Scottie Neal Howard


His legacy . . . Scottie Neal Howard, 51, passed away December 9, 2018.  He was born on December 23, 1966, in Jackson, Mich., to Roland and Judy (Frame) Howard. Scott married the love of his life, Michelle Szczesny on June 9, 1995, at their home. Scott affectionately known by his family and friends as “L.B.” was well loved by everyone he met, always lighting up a room when he entered and had a big heart. He made sure life was fun for his daughters and family and enjoyed being a jokester.  Scott would help anyone in need and made people feel like a friend even if he was just meeting them for the first time. He enjoyed fishing and hunting with his dad at his place up north in the Upper Peninsula, a place he referred to as “paradise”. A “jack of all trades”, Scott and his wife would go to flea markets and auctions and repurpose items he bought. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
