HOWLAND, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – William J. “Huck” Seekins, 63, loving father, grandfather and brother entered eternal life on Saturday, December 10, 2022 at his home in Howland surrounded by family.

Bill was born on July 19, 1959 in Warren, Ohio, a son of William W. and Anne J. (Uhrin) Seekins.

Bill was a 1977 graduate of Howland High School where he was on the wrestling team and played the trumpet in the marching band.
