I am so sorry. Howard has been a large part of Wayneswords for many years with his spoons and north end reports. I send my love to his family and those that are missing him so much. Now I will put one of Howard's spoons next to one new wally lure that I still have in the box and have never used except for the memories...
I also am sorry to hear of the passing of Howard. Goldie & I fished the canyons North of Bullfrog and kept running into him and his crew. I started vertical jigging that day. Prayers to his family from someone that only met him 3 times on the lake. I also have his jigs in my box. Goldie & Squirrel
Howard was always the first to want to lend a hand in teaching someone how to catch striper. He had become such a great friend of my family. He loved having my grandson on his boat and was so patient with his 4 fishing poles he always wanted out. We will miss him tremendously on the Hooligan Too
I am so sorry to hear this. It was great to hang out with you guys on the hooligan for a few hours last year and talk flies and jigs. My thoughts and prayers go out to Howard, his family and his friends.
A great man and a true friend of Lake Powell. Howard made spoons for us out of lead but his heart was solid gold. He gave so much to so many, a true original who will be missed by all.
Howard was always there to help when needed, coming to my aid more than once when I / we found ourselves stranded on the lake. To this great man Rest In Peace my friend.

Kind, patient, generous to a fault, a master craftsman, skilled mechanic, striper slayer, a fountain of Lake Powell knowledge and an expert with a fillet knife. A man who loved fishing and Lake Powell and shared his knowledge about both with anyone who cared to listen. I am proud to say I was one of those.
Howard, I will miss hailing the Hooligan ll every time we tie up to the Exec. Services dock, hoping to get a response that you and Ralph are on board. I’ll also sorely miss the camaraderie and story telling on the back deck.
You left us too soon and too suddenly Howard. I am comforted in the fact that you were able to complete one last trip to the Lake, before you were taken from us to a better place.
Oh this is sad news. Howard was good man. He had made up some special spoons just for me and brought them to my house. They are still in my tackle box I will never forget. I will miss you Howard . Rest in peace
Howard's wife just called me, and gave me the sad new's. I thought the world of Howard, he's a great man, and would do anything for any body. Your going to be greatly missed Howard, and the lake will never be the same.
Love you Man.
