Obituary for Howard “Howie” Bishop

Howard “Howie” David Bishop, 75 years, of Tekamah, Nebraska, formerly of Roosevelt, Minnesota, passed away September 3, 2019 at his home in Tekamah, with family by his side, after a long battle with cancer.

Howard was born July 27, 1944 to EA “Bud” and Ruby Emma (Jessen) Bishop, in Omaha, Nebraska. He attended a country school up to grade six, then attended Gretna Public Schools. Howard was baptized and confirmed at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Gretna, Nebraska.

On August 4, 1962, Howard married Marcella Jean Scheef in Red Oak, Iowa. To this marriage were welcomed four children: Marcy, Tammy, Carroll and Tracy.

They lived in Gretna and ran the hardware store until they moved to Minnesota in 1983. Howard worked as a maintenance and licensed boiler operator, mostly at Warroad Public Schools. He retired from the school district in 2010. In 2012, he and Marcella moved to Tekamah, to be closer to family.

They spent endless weekends at the lake boating and enjoying family vacations, which most often included cousins. Family was everything to them. Howard was a great provider for his family. His pastimes were ice fishing, tinkering around the garage, spending time outdoors and golfing.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Marcella; daughter, Marcy; parents; brother, Carroll Bishop, many other close family and friends.

He is survived by his children, Tammy (Jeff) Schall of Tekamah, Carroll Bishop of Vadnais Heights, MN, Tracy (Jason) Crissler of Hopkins, MN; 12 grandchildren; 6 great grandchildren; many close family members.
