Jamison Murphy-RH-Eric Rowell

Robert Howey, center, with freelance photographers Jamison Murphy, left, and Eric Rowell, right, at a drop-in July 20 celebrating Howey’s retirement from The Lancaster News. Howey worked for TLN for 45 years; he was sports editor for 44 years.

It’s hard to believe Robert Howey is leaving The Lancaster News/Carolina Gateway sports department. He has been the source for Lancaster County sports information for 45 wonderful years. To lose him will feel like losing a member of your family.

I had the pleasure of seeing Robert grow as a wonderful young man while a member of Lancaster High’s football team. He was always a gentleman from a gracious family.
