Brandon Howard

Brandon Joseph “Howie” Howard from Bristol, Illinois passed away suddenly on Sunday, August 4, 2019. He was born March 5, 1995 to Gregory and Angela (nee Carlson) Howard. Brandon leaves us heartbroken, but with many memories. He enjoyed being a DJ, fishing, hunting, riding quads, and his motorcycle. Brandon also loved going on vacations with family and friends. He was a huge part of the family business, Yorkville Heating & Air Conditioning, where he had a special way of leaving a great impression on customers. He enjoyed making people laugh and most of all, he loved spending time with his friends and family. 


Brandon is survived by his parents Gregory and Angela (nee Carlson) Howard; his sisters Alexis Howard, Bailey Howard, and Emily Howard; his best friend and the love of his life Taylor Miller; his beloved dog Roxy; his very special God daughter Emersyn Grace Cooper; his grandparents Gregory (Cheryl) Howard of Russelville, Arkansas and Rodney Petterson of Aurora, Illinois; and by many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. He is preceded in death by his grandparents Kenneth Carlson, Margaret Carlson, Rebecca Petterson, and Velma Howard; and by his uncle Geff Howard. 


Brandon may be physically gone, but the memories he left us with will be forever cherished in our hearts and will put a smile on our face, until we see him again in Heaven.


Visitation will be held Friday, August 9, 2019 from 12:00 pm until 6:00 pm at New Life Church, 3205 Cannonball Trail, Yorkville, Illinois with a Funeral Service at 3:00 pm. Following the Funeral Service, Visitation will continue until 6:00 pm.
