Hi I'm Howard

I'm a Mormon. I am a father of seven talented children and for 47 years the husband of the most awesome woman in the world.

About Me

I am interested in art, music, history, and politics. I am a veteran. I have sold real estate for 39 years. I have established subdivisions, and sold land, residences, and commercial property. I am interested in community service and have worked with many local and civic organizations including Lions, Highlands Community Association, etc. I support my children in their interests. They are involved in drama, art, scouting and youth organizations. I have an autistic grandson and am involved with organizations that help resolve the challenges caused by autism. I am interested in helping the less fortunate and have supported the Salvation Army, Catholic Community Services, and various 501(c)3 organizations that help the homeless. I enjoy helping people especially seniors in the challenges that have to do with aging. I have many friends that have blessed my life and helped me in helping others. I believe that most people are good and want to make this world a better place!

Why I am a Mormon

I believe that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints is an organization that is dedicated to helping people to improve their lives. It does so much good for everyone. When ever there is a disaster the Church is there giving people a chance to help each other. The Church not only helps in emergencies but it helps long term in everyday life. It helps people to feel their importance, and their dignity. The Church teaches that we are all brothers and sisters and has programs to help us to elevate ourselves and everyone else. The Church teaches that we all are children of God. I know those teachings are true.

How I live my faith

I am involved in helping people in our congregation to cope with the troubles of life. I help families with their challenges. I visit the sick. I help my wife to provide home cooked meals for those who need to feel loved and supported. I help people who are facing death to understand that they are going to be with the Lord and that they will still love those left behind and we will still love them. I help with funeral arrangements etc. I am very interested in young people. I have 23 grandchildren. I just love doing things with them. I enjoy their talents and their ideas. They are so very bright and positive! I am deeply interested in families. I enjoy doing what I can to help people develope their talents. With my friends in various organizations I have helped to organize art contests, music and drama presentations, and civic service events. I serve on our town's interfaith council where we correlate assistance to those in need and helping everyone to develope positive avenues for expressing good values. I enjoy working with others who want to improve life in our community.
