Here are a few comments from his family and friends…
“We said goodbye to my Dad yesterday. He loved his family fiercely. He had 3 daughters, 14 grandchildren and 23 great grandchildren. He loved Jesus. He loved being the first one to hold a new baby in the family. He always made waffles for my kids when he’d come to stay. Always had to make strawberry jam each year. Had to have a flower from the daphnia bush when it bloomed. Loved playing cribbage- which now lives on in even the great grandkids. Worked hard all his life – could weld anything. Served our country in the Air Force in the 1950’s. Had so many many stories. Loved to dance! I know there are a thousand more things about my Dad. He will be missed. Love you Dad.”
“My dad went to be with Jesus this evening. He taught me the most important lessons in life – love Jesus and love others. I’m going to miss him so very much. What a privilege to be his daughter. While our hearts are broken💔 he is dancing on streets of gold. With Pam Welstad & Janet Dodge.”
“Howard a friend, patriot and man that so many of us loved and aspired to be as good as. It has been such a joy to visit with him almost daily at Lane County Republican office. While he now has his wings, his presence will be truly missed.”
