Whereas, a leader in his community, Howard was a member of the Walterboro Shrine Club Arabian Temple #139 and served as worthy patron for the Pride of Walterboro #189 O.E.S. He was also a member of and past master for the Sunlight Lodge #221 and a member of the Building Committee for the Lodge; and

Whereas, a man of faith, Howard accepted Christ at an early age, and he loved reading and studying the Bible and hearing the word of the Lord. He was a devoted member of St. John Baptist Church in Walterboro, where he touched the lives of many as deacon and Sunday school superintendent; and

Whereas, in 1972, Howard married Gladys Manigo. Together, they had five children: Christie, Howard "Boobie" II, Amanda, Brent, and Brittany; and
