Ran around with Howard. He was a real character. We went to the same church- First Baptist Watsonville.
I remember Howard from gym class in high school. He was always laughing, and kidding. We didn't have any classes together, other than gym, but we had fun in that class. I never saw him after high school, and didn't know of his passing until I joined this site. Rest in peace my friend in you eternal sleep.
Howard and I lived just a shout from each other. We both enlisted in the Naval reserve in Nov. 1963 . Howard and I were friends except for a little disagreement we had. I remember Howard had transfered into the Marines from the navy. I also seen a story and picture of him while I was in vietnam in the Stars and stripes. He was brave doing his job in the marines ! I sorry to see that he passed away. Mel Phillips
