He is retired from Oklahoma Christian University, where her served as Chairman of the Division of Business for 16 years. He says his greatest joy is "just being a part of an outstanding church."

For relaxation, Howard likes golf, country music, traveling, and just being with his kids, grandkids, and friends.
