John Wesley Howard

January 27, 1958 — January 4, 2024

John Wesley Howard passed away January 4, 2024 at 4:16 am at the age of 65 at Novant Presbyterian
Hospital in Charlotte.

Wes was born January 27, 1958 in Lumberton , North Carolina.
Wes is preceded in death by his parents, Patricia and William Howard Sr. He is survived by his children
Kristy Howard and Wesley Howard Jr. (Dani); his two brothers, William Howard III (Manette) and Brian
Howard (Jennifer); his three grandchildren Zoey, Max and Briggs; his niece and nephew, Caroline and
Ethan; and many cousins who were considered more than cousins.


He was raised in Stallings and was the middle of three boys. He spent most of his career as a master
plumber and he loved listening to Conway Twitty, Merle Haggard and most any old country or southern
rock music. He was an avid Dale Earnhardt Sr fan and loved watching NASCAR, with the highlight being
the day that Earnhardt finally won the Daytona 500. Wes lived a simple life and loved his baseball caps
and flannel shirts. He was a friend to anyone that met him and will be remembered for his wonderful
singing voice, his laugh and sense of humor.
