    Truly one of my favorite people in this world!! Howard treats me like family & I love him like a dad! You won’t find a wiser or kinder man! He can fix anything, spit out any fact you want to know, and has the patience of Job. Thankful to have known him for many years & the continued influence he will have on me. Happy birthday Howard!! We love YOU!!

    Look at that stud! That’s my dad looking like a total rockstar at 75 years young. Words can’t express what an amazing person my dad is or how much I love him. He is selfless, generous, kind, down to earth, and truly adored by everyone who knows him. We started CrossFit together almost 15 years ago, and I’ve loved being able to share in the experience together, both as athletes and as business owners. Can’t wait to celebrate your big day with you dad, CFHSV style! Happy Birthday 🎂

    A “ Legend”. Howard is a ordinary man with extraordinary talents- and always with a smile.
    A cheerful Granddaddy, a loving Father, and Patty’s very caring husband. He sets an unmatched, high bar. Lots of very warm kinetic energy in his soul. I’m not sure if H is 7-5. I probably need to check his ID for confirmation. Happy Birthday Howard, you’re an inspiration for us all. // jt

    Ain’t nobody like em’. I’ve been welcomed into Howard’s home and family since the day we met. I’ve known H for 30 years and he’s as steady as they come. No way I could put into words what his acceptance of me from day one has meant and how he’s treated me every day since.

    Howard is the reason we all have a place to CrossFit. He planted the seed back in 2008 and has made sure that it’s been nurtured in such a way that we could all be proud to call it our CrossFit Home. Thanks for taking a risk H cause it’s been a blessing and a blast ever since. Happy Birthday Howard, hope you have some fun today and I love you.

    My man! Howard owns humility, integrity, kindness, and every other quality we would all be proud to claim. He puts his ego aside in all he does. One of the smartest people I know, but never a “know it all”! The best Poppy, Father and husband a family could have. H you are loved, respected and admired by everyone you touch. Happy Birthday my Angel. I look forward to 75 more ❌⭕️❌⭕️💜🎂

    Happy Birthday, Howard! One of the most respected men I know! Thanks for being there for me when the other doctor told me I needed surgery ASAP… and you told me there was no need for it because I’m functioning just fine! Now that you are retired.. I don’t know what I’m going to do with my life…! Continue to be the “Legend of CFHSV” and I’m looking for to seeing you throw down for 75 more years!

    Howard!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! 🎉🎁🎊🎂🎈 This man is one of a kind. I was fortunate enough to meet him and his entire family back in 2011 and was welcomed with open arms. This man puts his family first and there is nothing that he wouldn’t do for them. He treats his wife like the angel that she is and everyone can tell his daughters are the apples of his eye! Thank goodness he took a leap of faith with CrossFit because we all now have a place to call home. So very blessed to know this man and be a part of his family!
