"This is sad. I am so sorry to learn this. Howard was a good soul and a fine representative of our Master Beekeepers. He was a hard-worker for the cause of bees and (his fellow) beekeepers. He was an "ambassador" in the truest sense of the meaning of a Master Beekeeper and a good presence at YHC. Howard was a gentle soul and never troublesome, kinda like Myron Schaer." - Keith Delaplane
