  1. We became friends at the ‘Hatchcover’ in N. Manhattan Beach and he and his lovely wife were friends and customers of mine at ‘Pancho & Wongs’, ‘Lou e luey’s’ and neighbors in Sleepy Hollow. I will miss very much HOWARD!

  2. Nancy, we will miss Howard terribly. He and Ozzie Cadena can now enjoy the best JAZZ with all those in heaven! Please let us know the date, time and place for his celebration of life. We would love to honor him. Please call if you need anything at all. Vicki Callahan & Byron Porter

  3. We’re sorry that we will be unable to attend the celebration of Howard’s life. We have so many memories of fun times with the Weavers, but I suppose the best were the Sundays of tennis and brunch. Some of us were out there on the courts pretending to enjoy playing, yet we know it was all the build-up to the main attraction – Pancho and Wong’s for champagne and the Wong omelette. HOURS! We spent HOURS there. Or sometimes we’d go to the Weavers for Howard’s famous crepes, or whatever he called them. And for a special treat, maybe some HEAD CHEESE! We won’t get into discussions of the hot tub. Of course, that was BP, before Paula, and Bob wasn’t truly happy then anyway. Good friends, good times we’ll remember fondly!

  4. We are so sorry to hear of Howard’s passing. We have many memories of both of you. The hot tub at your house (me falling off, stark naked); on the bus going up to the slopes and Howard pops an Oly. We loved our get togethers and have missed you since we left Ca. Be well Nancy and come visit.
