Francis Gordon Howell, Jr., 54, passed away unexpectedly October 21, 2019 at his home in Saco, ME.

Francis was born December 23, 1964 in York, ME, the son of Francis and Ruth (Malmberg) Howell. He graduated from Wells High School and attended Northwood University.
Francis worked many places over his lifetime, but especially enjoyed commercial fishing and sales.

Francis enjoyed the outdoors and loved hiking, especially along the Appalachian Trail. As an artist, Francis had a unique way of viewing the world and enjoyed painting. He studied art for many years under the tutelage of John Laurent of Ogunquit. He furthered his studies overseas in Paris. He truly loved life on his own terms, while cultivating tremendous long-term friendships.

Francis was predeceased by his parents and his sister, Karin Howell.

He is lovingly remembered by his sisters, Patricia Huntsman and her husband, Warren, of Cape Neddick, Sue Pollard and her husband, Bob, of York and Darlene Brook and her husband, Steven, of Shapleigh; his nieces and nephews, Dustin Boston, Zachary Huntsman, Miranda Booth, Lauren Toothaker, Justin Pollard, Abigail Brook and Haley Brook; as well as several dear friends, especially his best friend, Mark Galos.

There will be a service honoring Francis’s life at 12 noon on Saturday, October 26, 2019 at the Ogunquit Baptist Church on 157 Shore Road, Ogunquit with Rev. Jeffery Patnaude. Interment in First Parish Cemetery in York will be private.
