Delton Jerome Howard

December 10, 1970 — July 10, 2023

 

The late Delton Jerome Howard, better known as Ace Boogie, was born December 10th, 1970 to Billie & Alma Howard in Detroit, Michigan. Growing up he was a rambunctious child, but his parents proudly raised him in the church. He graduated from Detroit Mumford High School. At the young age of 5 he started bowling and continued for 35 years, with 36 perfect games under his belt.

Delton was diagnosed with AITL cancer in 2021, but he beat it not once, but TWICE! He survived two stem cell transplants over the course of 2 years, but sadly lost his battle to an infection on July 10th, 2023. He was surrounded by his wife, daughters and family friend. 

Those who knew him even for a moment knew he loved motorcycles, golfing, bowling, his family, and his motorcycle club. His smile was infectious and his laugh...there are no words that can describe his laugh. 

He never truly found a "home" when it came to employment until he met George and landed a sales position at Wolverine Harley Davidson. He truly found his passion! He sold many motorcycles and gained many friends/family. He was deeply involved in the Hell's Lover Motorcycle club, since 2012 holding various office positions from Treasury to Michigan Chapter Vice President and then President. He loved being a part of this extended family and loved being on the road with his "bros". Nothing else matters when he was bending curves and putting rubber to road with them. He also enjoyed being at the "office" as he called it when he was on the golf course. He really enjoyed being on the course nice and early and enjoying the hot dogs at the bend. That is the only time you may see him in a pink shirt that his wife bought him.

Delton was a wonderful and loving husband, "step" father, son, brother, uncle, and friend. Delton "Ace" is survived by his "warden/wife" Rebecca "Paradise" Howard, parents Billie & Alma Howard of Pineville, LA. Big Little Brother Christopher (Norma) Howard of Grand Prairie, TX. Children Zackery (Tanda) Witt, Sydney (Mackenzie Grgurich) Mitchell, Hunter (Murad) Rashdan. Granddaughter Delilah Witt. Mother in law Gloria Witt, and brother in law John (Tori) Audritsh. Many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, family, friends and his Hells Lovers family.
