  1. Ann & I are so sorry for your loss of Howard. He was a very community minded man who was dedicated to any venture or task undertaken. A street smart man who really could see the issues before him, and make intelligent and strong decisions for the betterment of all. Personally, I thank him for giving me an opportunity to serve the Phoenix schools and community. Our thoughts go out to his family and many friends. He was just a great guy to know….
