You were all lucky to have Howie for so many years… He was a classmate, friend and fellow football player at AUSTINTOWN FITCH HS in Youngstown, OH. He always made practices go a little easier. I’m sad for your loss. God bless you and your family, Howie.

Pam and Family, so many wonderful memories through the years with your entire Family. I’m sorry we couldn’t be at the Memorial to share a few and to emphasize what a good time we had when Howie would be around, elevating the fun to new heights. I wish we could help to alleviate your pain and sadness in losing him. Howie was the real deal, one of the good ones, a dandy guy for sure I’m glad and thankful to have known him. Now that Howie is at rest, we’ll concentrate are thoughts and prayers more toward hoping for peace and solace for you and the Family. Love, and God Bless you.
