Howie Jelinski

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Howie Jelinski. After a courageous battle with leukemia, Howie passed surrounded by his loving family; wife Michelle, daughter Anna, sons Steven and Matthew Reisinger, beloved mother Nancy Jelinski, sister Judy Dahl (Rod), brothers; Marty (Tami), Norb (Gayle), Paul and Dave (Sherri) as well as his nieces and nephews. Howie was predeceased by his father Henry Jelinski.
Howie brought joy and laughter to all who knew him. Generous in heart and spirit he saw life in a lighthearted way and has left his children, family and friends with wonderful memories.
