The duties of a teacher are neither few nor small, but they elevate the mind and give energy to the character. The teacher is more important than what he teaches because they show you where to look but not what to see. Scott M. Howey showed us a gentle soul full of comedy and light hearted mischief. He was hilarious and often thought to be up to no good. He was just looking for a good deal. Scott loved to fish and every angler has a story about how the big one just got away. On Thursday March 25th, 2021 Scott got away from us. After a very brief illness, he passed away at Jefferson Hospital in Washington Twp. at the age of 41. Miss me a little – but not too long And not with your head bowed low. Remember the love that we once shared. Miss me – but let me go.
Scott was born in and spent his whole life as a Gloucester City neighbor. He was an avid Philadelphia sports fan cheering on the Eagles and Phillies. Scott had a genuine and sincere love for kids and worked as a teacher spending time in Bell Oaks School in Bellmawr and in Gloucester City. Early on he worked at BJ’s and also worked recently for Grubhub. Scott was an animal lover and will be fondly remembered as helpful and an all around good guy.
Scott is the son of the late John T., Sr. & the late Catherine (nee Moss) Howey. He is the brother of Jeffrey Howey and is also survived by Amanda Soder, her children Chucky, Joyce and Grace, his cousin Bryan Reisert, his aunts Lucille Moss, Clara Oorlog and uncle Cliff Oorlog as well as many cousins and friends.
Relatives, friends, students and neighbors are invited to gather with the Howey family on Thursday evening. We’ll be sharing fishing stories, talkin’ Phillies baseball and the art of landing a good deal between 6:00 pm and 8:00 pm at Creran Celebration Etherington & Creran Funeral Homes 700 Powell St. Gloucester City.
