To Sue Ellen and family...I had ¹the pleasure of working with Howard for 27 years at the Hyatt Regency in KC. He was the best boss I had my whole time of working there of almost 40 years.He was a great example of a hard worker and impressed me as leading by example. He was not afraid to jump in on many occasions and do dirty/hard work when he didn't need to as a boss. We would share many funny stories before work started in the morning that made coming to work something actually to look forward to and fun. We would have many fond memories of our shared times at work and even at the Chiefs games. I was always impressed also at how he could lay out a project, drafting style, on paper and how organized he could keep mechanical records and renovation records and specs. You could look up specific info on the whole building with dates and notes that were informative and appreciated by me. We pray God gives you extra strength at this time.

My dear She Ellen, Emma & Ellen and extended family, I mostly remember how gracious of a host Howard was at your MRAM Christmas party. You two introduced me to the wonderful world of the Swedish Grog drink. He was so gentlemanly with the gang as he graciously took over a large part of the kitchen horrendous clean up. I'm so sorry to hear of this great lost that your family is suffering from. We all were so fortunate to have had such a fine man in our lives. No one will ever fill his shoes. Sincerely, Gail
