It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce the passing of Brandon Dale Howell on Sunday, April 14, 2019 at home in Cape Breton. Born on June 11, 1985 in Sydney, Brandon was the son of Derek and the late Darlene Patricia (MacDonald) Howell.
Brandon will be dearly missed by the light of his life, Arahlyn Patricia who is daddy’s little girl.
Besides his father, Brandon is survived by his brother, Andrew (Kayla); daughter, Arahlyn Patricia; nieces, Emilie and Elise; cousins, Brittany and her children, Olivia and Mason, Mikalyla, Cody, Shelbi (Mircia) and their children, Eli and Ella, Chelsey, Devin, Matthew and Sarabeth who were like brothers and sisters to him; aunts and uncles, Glenda (Carlyle), Gaye (Tracey) Gayle (Brian), as well as extended family, Kristin, Jenna, Robyn (Chris) and their daughter, Layla.
Besides his mother, Brandon was predeceased by his grandparents, Gordon and Freda MacDonald and Melvin and Eva Howell.
Brandon had the love of the outdoors from his dad. Fishing, skateboarding, baseball, hockey (Montreal Canadiens), working on cars and trucks were all special to him. From his mom he got his love of music and guitars. He will miss his best buddy, Duke, his dog and four-wheel mudding with family and friends.
Brandon loved being the life of the party. Wherever he went there was going to be a good time had by all. His personality was one like no other and he had many friends that he thought of like family (20W). Brandon could put his hand to anything and succeed.
