    Howard was a a fine example to all of us. Generous, witty and always a gentleman. I always read any thread he started or posted on looking for the next nugget of knowledge or humor that he might contribute. I was never disapointed. I will miss his presence on this forum greatly.

    My condolences to his family and close friends for their loss.

    Godspeed Howard!-Paul

    So sorry to hear this. I always enjoyed reading Howard's posts on here and had hoped to meet him in person someday. I guess we will meet over the rainbow bridge. RIP Howard. Your RTF family will miss you dearly
    God bless!- Jamee

    So sorry to hear this. I like many have never met Howard, but as soon as I saw a post on rtf that he started or commented on I made sure I read it. He was a kind, loving, and spirited guy and will be missed. May God Bless Howard.

    Well, that is very sad to hear. I think my training group was the first one Howard joined in Ak. He learned quick and rose to the top as a trainer and handler. God bless you Howard..RIP.................Bill

    Thank you Howard. You inspired, consoled, competed and mentored with a dignity that was unrivaled. And all the while thought nothing of it.

    I've only known Howard a few years but long enough to admire, respect and appreciate him a great deal. And long enough to tell him to put a cork in it when he told me every mistake I made! He's obviously so well loved and respected here in Alaska and outside, he's made such an impression on so many people and the sport. I appreciate his honesty and giving of his knowledge and time to me as a youngster in the game. And I most respect his humility and love for the dogs like no one else.

    His dogs are all well, they miss their dad. I'm sad for their loss as well, they lost their person.

    It's windy as hell here today in Anchorage, I bet he's brewing up a storm for us.

    Howard was a very caring person. I am sure all the retriever community will find this news with a very heavy heart. I am sure there is a special place in heaven for him.

    He will be missed by many!!

    My condolences to Howards family and friends. The 11 pages in less than a day is a testimony of the lives Howard touched. What a good ,good man he was. He will be sorely missed by those who knew him and by the many here that did not. His life touched many. Rest in Peace Howard,,

    Didn't know Howard except via RTF & the accomplishments of his dogs. We had a number of conversations about dogs, training, etc and I respected his knowledge & input. Our community will miss him & I know I will too.
