He very much enjoyed his lifelong hobby of collecting frog art and figurines. He really loved good food. Howard traveled the world in his younger years. Later in life he discovered the joys of cruising. He especially enjoyed cruising to Alaska with his wife and family. Howard remained involved with his real estate holdings. In lieu of flowers, your consideration of a donation to one of Howard's favorite charities, the Wounded Warrior Project or the Salvation Army, would be appreciated.
