I first met Howard on an activity through the adventure group to count butterflies . One did not need to be in his presence for very long before realizing his immense knowledge of TN flora and his devout respect for nature. He often spoke of his many mentors that he loved. Howard loved hiking and Howard graciously shared his knowledge and love of everything in nature. He loved working in his yard and encouraged people continually to go outside -“It is a beautiful day”! Howard attributed the beginning of his love for nature from his father and family and spoke of his early childhood experiences in the outdoors. Fly High my friend. Heaven has gained a new hike leader. You will be missed ❤️ Ann
