    Howard was great man. I enjoyed working in the yard at St. John with Howard. A great friend and always there as I needed ride. I will miss his stories.

    “When I grow up, I want to be just like Howard.” How many of us at St. John’s Lutheran Church have said this multiple times in our lives? A Christian man who loved God and used that love to serve his family, his church, his community – taking care of the church grounds, weekly updating the church’s message sign, serving numerous years as a Meals on Wheels delivery driver, assisting in building our current church building on Major Drive, etc, etc. His example is one to want to copy. Rest well in the arms of Jesus, our friend, our Christian mentor and brother.

    My Uncle Howard was the best man that I’ve ever known. He was very giving and volunteered his time daily. He was a great man of faith. He was strong physically and mentally. May he RIP. ❤️🙏🏼
