Howard and his wife started splitting their time between Green Valley and rural Western NY in 2009. He retired from Cummins, Inc. in 2012, and by 2017, they became full-time residents of Arizona. Howard accepted Jesus as his Savior and Lord in his 30’s and has served Him in a variety of roles such as deacon, teacher, small group leader, security team member, elder, and long-range planner. He is equally comfortable serving at the big picture and the fine detail levels to help the church effectively represent Jesus. Howard loves all things outdoors including hiking, hunting, fishing, archery, shooting, gardening, boating, and swimming. He also enjoys problem-solving, working with his hands plus spending time with his 4 children, 6 grandchildren, and dear friends.
His life verse is Proverbs 3:5-6.
