Justin Travez Howell

Justin Travez Howell, at the young age of 20, passed away unexpectedly on July 8, 2021. Justin was born on April 23, 2001 to his parents Stacey Howell and Marquitues Biggers in Franklin, Tennessee.

Justin had a bigger-than-life personality, he would always introduce himself “I am JH1”. Justin was never shy to the adventures of life. He loved to feel the sun on his skin and the wind in his hair while he biked the backroads of Columbia. He was very charismatic, showing off his skilled dance moves and sense of humor. Justin could spark a laugh or smile in anyone with just a flash of his. Justin was a man that loved hard; will forever be his brother’s keeper and his mama’s “Wussy Bear”. He had a world of friends and family that will so deeply miss him.

The family will receive friends Friday, July 16th, 2021 from 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM in the Chapel in Williams Funeral Home in Columbia. A funeral service will be held on Saturday, July 17th at 2:00 PM, with one hour of visitation prior to service time. Burial will follow at Polk Memorial Gardens.
