Howard Kennedy was an excellent ATCS at the DCA AFSS. I worked with him after he transferred from the DAN FSS when it closed. His competence as a pilot weather briefer was matched only by his compassion and his appreciation of his fellow workers. He taught me a lot about tolerance and diversity. He always had a kind or good word about everyone and was a delight to sit next to and listen to his experiences. He didn't talk too much about his OSS service (secrets still) but he was very knowledgable about many subjects. His days in Chicago, his family, and aviation were all subjects he shared. It was a bit funny that it took the FAA over ten years to figure out he was supposed to be retired already, but he worked well into his 70's and was still a great coworker. Rest in Peace.

Howard was an impressive guy - easy going, funny, gentle, soft-spoken, and a hard worker who knew his stuff. Every word he spoke reflected his intelligence and balance. Of all the diverse personalities in our workplace at DCA AFSS, Howard was probably our best role model, not only in subject expertise, but in workplace sensibility. In this role he acted as a kind of lubricant, steadying the occasionally choppy waters. I always enjoyed his presence - his subtle wit and grace - and I truly miss him. Happy travels, good friend.

I worked with Howard during his entire time at Leesburg AFSS. I always enjoyed takling to Howard because of all the interesting things he had done. I especially enjoyed seeing all the figurines that he had carved and hearing about the old cars he was working on. Howard was an excellent co-worker: always friendly, helpful, knowledgable and dependable. While soft-spoken, he commanded respect and admiration. Frank Diehl

To the family of Howard, I am truly blessed to have known and worked with Howard at Leesburg AFSS. What a wonderful human being with such a plesant spirit. He and I would talk at the work positions for hous about his ventage Chevrolet and my Shelby GT350. I never heard Howard have a cross word with anyone as he went about his days quietly and humbly, interjecting a sprinkle of humor when needed. He would create his own little world with the gift of carving and share with others. I can remember the expression on his face when we marveled at his handwork. I missed Howard from the day he retired from the FAA and I know you will miss him as well. But Howard is carving figurines in heaven now, and saving them to present to his family and friends when we go home to meet him again. Its our responsiblility to prepare for the reunion. God Bless You, Minister Carl E. Pollard Jr.(PD)
