Charles William Howell, “Charlie”, 78, of Fort Myers, FL was eternally healed and went home to be with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on November 14, 2021, after his battle with cancer. Charlie was a Florida native, born in the small town of Ochopee, FL, and lived his whole life in Florida.

He was a veteran, serving his country proudly as a member of the 82nd Airborne in the United States Army. He then took a job with the power company as a lineman, tirelessly working to literally keep the lights on! He loved being on the water, fishing, hunting, baseball, being silly and his family.

Most notably, Charlie had a relationship with and loved Jesus. He faithfully attended First Assembly of God in Fort Myers, serving as an usher. He is preceded by his father, mother, and son. He is survived by the love of his life, his beautiful wife Maria; his sons – David & Greyson; his grandsons – Leighton & Austin; and her children – Karla, Julie, Hal, Brenda; as well as many other loved ones. He will be dearly missed here by family and friends, but we know it is just farewell for now.

A Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, November 20, 2021, in Sherrick Hall at First Assembly of God (4701 Summerlin Rd.) from 1pm – 4pm: Visitation will be 1pm – 3pm and a commemoration will begin at 3pm. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the Missions department at First Assembly of God or Hope Healthcare.

    We only knew Charlie for a few years. He was a great neighbor and friend. He would help us in any way that he could. We will miss him greatly.

    Love Lydia and Ed

    Charlie was more like an older brother than a friend. He was always there to help or just sit and listen if that’s what you needed. He was hard in some ways and like a teddy bear in others. A hard working man and one who always greeted you with a smile. He always said “what’s up girl” when he would see me. Tommy says he will miss Charlie blowing like he was just exasperated with it all. Lol Although over these last years we haven’t been in close contact we knew Charlie was just a phone call away. He will always be a part of our family and we will miss him until we meet again. God has called you home Charlie but we won’t forget you. Our thoughts and prayers are with Maria and family.

    I only ever knew Charles Howell as Uncle Charlie. He wasn't my uncle by blood—he was my Uncle by choice. A common theme between the lineman brotherhood. I’m not sure who chose who, but as far back as I can remember, he was and always will be Uncle Charlie to me. And no worries, because he had his own “unique” name for me as well. While staying with him and his family off and on from my toddler years through middle school, Uncle Charlie had always called me "Mighty Manferd”, however when he figured out that I ABSOLUTLEY loved tomato soup (and it had to be Campbell‘s tomato soup with a 1/3 less salt), he decided to reinvent my “special name” to “Mighty Manferd With a Third Less Salt”. He called me that, without fail, every single time I saw him—no matter if I was an elementary student, a college student, or married with my own child. He always loved me and treated me as one of his own. He will always be my “Uncle Charlie” and I will forever be his “Mighty Manferd with a 1/3 less salt”! He will be greatly missed, but I’m thankful to know that he resides eternally with our Heavenly Father and I am blessed to not just know him and share memories with him, but to know him and his dear family as my family. God bless to all of those left on this side of heaven. Until we meet agin!
    Mighty Manfered with a third-les SALT
