Michael Tyrone Howard, 35, passed from this life Sunday, Nov. 3, 2019, in Clarksburg. He had been in his usual health and death was unexpected.
Michael was born Saturday, May 12, 1984, in Los Angeles, California, a son of Tamye Calloway of Georgia and Tyrone Howard and stepmother Angela “Angie” Howard of Lock Haven, Pennsylvania.
Michael’s spirit is carried by his six children, Kianna A. Howard, Damien M. Audia, Donavan R.M. Lough, Jayden N. DeMester, Tamiyah G. J. Howard, and Caleigh Marie Butler, and siblings, Marcus T. Howard, Daniel J. Howard, Jasmine A. Howard, Kenneth Calloway, Zavius Clark, Jamirum Calloway, and Lillian Calloway.
Michael was born one minute ahead of his twin brother Marcus Tyrrod. The brothers would grow up in Elkins where they lived with their father Tyrone and stepmom Angie. Michael attended grade school and his freshman and sophomore years of high school in Elkins. The family then moved to Lock Haven, Pennsylvania where he graduated from Central Mountain High. Shortly after graduation, Michael moved back to West Virginia where he attended Clarksburg Beauty academy for massage therapy. Michael enjoyed and played multiple sports during his youth, but his passion was music. He loved to compose and had a beautiful singing voice. Michael will always be remembered for his quick wit, his infectious smile and his kind and compassionate spirit.
