So very sorry to hear of Howard's passing , I was fortunate enough to work with him for the past 7 months , we had a lot of fun working together and joking around. It was my pleasure getting to know him and becoming friends albeit just for a short time.

He will be missed by us all.

My condolences to all of the family

Dave Lord
