Freddie Howell

March 6, 1944 — June 19, 2021

Frederick Wayne "Freddie" Howell, 77, of Zebulon, passed away Saturday, June 19, 2021.

Funeral, Tuesday, June 22, 2:00 PM, at Gethsemane Memorial Gardens, 809 W. Gannon Ave, Zebulon.  Family will receive friends at the home of Freddy Howell, 4371 Massey Rd, Zebulon.

He is survived by his sons, Freddy Howell (Kesha) of Zebulon and Chad Howell of Williamston; granddaughters, Hannah and Sarah Howell; sister, Ann Horne (Cremo) of Wilson.

Freddie was preceded in death by the mother of his children, Veronica Murray Howell of Zebulon and his mother, Edith Adell Howell of Wilson.

His close friends, family and community lovingly called him "Pops".  His battle with serious medical issues in recent years showed his courage in facing life challenges with a smile.  Despite his trials, Freddie was faithful, determined, and stayed strong until the end.

Freddie proudly served his country in the National Guard.  He was a longtime member of the American Legion Post 13 in Wilson and he was an active member of Union Hope Baptist Church, Zebulon.  He loved to grill and cook and was locally known for his delicious banana pudding.
