Obituary for Russell Eugene Howe
Russell Eugene Howe, 78, of Capitol Heights, MD passed away on August 11, 2009 at Prince George's Hospital, Cheverly, MD. He was born on July 8, 1931 to Benjamin and Mary Howe. Russell grew up in Sunderland, MD, enlisted in the Army and upon his discharge, worked as a truck driver for a freight hauling company until his retirement in 1985. Russell and his wife Katrina Morsell Howe were married in November 1959 and for 49 years he was a sensitive, doting, caring husband and provider. His sense of humor and playfulness touched those around him. In spite of the hard battles he had with the slowly debilitating illness, he always gave you a smile when you needed one. He shared what he could with others when asked and was willing to do more if need be. Russell also expected to be treated with respect and understanding, for those were the traits he lived by. With Russ, do good by him, he would do good by you. He is survived by his loving wife Katrina; brothers, Lawrence, Raymond and Robert; sisters-in-law, Brenda, Landus, Alfredia, Vily, Patricia and Gwendolyn; brothers-in-law, Rev. Leslie Morsell (Philomena) and Warfield. Also loving nieces, nephews and cousins; goddaughter, Eulanda and friends. He was predeceased by a brother, Wayne.The pallbearers were Dexter Herbert, Derek Herbert, Von Herbert, Wayne Herbert, II, Wayne Herbert, III, Howard Booth.
