Eric Ravenelle - 9 days ago

My deepest condolences to all of Howie’s family and friends. I work in Howie’s apartment building, for years (until very recently) he would be leaving as I would be getting in the morning and vice versa in the afternoon so he was first and last person I see every work day. We always talk about our families and of course joke and laugh, usually at someone else’s expense. I was lucky enough to go and see him for a few minutes on Tuesday, again joking and laughing the whole time. He was insistent that I have the pool ready for him ASAP. Howie was a great guy that never pulled his punches and told it like was, almost always with a smile. I will genuinely miss seeing him everyday.

Lou Appl - 9 days ago

Joe Hendel - 10 days ago

To the Richer family, You don't know me but I had the immense pleasure of meeting Howard at his apartment and then dealing with him in business. We became friends and were often in contact with each other. I would stop by his work or we would just call each other to say hello. I enjoyed Howard's company, conversations, business advise and all round kibbutzing. He was a unique individual who struck me as a man who lived his life as he wanted and with no regrets, and undoubtedly in one way or another touched everyone he knew. I admired him greatly and will take much of him and the things he said with me for the rest of my life. When someone can leave such an impression on another, you know that is a great thing from a great person. And I would have only received a small portion of what you have. I offer you my deepest condolences on your loss and wish you many blessings from his memories. Joe Hendel
