Howard Gilmore Cissel, 96 years old and a 31-year resident of Pinehurst, died peacefully on February 1, 2019.

Howard lived a remarkably long and loving life with his wife, Lucille Cissel. In fact, they celebrated their 75th wedding anniversary in March, 2018. He grew up on a dairy farm outside Darnestown, MD, served in the US Army in World War II, and had a successful career in electronics working for IBM and the CIA. Howard loved baseball and coached all three sons in Little League baseball. Howard and Lucille retired to Pinehurst in 1988 and made many fine friends while enjoying their retirement. Howard is survived by Lucille and their two sons, John and David Cissel.

There will be a short graveside service on Tuesday February 5 at 1100 at Pinelawn Memorial Cemetery.

Services are entrusted to Boles Funeral Home of Pinehurst.
