Howard was born on July 14, 1932 in Rochester to Bryce and Velma (Kirkwood). He attended school in Eyota, MN. Howard married Lavonne Fenske on September 11, 1951. The couple made their homes between California and Minnesota, finally settling in the Dover-Eyota area. In 1973, they moved to Rochester. Howard worked various jobs as an Auto Mechanic, (POP), Pacific Ocen Park and Boeing in California and Eyota Lumber Yard and as a truck/semi driver in Minnesota.

He is preceded in death by his parents; Bryce and Velma; his wife, Lavonne; one son, Howard, Jr.; his brother, Keith; one grandson, Heath; and one granddaughter, Ashlie Rose.

Howard loved his coffee time at Hy-Vee and playing 500.
