Robert Howay Obituary

   Robert Howay, 47 of Danville, was taken from us all too soon on Monday, December 4, 2023. Visitation will be from 4-7pm on Friday, December 15, 2023 at Kruger Funeral Home, 10 E. Williams Street, Danville, IL. 61832.

   Robert was born on December 27, 1975 in Lapeer, Michigan to Robert and Marilyn (Bade) Howay. He attended Imlay City High School graduating in 1994. Robert had trucking in his blood, and enjoyed driving a semi. He had been a truck driver with USA Truck since September 2014.  When he wasn’t working, he could be found hunting, enjoying watching and learning anything about farming, and working on cars. Robert was the most social person you’d ever meet- whether he knew you or not- and was selfless. He would do anything for anyone and everyone, except for himself.

   Robert met his wife; the love of his life; Alicia Shurr in late 2014 and the two were married on December 24, 2018. He leaves behind his wife Alicia; his children: Kelsey (Jon) Garrett, Elizabeth Howay, Eithan Shurr, and Jayse Shurr; two brothers: Todd and Kyle Callcut; three grandchildren: Raelynn Garrett, Avery Garrett, and Braylon Shurr; his mother and father in law: Ron and Carol Blagg; and his fur babies: Bear, Jovi, Nova, Jasper, and Winnie.  Robert was preceded in death by his parents: Robert Dale Howay and Marilyn Calcutt, a close nephew Hunter Felton, and a special person Denise Felton.

   Robert was truly loved by all that knew him and will be greatly missed. Messages and memories may be left on our website at, or on the Kruger Funeral Home Facebook page.
