John Arthur Howlett USMCR (ret), 66, Bakersfield, CA

John Arthur Howlett was born March 2, 1947 in Bakersfield, Ca.

A lifelong Bakersfield resident, he attended Potomac Elementary School, Lincoln Jr. High and Bakersfield High School. He served in the United States Marine Corps from March 22, 1966 to March 1, 1969 when he then joined the Marines Corps Reserves on February 23, 1972 and served proudly until his retirement. He was a decorated veteran.

John married Sheila Williams on December 1, 1979, two years after they met. Together they loved and cherished all of their children during their 29 years of marriage. John Howlett began working for the United States Postal Service in 1969. From 1979 until his retirement in 2005, he had the privilege and the pleasure to be the mailman in Quailwood and surrounding communities. On the evening of September 26th, 2013 the Lord called John home. The cause of his passing was a mild stroke, followed by a heart attack a few days later.

John is survived by his sister, his 6 Children, 14 Grandchildren and 5 Great-Grandchildren.

A viewing is scheduled on Friday, October 4 from 6pm to 9pm at Alma Funeral Chapel, 2130 E. California Avenue, and a memorial service is scheduled for Saturday, October 5 at 10am, at RiverLakes Community Church, 4301 Calloway Drive.
