You were always larger than life. Thank you for all of the generosity in passing on so much of your knowledge and time to me as a young art student and through the years. You made such an impact in my life. I am so grateful to have known you and am thinking and praying for Andree and the whole family. I will miss you so much. I think of you daily and can't believe you are gone.

So many of us are grateful to have been fortunate to dip a toe into that vast ocean of knowledge that was Rob Howard. I learned just as much about art making methods as I did of how to fight until the end. Godspeed, Rob, and deepest condolences to Andree and family.

Rob ... thank you for sharing your wealth of knowledge to all of us who desire to create beautiful visual images that we humbly desire to call "art". You will be greatly missed ... may you rest in the arms of the LORD healed and restored ... and now you know all things having complete understanding. Prayers of comfort are going to Andrea whom I know you adored.
I'll never forget you my friend.

It is almost impossible to believe you are gone from our world, such was your fierce light, truthful courage and intellect. Thank you for the great gifts of knowledge and truth that you shared with us so generously. This is an immeasurable loss I know to your family and friends and those of us who got to know you through your dedication to teaching and returning knowledge that had been lost for decades, to the artists who were yearning for it. I gained immensely from knowing you and your work.
