  1. It was a pleasure to meet him and work with him for 5 years. He taught me a lot and made me a better person in life. My friend. I’m going to miss having someone to talk to when I’m down and to give me a lift and a smile. Rest in peace my friend. You will forever be in my thoughts and prayers.

    Randy, Elaine and family,
    We had great pleasure having met Howard doing one of the things he loved, camping.
    Your hearts has been broken in the most painful way. We’re so sorry. May you be comforted in the light of love.
