He worked in the construction industry and retired in 2007 from Tomahawk Log Homes. He was united in marriage to Nancy Boykins on July 11, 1964 in Tomahawk. 

Howard loved spending time at the log cabin he built. He loved being outdoors and was happiest when he had dirt under his nails or hip boots on his feet. He was an avid vegetable gardener and grew a huge beautiful vegetable garden. One would have a difficult time finding any weeds in his garden. Howard was a Brewer and Packer fan and enjoyed all sports. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, trapping and playing golf. Howard’s faith was also very important to him. Howard especially loved spending time with his family.

He may have been a man of few words but he always had a great sense of humor. He is going to be deeply missed by many.

He is survived by his wife Nancy of 59 years, their three children, Brad Hoff, Rebecca (Charles) Jaecks, and Brendt Hoff, all of Tomahawk; four grandchildren; two great-granddaughters and one great-great-granddaughter; sisters, Sharon (Robert) Eisenman, Tomahawk, Cindy (Bob) Westcott, Tomahawk, Debbie (Glen) Powers, Tomahawk; and brother-in-law, Charlie (Teri) Wilson, Illinois.

Howard was preceded in death by his parents, his sister, Kathy Wilson, daughter-in-law Lori and his grandson.
