Beloved husband for 66 years to Anna Howie; loving and devoted father to James Howie, Carol (Thomas) Mikoni, Joseph Howie, Deborah Gibson, John Howie, Patricia Murray, and Mary Howie. Bill was the proud grandfather of five grandsons and one great-grandson. During WWII, he honorably served under General Patton in Europe. He retired from the Air Force in 1962 with the rank of Master Sergeant. After retiring from the military, Bill settled with his wife and family in Lanham, MD, where he worked for the National Sand and Gravel Association. He and his wife then moved to Fort Walton Beach, FL, to enjoy retired life, before returning to the DC area.
Arrangements are pending for a service and burial at Arlington National Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in Bill's name to Cure Alzheimer's Fund (http://www.curealz.org
