working, prideful, tough, and always provided for his family. He loved his kids and grandkids more than anything. He was not judgmental and was a friend to anyone who needed a friend. He will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.
Cliff is survived by his children Robert Howell and wife Teonna, Christopher Howell and wife Jana, Caine Howell and wife Melody, and Juli Howell; grandchildren Audrey Donhue, Keeley Taylor, Kameron Taylor, Claire Howell, and Grace Howell; brother Cleve Howell and wife Phyliss; sisters Rosemary Palmer and Janice Howell; and numerous nieces and nephews.
He is preceded in death by his parents; brother Robert Howell; sister Joy Howell; and niece Kyna Palmer.
