Jimmie M. Howard

February 3, 1959 — September 1, 2021

Jimmie M. Howard was born on February 3, 1959 in Omaha, Nebraska to James and Eunice (McNamee) Howard of Ainsworth, Nebraska. Jimmie passed away at the age of 62 in his home on September 1, 2021 after a long length of health complications.
Jimmie lead an adventurous life in his younger years, growing up in the Cody/Kilgore area. Jimmie helped his Father work on various ranches in Cherry County which lead to his fascination of hunting rattlesnakes, bull riding and saddle bronc riding.
Later in life, Jimmie traveled the country with Baumann and Merriams Midway Shows running the Tilt-A-Whirl until his health declined and he was unable to travel. He was then able to help take care of his niece, Shelby and nephew, Derek where you would find them playing baseball daily in the backyard, playing board games, jamming out to music and styling their hair with mousse to look like his.
Most will remember him walking his Husky “OZZY” around Ainsworth. The family will remember him by being their personal weather man, his love for photography and music and fixing anything for them with duct tape. Although his health issues made it difficult for him to go visit friends and family, he sure enjoyed company stopping by or calling and he always had a story to tell.
He is preceded in death by his parents, James and Eunice Howard. Jimmie is survived by Sisters, Lori (Jim) Clopton of Ainsworth, Nebraska and Niki (Daniel) Songer of Norfolk, Nebraska; niece, Shelby Lierman and family of Wakefield, Nebraska; nephew, Derek Lierman and family of Norfolk, Nebraska; 2 great-nieces; and 2 great-nephews.
