Howard loved to read Western novels, build small wood and metal projects, fishing, windmills and gardening. He loved the Holmes neighborhood he grew up in and loved to visit with anyone and talk about farming. He had a great love for children and loved spending time with his grandchildren, nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews. Howard remained on his family farm for 86 years before moving to Grand Forks in the fall of 2009.
