McDONOUGH — Family, friends and brothers in blue bid farewell to Sheriff’s Deputy Nicholas Howell Friday in a wreath laying ceremony, followed by funeral services on Saturday.
Howell, 36, died on Jan. 3 from complications of Covid-19. He leaves behind his wife, Jasma, and six children.
Sheriff Reginald Scandrett described Howell as “tremendous” and always a “humble man and peaceful guy.”
“We will never forget what our brother has sacrificed,” he said.
Pastor TJ McBride of Tabernacle of Praise Church said that while all will miss him on earth, Howell has made his entrance into the Heavenly Gates to be with the Lord.
“Stay encouraged and prayerful,” McBride said.
Howell was laid to rest in Dublin on Saturday.
