I had the privilege of working with Howard for several years on one of the JEDEC Task Groups he chaired. We developed a friendship over weekly lunch meetings and long editing sessions. His curiosity and passion for technology were inspiring. I'll miss my colleague, mentor and friend. My deepest sympathies to his family and loved ones.
