Howard, or as he was called Ducky or Pops, was proud of his family and his own accomplishments. He was proud of getting his GED during one of his many prison stints and could escape almost any place or situation he got himself in. He was called Puddin’ in his younger days, as he was smooth as pudding and just as sweet, according to his many loves. He loved a meal of cornbread, Chow Chow, and beans with milk. He would steal from the rich and considered himself Robin Hood for he would turn around and

give to the poor along with his best friend, Ronnie Holder. He did find forgiveness and turned his life around, and became a deacon in his local church, the

Chatsworth, Ga Church of God of the Union Assembly. He loved God above all else and would tell you that’s all that mattered.

Pops is now retired and is spending his eternity resting with his Savior. The family will have a private service at a later time.
