Rest in Peace, T.

Very sad news. I met Terry a couple of times and he was a very nice and kind person.

Any details? Was it a 'fell asleep at the wheel' type of thing?

Apparently another car contacted him causing him to drive off the 5 freeway. He was ejected from the van.

He seemed like a genuinely nice person, which is rare in the industry, that's very sad news...

Rest in Peace Terry

My wife and I are so sorry to hear this sad news. Terry Howard was a wonderful man, and a gifted engineer. His presence will be sorely missed.
We knew Terry for over two decades and and he was a good friend.

Rest In Peace, Terry

I'm crushed. Wow and this happened a year ago. I bought a Recorder from him back around 2000 and became friends with him. He always helped me fix my MCI decks over the phone. Was thinking on calling him and saying hi. Guess not. The last time I talked to him he lectured me. I always apologized about bugging him ,and he got a bit mad and said "Glenn you're not bugging me we're friends call anytime you want". He was a great guy and lord he will be missed.
