Becky, so sorry to hear of Bob's passing I always admired him and enjoyed our association at MDHA and viewing parades downtown during recent years. He will be greatly missed by me and his many friends and loving family. I wanted to attend but during these times though it was better not to be around others.

Teresa and I will always remember our Sunday visits with Bob and Becky at the Hermitage House Smorgasbord. We always had wonderful discussions. Bob and I talked many times about our military experiences. Teresa and I are looking forward to seeing Becky again soon.

You always knew that any assignment undertaken by Bob Howard would be performed thoroughly and professionally. I extend my sincere condolences to Bob’s family. While you grieve his loss, you can be comforted by the memory of a man who lived a long and productive life. Godspeed my friend.
