COMMENTS FROM CLASSMATES AND FRIENDS

My condolences to his wife, Geri and family. He was one of the sweetest and nicest people I ever knew in school.
Howard was a wonderful classmate. My sympathy to his family. He will be remembered by the class of '60.
I am so sad to hear about Howard’s passing. He was a fine gentleman and a good friend to me during our time at DAHS. Please give my deepest sympathy to his wife and family for me.

I remember Howard as being a very nice person in high school. He served as a Nassau County Police Officer. I had limited contact with him in our high school mechanical drawing class. Our next encounter was at the first class reunion in 1980. We had a lot in common because I also served as a police officer. I extend my sincere sympathy to his family.
I will always remember Howard as one of the absolutely sweetest guys I knew in high school. Along with all who knew him, I mourn his passing.
How sad. He lived around the corner from me on Cornflower Road during our schooldays. What a decent human being he was. A terrible loss! He and Geri were together for many years. My condolences to Geri and his family.
I was real sorry to hear that Howie Burtt passed away. I was also saddened to hear that he had to endure a hospice situation. He was a good guy and I will remember him well.Frank Barning
More than 50 years later, I can still see Howie's smiling face and great haircut. He touched a lot of us with his warm, pleasant manner.

Oh my, so very sorry to read this. He was in hospice care so perhaps his time had come. My love to Geri and his family.
Our class of 1960 was small and we knew just about everyone. My deepest sympathy to his family.
