Brian Edward Howell, 56, of Lapel, passed away on December 30, 2022 at Beaumont Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center following an extended illness.   He was born in Noblesville, IN on February 8, 1966 to Ernest and Sharon (Cox) Howell.

Brian was very mechanically inclined.  He worked at Deflecto, LLC for more than 18 years, in the warehouse and as a maintenance worker, before working in his brother’s masonry business.  He spent most of his free time working on various cars in his garage, but he was especially fond of his 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle.  Brian also enjoyed building model airplanes and spending time with his family, who will miss him dearly.

Brian is survived by his father; one son, Ian Howell of Fishers; one sister, Kathy (Bryon) Meyer of Carmel; one brother, Tom Howell of Lapel; one niece, Valerie Howell; two nephews, Kevin Meyer and Dylan Meyer; and a beloved cat, Baby Squeakers.

He is preceded in death by his mother; and one nephew, Eric Meyer.
