Dear Charlene, Tim & I attend Thursday church service and see You and Howard. A measure of a good man is the way he treats his wife. You could just tell by Howard's actions that he cherished you and what great character he had. When we read his obituary that was confirmed. We are so sorry for you loss.

Dear Char, Ryan, Holly, Syd, and boys, Condolences to you all. What a loss. Howard is an unusually good man. Not only highly accomplished but loving, a gentleman, a scholar, and a courageous warrior as a young man. What a rich, strong, and amazing life. Please know our deep affection for you all. Rick & Kathy
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Howard was a good engineer but an even better person, a combination that doesn't always go together. I didn't know Howard outside of work, but it was always a pleasure (and informative) to talk to him.

My deepest sympathies to Charlene and the entire family. I worked with Howard, both at the Lakeview mill and K-C's staff. Howard never talked about his Vietnam service or his heroism. Howard was very modest about his accomplishments, and he was a pleasure to work with. I'm sure he'll be missed by many.

My sincere condolence to Charlene and entire family. I worked with Howard at the Lakeview mill. He was always helpful, honest and humble. I never knew of his heroism in Vietman. Howard truly was a man of great integrity and a great friend. Mark V.
