Patty Rinquist (Mrs Dale) and Linda Kunz of Spokane came home Sunday following the news. Harold and Judy Janett drove from Royal Slope Sunday evening. Howard was active in Grange, having held the position of master for several years. Most recently he was the treasurer, and had been for many years. I remember Howard best for his ready smile and cheerful manner. Howard loved farming and although he was a hardworking individual, he never expected more from others than he, himself, was able to deliver. The sight of him in coveralls, engineer’s cap and re kerchief around his neck will be sorely missed. His philosophy was always one of optimism. If farming didn’t look so good now, there was always hope for the future. Those who saw the two segments he was in for TV news last fall commented on his optimistic view. Services were yet to be announced at this writing.” (scrapbook news);
