Montgomery - William "Mike" Howell passed away on Friday, October 23, 2020 at the age of 77. He graduated from the University of North Carolina and then went on to serve in the US Air Force as Chief Master Sergeant. Upon his retirement after 22 years in the USAF, he then went on to Civil Service as a transportation specialist, and helped to develop the CMOS program which was later adopted by other branches of the military and retired after 23 years of service to our country. Mike loved music, animals, and playing golf with his friends. Woodworking, fishing, and skeet shooting were more of his favorite hobbies. He was a friend to all and enjoyed making people laugh.
