He loved scuba diving, beaches & taking family to Disney! Howard was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2004, given six months to a year to live, but praise to his Lord & Savior, he was granted many more years. In those years, he endeared himself to many due to his always positive and upbeat attitude; always being thankful for each day the Lord had given him. He was a loving, kind and considerate man; one of whom his parents were very proud. He made their lives so much more pleasant in their later years.
