Howard made life long friends through his school, Sigma Alpha Mu fraternity, community and work. His ability to hear people and understand their perspective combined with his integrity made him a success personally and professionally. Howard had an inquisitive nature and loved to understand the why of things.
Howard was a generous friend who supported his family and friends throughout his life. An ear, a hug, "I understand" and being there through thick and thin, we could depend on him.
The 2 most memorable days in his life were the days his daughter Jennie and grandson Ryan were born. His pride In Jennie knew no bounds. The last 2 ½ years he reveled in watching Ryan grow. His face lite up and all was good when he heard "Hi Poppy".
In the last 6 years, he found his life partner, Cynthia. Together they shared his passion for college football, most particularly The Ohio State Buckeyes, New Orleans, wines and sharing everyday with a true soul mate. The last 2 years being grandparents were at the top of the list.
