Obituary for Howard Carl Williams

Howard Carl Williams, 82, of Lapeer, died Monday, April 2, 2018.

Howard was born February 12, 1936 in Pontiac, Michigan to Donald “Roy” and Ida Mae (McMeans) Williams. He graduated from Oxford High School, class of 1954. Right out of high school Howard enlisted and served proudly in the US Air Force. He married JoAnn Catlin on February 12, 1956 in Kansas. Howard loved farming and was lucky enough to make a living in agriculture most of his life. He was crop manager at Apache Ranch for over fifteen years – it was said he planted the straightest corn rows in the county. Howard had a passion for raising and showing Belgian horses and was well known amongst horse professionals. Howard also worked many years as a gifted carpenter and really enjoyed his years working with Mike Neumeyer Construction here in Lapeer.
