  4. My memories of Howard were always of a man of imposing presence but always gentle humility. Even as a young lad he treated me with respect afforded a man. He was never one to suffer fools but I guess he must have made an exception in my case. And although a man of few words, he always meant exactly what he said, delivering every comment with pithy dryness that often exceeded that of the parched soil of his outback origins.
