Howard's concept of life was to enjoy the present and live it to the fullest. Always creating a rumpus of projects, challenges, and driven to be productive. It was a whirlwind carpet ride to have been married to him. Being with Howard was being with the unexpected. Like being a passenger on a broken golf cart with reverse gear only down a windy hillside. Going the wrong way on a one way road backwards while at Catalina Island. This was more fun than his favorite Mr. Toad's ride at Disneyland. We climbed the huge steps of Chichen-itza with Howard wearing a knee brace. Reaching the top he was "Man of the World". Then there were the 27 years of exploring abandoned mines of the High Sierras. Howard offered his knowledge, talents and trades by opening his hands to help family, friends and strangers generously and without hesitation. If it was broken he fixed it. If he couldn't fix it he took it apart. As he is missed he is re-joined with family and friends who passed before him. As my son sends me shooting stars Howard will burn his star clearly and steadfast for all tonights so I can find him once again. Carpe diem in HEAVEN. Your, Sue Girl, 39 years January 13th.

I was fortunate as a child to be able to spend all my summers in Russian River at Vacation Beach where the Ross' were my neighbors. It was a wonderful time to be growing up! So carefree, not a care in the world except having fun. We were satisfied with the simpleist things, like standing under the street light, all talking & laughing at night. Swimming all day & just having fun. Howard was such a big part of that. He was so funny & would do the craziest things. I'm so glad we got to see Howard at our reunion at the River in October 2017. He will be greatly missed. With my deepest sympathies, Sharon Clausen Carroll

My prayers to Melissa, Howie and Marcie and all the grandkids. I have the fondest memories of this great man, after all who could ever parachute behind a convertible like he could. Right now I know you are in Heaven having a drink and a great conversation with my mom, Josie and all the others. Thank you Howard for being a part of my life and heart.
