I was extremely saddened to see this post today and hear of Howard's passing.
I never met Howard however we corresponded and exchanged information on our breeding plans. We compared pups and discussed sires at great length. He helped me make some very important breeding decisions and I thank him so much for taking the time to help a newbie. I just went back to my pm's and I still have Howard's PM's to me full of advice, good information and support.
He was kind, and a real guiding light. We have lost a true friend.
To Howards's friends and family, my sincerest sympathies.

Wow, I just saw this and I am in Shock...Howard was a true RTF veteren. He was a polite and forthright person who loved his dogs and the sport unquestionably. He will be missed by many...
With Great Sympathy,
Very sad. I never met Howard in real life but felt like I knew him from RTF and the old retriever training listserv
I am at a loss of words to express how deeply sorry I am to hear about Howard's passing.

I just learned of Howards passing today. It is so sad to lose a man like Howard. He had just retired a couple years ago and was really looking forward to spending his retirement running dogs. Howard was always free to offer advice or answer training questions, he was a good guy and was very generous with his time and knowledge. RIP Howard. Bud

I too enjoyed reading Howard's posts. My condolences to his family and friends for their great loss.
Realize this: Howard's 'family' was his dogs, his training partners and the contacts he made at trials, on RTF and related sites. This means that those with whom he exchanged ideas on the internet were part of his extended family. Most of us who have trained with him for years have no idea who his real blood relatives were. It is really ALL of us who will miss him. He leaves a big empty place with the retrieving folks in AK and elsewhere.
