My first job out of law school was with Pratt, Clark, Gathright & Brett and I worked closely with and for Howard on many matters during the six years I worked at the firm. He was always very supportive and provided many insights on the practice of law. We were also friends socially and we played a lot of tennis together. He was always fun to be with and boy did he love the Flyers. I remember going to the games at the Spectrum and watching them on television at Howard's house. Howard had a zest for life that could be contagious. My sincerest condolences to his family. Rick Atherholt

Please accept my condolences on the loss of your Dad. I started my legal secretarial/paralegal career working for your Dad over 40 years ago and I am still with the firm today. Your Dad was a great man who gave a lot to his community over the years and an attorney and employer I highly respected. Although he came to the office in recent years, I always remember him as the vibrant attorney who helped start my carrer.
