The PSSI Global Services team is deeply saddened to share that on Wednesday, Aug. 3, 2022, Mike Howley passed away at his home in Florida. He will be dearly missed by all of us, and our hearts go out to his loved ones during this difficult time.
All of us who had the chance to spend time with Mike know his ability to get along with anyone and his sly sense of humor. From dealing with hard-nosed tech managers to helping other engineers in need, Mike’s professionalism and reliability was unmatched. He was the type of person who would be up for any assignment without complaint. That included the time he had to sleep in an uplink truck in the middle of Texas because all the hotels were sold out.
A U.S. Army veteran, Mike’s 40-year broadcasting career took him around the world. Mike had his longest stint at WHDH-TV in Boston, where he was an engineer for 20 years. Mike joined the PSSI family in 2017 and skillfully handled transmission for hundreds of live events all over the country. We were lucky to have him on the team.
At home, Mike was a loving husband, father, grandfather and dog owner. Mike will be missed dearly and remembered fondly by his family, friends, and colleagues throughout the industry.
Funeral arrangements are pending, and Mike is expected to be buried in Massachusetts.
