William Thomas Howell, 72, of Davis passed away Saturday, July 21, 2007 at his home. He had been an area resident for 22 years.
Bill was born February 23, 1935 in Hollywood, California to Clarence and Alice Howell. He grew up in Lakeport, California and owned a ranch for many years. Bill was a life member of the Lake County Historical Society and avidly read all of the history. As a youth, Bill was an outdoorsman. He served in the U.S. Air Force and taught survival training in the Sierras out side of Reno, Nevada. Bill clearly loved his little black and tan doxie, Sammy and the love was returned two fold.
