Howard was a former fuel delivery man for Frushour Oil Company in Lucerne and later for Tom’s LP. He also farmed with his dad and did vehicle repairs and body work in his garage in Marshtown. He was known for doing an occasional hog roast. Howard enjoyed his golf, fishing, a trip to see the goats, gardening, an occasional euchre game and spending his winters in Florida. He left this world the way he lived his life, a Mr. busy body and a man that always had to be doing something.
