I didn't know Howie personally, but I had the pleasure of speaking with him on the radio, Ham Radio that is, many times. He was always a very, genuine, kind, pleasurable person to talk to. My condolences to the family and prayers as well. I will leave you all with a poem, a tribute to the Silent Key...

My chair is sitting empty.
My call's no longer heard
My radio rests quietly.
From it comes no words.
On my shack door is a message.
That reads "From Me to Thee"
My frequency's much higher now
I've become a Silent Key

73 Howie,
Perry Mayer

I was shocked to learn of the untimely demise of my very good and dear friend Howie. Our friendship goes back to the 1970's through ham radio. Out friendship also shared our enthusiasm for classic cars, motorcycling, classic music, his piano playing, hi-fi audio and good food. I will always remember the fun of cruising around in one of Howie's antique Rolls. Howie loved life, was a good husband and was a very good friend. I will dearly miss him.
Howie.....Mnukhh in shlum lib fraynd.

For many years, Howard has been my trusted advisor for all things about Bentleys and Rolls-Royces. I first met Howard and Andrea in 1976 when I joined the Atlantic Region RROC. After moving to Colorado, he and I kept in touch with frequent phone conversations. An accomplished pianist who loved his Steinway D, we shared many discussions about classical music and artists. He was a great friend and will be forever missed. My sincere condolences to Andrea and his family and friends.

Howard has been known to me by way of the RROC. His passion for the automotive side of his life, alerted me to his passion for life. A Man that I have met over the internet and telephone, a Man for whom I have the greatest respect, told it as He saw it.
My condolences to the Krimko Family ...... " May you be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem"

Met Howard a few years back at a car dealership and instantly created a bond over Cars. Great guy. Coincidentally, his wife was my teacher in Elementary School. Condolences to Mrs.Krimko and her family.
Rest In Peace Howard.

Howard was a true steel, iron, oil and driving maven. He was very particular about how cars of all varieties operated. He would often tell me he would drop an entire brand if the sales / shop people didn’t agree with him on repairs or how his car should operate. He also told me that cars should never be automatics and insisted that all the cars he owned need to be standards (meaning manual transmissions) and that was the only way to drive a car. A true driving enthusiast now and forever.
