Staff Sergeant Howard Earl Mason served in the United States Air Force until his retirement. Howard Earl was a loving, caring, devoted father, brother, uncle & friend who passed away peacefully in his home in Dothan, Alabama on February 16, 2022. He received his education in the Frankin, Virginia school system where he graduated in 1972. He gave his life to the Lord at a very young age, and he attended the White Oaks Spring Church while residing in Franklin, VA.

To know “Howard Earl” was to love him. He was such a great man and certainly a big kid at heart. He was such a jokester; He loved making anyone laugh that he’d encounter and was so full of LOVE. He had such a nurturing & fun-loving spirit, and we all knew how much he loved children. He had a fond love for cartoons, fixing cars and listening to jazz as well as being a lover of all foods, and please don’t forget his orange drinks. All that knew our Howard Earl loved him.

Earl, as he was affectionally known, was born to the late Albertha Mason (mother), late Herman Frank Mason (father) on September 26, 1952. He was preceded in death by his brother, Herman “TJ” Mason (Frances). Left to cherish his memories are four sisters, Mary Alice Bostic of Maryland, Delois Hart (Tyrone) of Virginia Beach, VA, Linda Riddick (Gilbert) of Franklin, VA, and Pamala Bynum (Larry) of Franklin, VA, two brothers, Frederick A. Cross (Angela) of Suffolk, VA, and Roy Cross (Carolyn) of Franklin, VA; his daughter, Sharon Britt Eley; Earl had a fond love for all of his family and had a special place in his heart for his aunt Cassie and his niece Nakia Johnson including a host of nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, cousins, and many friends who will miss him dearly.
