Mark D. Howell, age 54 of Waxahachie, went to be with the Lord on Friday, March 27, 2020, at home with his family at his side. He was born August 10, 1965, in Corsicana, Texas, to Raymond and Martha (Mixon) Howell.

Mark grew up in Waxahachie and was a member of the 1983 graduating class. He played baseball as the Indian's catcher. He earned a scholarship to Texas Wesleyan University and received a Bachelor of Science in Biology. Mark loved science and wanted to share that with others, so he became a teacher and coach. He taught Biology most recently at Hillsboro High School in Hillsboro, Texas. He was a simple guy and loved to fish. He especially loved taking his mom and dad fishing. It was always an adventure.

To cherish his memory, Mark leaves behind parents, Raymond and Martha Howell, sons Hayden and Hunter Howell, brother Steve Howell and wife Jaye, sister Stephanie Jones and husband Ben, special friends Jennifer and Danny Vasquez and Bobby Dyke. Mark touched the lives of many and will be missed by all that knew him.

So sad to hear the news of my good friend passing. My memories of Mark always include sports or fishing. One time in particular, he and I were fishing for white bass in Wax Creek. Such a good day we were catching them 2 at a time and had to use our shoe strings as stringers. What a memory. I love you, Man. The world is worse off with you not being here. Lots of love to Martha and Raymond. God be with you all.

Thankful for Mr. Howell as our daughter's teacher and as a co-worker. His love for others and his students will be deeply missed. The impact of his care for his students will last forever. We miss him deeply and continue to pray The Lord's comfort for his family.

My condolences go to Coach Howell’s family. He was a great science teacher. It was in his classroom at TLCA that I found my love for biology and science. I graduated my undergrad degree with a Bachelors of Science in Biology. His love for science rubbed off on me.

I just found out about the sad news of Mark's passing. I always found him to be a fine gentleman. I remember Mark running around at Richards Park chasing foul balls in the scorching heat and was laser focused on getting it everytime. Watching him as a catcher was always a treat as he was a beast behind the plate. More than that was his kind, gentle nature. My prayers for comfort are with you Mr. and Mrs. Howell, Steve and Stephanie.
God Bless,

Wayne Thompson
