Howard will be extremely missed. He was known for his warm inviting spirit, crazy sense of humor, infectious laugh, genuine love of life, love for God and Family. He was always determined to provide for his family and give them the life he felt they deserved. Howard’s family meant more to him than anything else in the world. He was unendingly proud of Brent, Justin, and Marisa. He absolutely loved attending services at The Church on the Living Edge, a loyal member of the church, he was a devoted Christian that knew the importance of serving God.
