Howard passed away peacefully at home with dignity and grace, on August 16, 2008, with his lovely wife Jay (Hawes) and his daughter Sage at his side, in Los Osos, California, after a long bout with cancer. Howard was always a very gracious guy. He touched the lives very deeply of those around him over the years.

Jack Woodhead in 1966. John Andrew "Jack" Woodhead, Jan 22 1948 - Jun 1, 1998.
Jack became a teacher, and later an administrator for an Oregon School district.
Doug Perez writes: Jack was one of those rare individuals who had many exceptional abilities and substantial accomplishments in life - and yet didn't seem to notice them. He was embarrassed by praise, but in turn heaped it upon others. Smiling, exuberant, selfless, and giving, Jack was a friend to all. He always seemed to be able to see life's possibilities and not its limitations. And I'm sure that, like Will Rogers, he "never met a man he didn't like."
