Howard and I worked together at Kodak in magnetic tape products. We were both from "the South". We both took questions about "the South". Howard tried hard to make the case Alabama could beat any Big 10 College. I never met a more enthusiastic person who worked tirelessly to maintain and improve the quality of magnetic tape products.
I will miss him.

Kim and Tammie, Cathy and I offer our most sincere condolences and I have so very many fond memories of Howard and Shirley. Sunrise Valley still is a unique neighborhood and when we moved there many years ago, Howard was among the very first to greet us. Many humorous stories abound . Friendship was paramount. We still miss the Valley. Prayers for the family
