Ronald Howard

 

Ronald Dayne Howard, 67, of Beebe, passed away on September 5, 2023. He was born April 29, 1956, in Beaumont, Texas to Leon Howard and Ethel Mae Nichols Howard.

Ronald served in the Texas Army National Guard and later became an installer for a heating, ventilation, and air conditioning company. He was the “one stop shop” for anything his family needed whether that be electrical, plumbing, gardening, and more. If he didn’t know how to do something, he would figure it out. He loved his garden and took pride in what he grew, but he loved his family more than anything. Around the holidays, his grandkids looked at him like he was Santa.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Leon Howard and Ethel Mae Nichols Howard; brothers, Michael Lynn Howard, James Johnson; and sister Debbie Faye Peveto.

Ronald is survived by his wife, Robin Renee LaCasse Howard; sons, Stephen Wade Howard, Joseph Dewayne Gilbert (Terra); daughters, Jennifer Kaye (Howard) Bauman, Kenya Renee Gilbert Sanders (VJ); brother, Perry Howards; sisters, Darla Kaye Harrington, Donna Regnier; grandchildren, Andrea Sanders, Bubba Sanders, Chase Dewayne Sanders, Kendrick Kendral Sanders, Chase Lewis Baumann, Maribelle Howard; great grandchildren, Raziah, Zomarion, Zakari; and a host of many extended friends and family.

Funeral services will be held at 11:00 A.M> Saturday, September 9, 2023, at Smith Westbrook Funeral Home with visitation one hour prior. Interment will be at Meadowbrook Memorial Gardens.
