I am honored to have known Mr. Mabel. It was very plain to see how much students meant to him and how, if given a second chance, things could improve for them. He never gave up. And, most importantly, it didn't matter who you were -- he saw each individual as a person. I'll miss working and talking with Mr. Mabel. Blessings to his family.

Mr. Mabel was such a positive influence on everyone he touched and was always able to see the good side in everyone he met. My prayers are with Howard and his family.

May God Bless Mr. Mabel.

sincerely,

Bob and Deb Syroka

I met Howard when I was assigned to sub at Parkland. What a trip! Howard and I became fast friends, especially after we discovered we were both from the same area of NJ (Bergen County/ Passiac County). Howard was an impressive administrator then, and those skillks only got stronger as the years went by. Little did I know that first day at Parkland that Howard and I would become such good friends, and work together in various projects for the next thirty years. While doing my administrative field experience at Devilbiss, I ended up spending much time with Howard and learned a great deal - he loved the students, and they in turn responded so well to him. Later - much later - we worked together on Private Industry Council (PIC) summer programs, and his sincere desire to help students, and make those programs great ones was always obvious. While I haven't seen him in years, I will miss him, and his all encompassing smile. It was always fun to run into him knowing the discussion would turn to the lake, perhaps a Vegas story, or places for dinner in Paterson, NJ - a part of our youth, long past. Howard was a wonderful person and I'm so glad we became friends. Please accept my deepest sympathy on your loss.

How odd that my father, Lawrence Fischer, and Mr. Mabel would be laid to rest in the same week. Dad was much older than Mr. Mabel, but they worked together many years ago at Parkland School. I remember how highly my father spoke of Mr. Mabel around our house, and can still see Dad throwing his head back and laughing loudly whenever they conversed via telephone in the post-Parkland years. My most sincere sympathy to all of Mr. Mabel's family.

Mrs. Mabel, my heart goes out to you and your family at this difficult time. I am extremely saddened to hear about the passing of Mr. Mabel. He was a great man!! As I read through the comments from Start High graduates on this web site, I am not surprised to see the vast number of young lives he touched. Mr. Mabel helped a lot of us to become better people and live up to a better vision of ourselves. He always had an upbeat but realistic view on everything. He shared his time and talents with a true love, respect and humor. Thank you Mr. Mabel, for all that you have done in touching so many of us. Rick Keesee SHS '82

I am sorry you are sad. The world has lost one of its finest persons. Howard shares our lake, He is our neighbor. I am so impressed, not surprised, by the beautiful words being used to describe his influence on his students. He made a major difference in the lives of the persons he touched. We are honored to have known him and his fabulous family. As we round the curve, toward our lake house, our hearts will pause in saddness until we meet again. May God hold you in the palm of his hand, that is if He can hold you still that long, and bring your family memories of a joy-filled life well lived. Our love, our prayers and thougght, Margaret and Bill Noe and family. .

I can still picture Mr. Mabel walking across the lunchroom at Start and hear his booming voice! He was always so nice and fair! Rest in Peace, and Peace be with his family.
