Jesse Garon Presley

November 12, 2021 | 3 comments

Jesse Garon Presley 56, of Holmen, passed away unexpectedly at his home.

He was born Brian Patrick Howe to Mary Howe on February 24, 1966 in La Crosse, WI

Jesse was Elvis Presley’s biggest fan. His ability to recount random Elvis trivia was impressive. He could tell you anything you ever wanted to know about the King, his concert locations, songs and timelines of Elvis’ life.  At one point, he lived in Las Vegas and was a remarkable Elvis impersonator.

Jesse enjoyed spending time with family and never turned down a home cooked meal.

He was a brilliant classic car enthusiast. He loved to discuss in depth, over a pot of coffee, bumper to bumper any make or model. Jesse was especially passionate about Lincolns. He was very proud of his 2000 Lincoln Town Car which he enjoyed talking about, caring for, and keeping meticulously maintained.

Jesse is survived by his sister, Brenda Howe, 3 brothers, Bruce (Dawn) Howe, Brent Howe, Robert (Brittany) Cannon and several nieces, nephews, aunts, and many cousins.

He is preceded in death by his mother, Mary Cannon (Howe), stepfather, Ivan Cannon, 6 uncles, Floyd Howe, Robert Howe, James (Elaine) Howe, Walt Howe, Don Howe, George Howe, aunt, Grace Howe, and cousins.

Now the time has come, the end is here, I will say it clear.

As I lay to rest, I would like you to know-

If there is a car that you see or a song that you hear, it is a reminder –

that I am at peace.  And in my life, I did it my way.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Wednesday, November 17th from 1pm-3pm at Robins Nest Bar and Grill 328 Goddard Street La Crosse, WI

    I am deeply saddened by the sudden loss of cousin Brian. Brian and I had been in touch frequently over this past year or so, and shared many memories of the old days.
    We would also talk about what he was doing with his car, he was always waxing it, and took pride in restoring his Lincoln to top condition. He was a very caring person. Would always ask how everyone in my family was doing and to tell them “Hi”.
    I will remember many good times over the years, including when we used to go to Country Kitchen in LaCrosse for a piece of pie and coffee and talk for hours.

    My deepest condolences. Love, Chris

    We were so sorry to hear about Brian’s sudden death. I’m glad I had the chance to talk with him last year. He was so caring and concerned about my Mom’s health! He really was one in a million!! With Love, Ruthie
