Howard writes that his life philosophy has been “Fun first, career second.” Over the last 50 years, he has enjoyed being an electrical contractor, traveling throughout the U.S., for 45 years; being a sporting goods “retailee” for 35 years; running an antique business for 15 years; being a ski instructor for 16 years; being a fisherman and outdoorsman for 70 years; and an amateur chef and cook forever. He married Bobbie Jean Bradford ’59, who passed away in 1990 after 30 years of marriage. He has two sons, ages 44 and 45. Howard reflects that he learned “how to communicate” at Macalester.

I loved all my 32 years teaching Kindergarten for Hibbing Public Schools. We have one granddaughter, Molly Rose Giles, born in Siberia in 1998. She is 9 and is the light of our lives. She lives in a suburb of Dallas, Texas. Keith and I traveled during our early years to places our daughter, Lisa Merie ’84, could go and/or would go to visit. Now our traveling is to Texas for grandparents’ day (birthday) special performances for Molly. My retirement years are also spent volunteering at my church, our hospital, our library, tutoring, and Habitat for humanity.

In May 2002, the Lion's Club of Hibbing honored me as volunteer of the year. In October 2005, KBJR TV-Duluth honored me with a leadership award as part of their ten outstanding women in leadership. St. Louis County Commissioner honored me as volunteer of the month in February 2006. What a humbling experience! You do what everyone should do! Life is great!
