James Lonnie Howard

1944 - 2022

James Lonnie “Butch” Howard, 78, passed from this life Monday, August 29, 2022 in Azle, Texas.

James was born August 7, 1944 to Robert William and Ruby Mae Howard in Duval, Texas.  A true jack of all trades and a lover of books, James spent most of his time helping others figure out solutions to life’s dilemmas. He enjoyed traveling with backroads being his favorite. He found joy in the small things that life had to offer. Most of all, James adored his family and the time he spent with them.

He was preceded in passing by his parents; sons, C. Michael Hadaway, Michael D. Rachal and Darrell K. Rachal; and granddaughter, Christian A. Rachal. 

James will be deeply and lovingly missed by his wife of 44 years, Linda; children, Nancy Dawn, Stacy Todd, Cynthia Inez, Bobby Lynn, Selina Denise, Bryant Lee and Cory Lane; sister, Wannell Smith; 14 grandchildren; 24 great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Throughout the years, “Butch” has touched many lives, and he will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
