James Allen Howington

March 24, 1956 ~ January 23, 2020 (age 63)


James Allen Howington, 63, of Oak Hill crossed over peacefully at home after a brave battle with evil cancer.
He is reunited with his beloved parents Herbert and Alice, and siblings Billy, Sammy and Elizabeth.
Left behind to carry on his memory are his children: Kelley, Adam, Elizabeth(Mike), their mother, Janet, and
James (Kathleen), Kimberly (Josh), John, their mother, Tina.
His beloved grandchildren: Will, Hunter Coleton, Nevaeh, Kirra, Aiden, Morgan, Jaxson, and Paisley.
His siblings: Carol , Terri, Michael, Boggie, Marty and Butch.
James retired after 33 years from Plateau Medical Center. He loved being outside working in his yard, playing (cheating in) cards, westerns and wrestling. James was also an amazing cook. He told the greatest stories, they might not of always been true or right but they were epic.
He was the definition of what a devoted father and grandfather is supposed to be.  
His Baby Mamas and children will never be whole again but James left them with enough love to carry on until they meet again.
James would do anything he could to help anyone in need and  keeping with that we ask that you would honor him and do an unexpected and unsolicited act of kindness to someone who needed it.
In keeping with James's final wishes he 
has been cremated without services.
