Memories Timeline


  1. Howard was one of my favorite people in my life. From picking on me in Daddy's shoe shop to picking on me when he came in at visitations here at the funeral home. He was a bigger than life 'hero' to this redhead. I'll miss seeing him around town. God bless you all.

  2. My thoughts and prayers go out to Howard's family. He will be missed by many. He was one of those special people whom I will always remember. He could always bring a smile to anyone.

  3. Mr. Howard Tramel was bigger than life to alot of children that had the privelege of growing up in Linden. He knew how to pick at us and how to get our attention when needed. Eveytown needs a man such as he. I loved this man..he was the greatest. My love and prayers to the family and those who thought Mr. Howard was their hero too.

  4. Nettie, We are so sorry about Tram. Our prayers and thoughts are with you. Would love to see you again.
