Joe Howard has passed away

Postby Mike in Louisiana » Sun Feb 17, 2013 8:54 pm

Many of yo have met him at Deep South cub fest and Gary Boutwells La.cub fest. Our prayers go out to the family.
RIP Joe

HOWARD George Joseph (Joe) Howard, age 73, of Seminole, AL, passed away on February 15, 2013 from complications due to leukemia; a battle he fought for almost two years. Joe passed peacefully at home with his children by his side. Joe was born October 13, 1939, the fourth son of George and Lenore Howard. He grew up on a dairy farm in Alto, MI graduating from Caledonia High School in 1955. Joe received a degree in Paper Technology from Western Michigan University in 1959. He began his career with Scott Paper Co. in the Detroit Mill and transferred to Scott's Mobile, AL operations in 1966; retiring in 1994. Joe also served in the Michigan and Alabama Air National Guard. Joe was predeceased by his parents and sister-in-law, Nancy Howard. He is survived by his former wife, Bonnie Kampschulte Howard, their two children, Patrick (Eamar) Howard of Alto, Michigan and Susan (Bryan) Pape of Mobile, Alabama; four grandchildren, Nathan and Declan Howard and Sally and Worth Pape. Joe is also survived by his four brothers, James (Sallie) Howard, William (Joan) Howard, Thomas (Fran) Howard and Raymond Howard; all residing in Michigan. Joe is also survived by his loving companion, Linda Lofton of Daphne, AL. No one could ever say Joe didn't live life exactly the way he wanted. He spent his retirement years in Seminole, AL on the Styx River building his home entirely by himself. Although he never quite finished that house, Joe hosted more social gatherings than most other homes in the neighborhood. Joe was liked by everyone he met and was happiest "at the river" around a fire or tinkering with his antique Farmall tractors. Friends and neighbors were always stopping by to socialize and check on his progress with the house. If a man is measured by the number of friends he has, Joe was a wealthy man indeed. Joe wishes were to be cremated. The family will receive friends on Saturday, February 23rd at The Courtyard Manor, 751 Dauphin Street, Mobile Alabama from 2pm until 5pm. In lieu of flowers, please make memorial contributions to the American Cancer Society or the Hospice organization/ charity of your choice.

So sorry to hear about Joe. He and I spent quite awhile talking about his power units at DSCF a couple years back. Thanks for letting us know Mike.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Was he the one that had 2-3 power units on a trailer at DSCF a year or 2 back?

I decided to do a little digging through old pictures and found one I really like from DSCF.
