    I worked with Howard on a fairly brief but intense basis. A remarkable experience in my life: It took him zero time to expand our relationship from purely professional to great friend and mentor, and in doing so he completely redefined my definition of what constitutes a “great person”.
    Every layer of Howard you peeled back, the more exemplary a person he became. He was a veritable onion of greatness: great leader, great colleague, great mentor, great partner, great friend, great family man — just great through and through on every level (not to mention great eye watering over his passing).
    At the end of the day, I’m just a guy who got to work with him for a bit, so I can’t even imagine the pain and loss of his family and friends, but I knew him well enough to know this much is true for anyone who ever entered his orbit:
    the loss of Howard is terribly great, but the gift of Howard is infinitely greater.

    My sincere condolences to the Veltman family. Howard is a close friend and business partner of mine for over 22 years. I valued our relationship and I will miss him deeply. I know you lost a great husband, father, and grandfather and will be hard to replace. We have our memories of Howard that will last a life time and will value forever. I feel fortunate to have had my time with him.

    Such a heartbreaking loss! So grateful for his life! Such a great example in the way he spent his days. My deepest sympathies to Brenda, his family and all who knew, loved, and will miss him. Praying the God of all Comfort, whom Howard now knows face to face, will comfort and sustain you all.

    I met Howard in high school. He showed such kindness to me as the new kid on the block. It sounds as if he lived his life as I expected, with purpose…love of God, family and friends. So sorry for your loss.
