NO JOKE HOWARD aka BRAETON HOWARD Dies in Mexico After Leaving Cambodia

Post by General Mackevili » Fri May 10, 2019 5:45 am

Braeton Elwood Howard AKA No Joke Howard has reportedly died in Mexico City, after he left Cambodia. Cause of death hasn't been released, but NJH lived a pretty crazy life, so anything could have happened.

I think it's fair to say he wasn't very fond of the Cambodia forums for attention he received from time to time, so the news of his death comes as quite a shock as this is my second 'fan' that's died this week, but condolences to his family and friends nonetheless.

RIP No Joke Howard.

Here's some good images to remember him by and the video he made about his last day in Cambodia:

'This one hurts. A good friend of mine Braeton, or known by most as "No Joke Howard" has passed away.

Last week you called me and said "something told me to check on you" right on time and I told you I had been down and dealing with panic attacks, you told me not stay focus because you see the progression and you were proud of me. It's amazing how you can meet someone for a short while and they become brothers. You did life how it should be done and did what you wanted on your terms. You were the You are a legend brother.

I'll be posting some of our old radio show episodes in your remembrance the next few days.

P. S. Don't come on my comments section saying negative things about Braeton.'





'Its with a heavy heart that I write this. Im at a loss for words right now. I knew we grew apart over the years but I always thought about you & all the memories we shared when we were younger. I can’t listen to a single Tool song without being flooded by them. I was just thinking about you last night when I learned that Tool was putting out a new album this year. I envied how you were out doing things around the world and seeing things most of us will never have the opportunity to experience. One thing I learned from you was to never care what people thought of me & its ok to be different. Just be confident about it. I’ve always carried that with me. I’m so sad that you’re gone. RIP Braeton Elwood Howard.'

Maybe he shoved his camera in the wrong Mexican face and they dealt with him. They can be faster over there than here.

The final digression. May he rest.

I enjoyed his videos and thought he was interesting. Life is messy and he was not afraid to bear everything in his life with others. That takes a lot of guts.
RIP.

Rest in peace brother, you lived your life to the fullest and said and done what you liked. Takes real guts to put it all out there for the world to see.

I slightly disagree with this comment, I think he used the forums to boost his YouTube channel.. smart guy. he even had a whole thread about him.

I hung out with him 2 times 2 summers ago. Last time we messaged he said he was or was going to Mexico w his gf. I was fucking with him when he came to NYC and didn't hit me up. Still wrapping my head around this. Sad.
