Howard earned his GED and obtained his CDL. He drove truck, crossing the country coast to coast, for over 40 years. Howard’s drive was fueled by his desire to see all 50 states and he especially enjoyed visiting Montana and Wyoming.

Surviving are two sons, Tracey H. McCollough, of New Media and Chad M. Norquest, of Minnesota; and four siblings, Shirley Campbell and her husband, Richard, of Muncy, Patsy Hewlett, of Berwick, Edward Willis, of Nescopeck and Julie Miller, of Berwick.
