Lawrence Justin Howell (Larry) a life-long resident of the state of Texas passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday August 7th, 2018 at the age of 56 while in his home in Oak Hill. Larry was born on September 15th, 1961 and was the first and only son of Bill and Rexine Howell. He was preceded in death by his youngest sister LeAnne Rose and his father William Byron Howell.
Larry is remembered by his friends, family and loved ones as LJ or TK (Army & Taekwondo buddies) and as Larry – to us he was Bubby and Uncle Bubby. He was the biggest, most excellent brother to KaSandra Verett, Belle Howell and his baby sister, Leá who met him in Heaven. Larry was Uncle Bubby to many nephews and nieces. He opened his home to his nephew Byron Geoffrey Verett with whom he shared his humor, his stories, and some sage advice no doubt.
Larry attended Oak Hill Elementary, Porter Junior High and graduated High School from S.F. Austin High. He is an alumnus of the University of Texas and proudly served with the US Army. He loved THE University of Texas (hook ‘em) and kept a soft spot in his heart for A&M where his nephews graduated from college. Austin was his home and he knew all the best spots. He was a son, a brother, a cohort and a cowboy looking forward to continuing his work in Equine Therapy at the RED Arena in Dripping Springs.
