David Terhune and I saw the Facebook post about Howard's passing about the same time. Neither of us had seen him since our Babe Ruth baseball years, but we shared several memories txtg last night of him and his dad, Jim, that made us smile. We should all be so lucky to leave behind memories of such fleeting meetings that decades later still give people reason to smile:). -Stuart Arnold

I haven't seen Howard since 1979 or 1980 when we were in the Navy. He was stationed on the aircraft carrier USS Independence and he took me on board with him. Like most of the people who will write a condolences letter I have known Howard for many years. I went to Boyle County and he went to Danville. I can say he was my friend and I would have loved to have seen him again. He was a pleasure to be around. Howard, I hope you went peacefully. John Keith

I consider it a blessing to have grown up with Howard. He and his family were always kind and accepting of everyone. I am thankful we were able to get together when he was here in September and I am a better person for having known him. May God bring comfort to all that miss him.
