Willie Adolphus Howard, Jr., beloved son of Emma Howard and the late Willie A. Howard, Sr., was born on March 18, 1950 in Horntown, Virginia. He departed this life to enter his heavenly home on March 15, 2020 in Pocomoke City, Maryland.

“Joe Buck,” as he was affectionately known, was educated in the Accomack County Public School system. He moved to Wilmington, Delaware at the age of twenty-three and that’s where he resided for forty-six years. There, he worked as a construction worker, until his health began to decline. In 1982, he was joined in holy matrimony to Anita Howard and their union was blessed with one son.

To know Joe Buck, was to love Joe Buck. His favorite hobbies included: watching Westerns, riding around Horntown, joking, and calling his mother at least five times a day. His love for his family was love like no other. He adored being around his loved ones, that was the highlight of his life.

Joe Buck accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior at an early age and continued to have faith until he departed this life. He was one of a kind and will be missed greatly by all who knew him.

He was preceded in death by one daughter, Tomika Adams; grandson, Robert Baytops, IV; granddaughter, Keva Adams; and a sister, whom he called his “favorite,” Claudette Howard.

Joe Buck leaves to cherish his precious memories: his mother, Emma Howard of Pocomoke City, MD; two brothers, Milton Howard of Owing, MD and Larry (Sandra) Handy of Pocomoke City, MD; two sons, Terry Howard of Pocomoke City, MD and Willie Howard, III of Wilmington, DE; one daughter, Tycola Adams of Baltimore, MD; four aunts, Josephine Snead of Stockton, MD, Addie Dale of Snow Hill, MD, Virginia Davis of Horntown, VA, and his favorite, Elsie Robinson of Pocomoke City, MD; one uncle, George (Daisy) Handy of Horntown, VA; special great-niece, whom he affectionately called “Vae-Esther,” Nevaeh Howard; special cousin, Nevon Robinson; and a host of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, and many friends.
