Dale Edward Howell, age 79, of Priceville, AL and Hilliard, OH, passed peacefully Sunday, December 20, 2020 at Hospice Family Care, Huntsville, AL.
Dale was born in South Point, OH to the late John Kermit and Marie Howell (Davidson) and graduated from South Point High School in 1959. A true Buckeye at heart, he received a Bachelor's degree from The Ohio State University and a Master's degree from Marshall University. He worked in Columbus, OH at General Motors and retired from Western Electric/Lucent/AT&T working in chemical waste management as an environmental engineer.
After retirement he followed his passion for farming and tractors by working in The Ohio State Fair as a shuttle driver for many years and then delivering seed for Pioneer International before moving to Priceville, AL to be near his grandchildren.
Dale enjoyed working on the family farm, old cars, trucks and motorcycles and especially coaching his twin sons in baseball, basketball, and soccer in their younger years. He loved coaching and was a mentor to many kids throughout the years. He continued his love and support by watching his grandkids play sports, never missing a game. He was very loyal to Hilliard, OH and Priceville, AL communities being seen at most of the events.
Dale was easy to befriend and always put a smile on everyone's face with his quick sense of humor and warm, heartfelt personality.
He is preceded in death by his wife, Joyce Ann Howell (Williams), and his son, Troy Dale Howell.
