Walter Wayne Howell, after suffering a stroke, passed away Monday October 1, 2018.  He was born November, 29, 1930 in Portland to Walter & Letha Howell. On August 16, 1958 he married Betty J  L Hook. They recently celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. Together they raised their blended family. 

Wayne spent his working years as a warehouseman at Rudie  Wilhelm Warehouse.  He was a hard worker and instilled a strong work ethic in his children. 
He was an avid outdoorsman enjoying camping, fishing and hunting in his free time. 
After spending most of their married life living in SE Portland, Wayne and Betty moved to Gleneden Beach. Beach life afforded them the opportunity to enjoy views of the ocean and graciously welcome friends and family to their home. Most days you would find Wayne tinkering in the garage, working in the yard or making sure any birds or squirrels that visited, never left hungry.
Wayne is survived by wife Betty, son Alan (Kathy) , daughter Janet Laughlin, stepdaughters Barbara Fiske and Kathy Etchemendy (Jean), brother Gordon (Barbara) and sisters Dianne Harr and Alta Conrad (Chuck), 10 grandchildren, 18 great and 10 great-great grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, daughter Sally Tetzlaff, brother Vic and sister Lois Krug. 
You are invited to a celebration of life that will be held November 18th from 2 - 4pm at Immanuel Lutheran Church Fellowship Hall located at 7810 SE15th Ave in Portland. Please come to remember, grieve, support each other and of course just chat.
