    Michele, Jessica and TJ, we are so very shocked and saddened to her of Howard’s (your Dad’s) passing. We did not get to spend much time with him but immediately loved the big guy from the first time we met. I always called him the quiet giant. Please take comfort in knowing that he left a lasting impact on us here in Newfoundland and no doubt many a places and people he met. Sending our love and thoughts to you all.
