    I was told earlier today and I'm still stunned. Howard if you're looking down on us, I pray there are field trials in heaven and you're running this weekend. We are going to miss you! You had a heart of gold.

    I too am speechless!!!

    We spent many nights on the old RTF chat room, talking via phone & emails. Howard always had time to answer any questions or just to shoot the breeze. He loved to hear about his Bam(by Shaq) grandpup, "Ziggy", was doing and was usually one of the first to call/post & sends attaboy's when we had a good weekend! He was truly one of the good guys, that will be missed by many.

    RIP Howard

    We lost a real mentor to the sport, Howard's advice will stay with me for the remainder of my dog years. RIP Howard

    This is very surreal. Mary, I'm sorry. You've lost a dear, dear friend. I only met Howard a few times, but once was a week training in TX and it was very clear that this was his love and passion. He most certainly paid it forward with advice on RTF. What a shock and a shame, as his intentions were always good.

    Rest in Peace Howard. I hope you are meeting dear friends and dogs.

    Very sad news. Howard was always a gentleman and willing to help. Prayers to all his family and friends. He will be missed.

    Just saw this over on FB and I'm still shocked. Howard was one of the posters here that I always clicked on a thread when I saw he had posted because you knew he was going to pass on some wisdom. I had the chance to chat with him via FB a few times about breedings or he'd ask if I knew how one of his pups was doing. Such a good guy and a damn good trainer. You will be missed Howard.

    Man I hate to hear this. I only spoke with him a few times over the phone but it wasn't hard to see that he was one of the good guys. RIP Mr. Howard.

    I Had only known Howard for a few years, he was one heck of a guy. Definitely a wealth of knowledge when it came to training retrievers. He had a true love for the game and it showed everytime you would watch him run his dogs. He will leave a void here in Alaska and through out the retriever community. RIP Howard
