He lived a very full life in service to his country, community, friends and family. Howard was born on March 11, 1922 in Morris, Illinois and was raised on a farm as the second oldest of five children. He was educated in a one-room schoolhouse where grades 1-8 comprised a total of about 20 pupils. He went on to get a degree in Metallurgical Engineering at the University of Missouri School of Mines at Rolla. Partway through college however, he enlisted in the Navy in 1943 and became a Naval Aviator, co-piloting PB-M and PB-Y seaplanes off the coast of Florida. His squadron flew the initial search and rescue missions in the still unsolved disappearance of 5 fighter planes in the Bermuda Triangle in 1945. Following the war, Howard finished college and went on to work in steel manufacturing in the Chicago area, rising quickly to leadership roles, and eventually managing 2 foundries. In 1951, he met Irene, and they were married the following year. They had 3 children and the family moved to California in 1969, settling in Walnut Creek. Over their 59 years of marriage before Irene's passing in 2011, they enjoyed golf, friends, and travel to the fullest. As members of Contra Costa and Rossmoor Golf Clubs, along with countless days at Lake Berryessa over the years, they made lifelong friends. Howard was very involved in leadership positions with the men's clubs at these golf courses. Extremely proud of his Norwegian roots, Howard had a strong work ethic, was very organized and knew when to work and when to have fun. He was a devoted husband and father and provided well for his family. His three grandchildren loved him dearly because of the special attention he would give them. Howard is survived by children Linda (Dan) of Danville, Phil (Tanya) of Bakersfield and Jim (Karin) of Raleigh, North Carolina, along with three grandchildren, Aaron, Jennifer and Kyle. Florence Carstensen became a special friend to Howard over the last three years.
