Of Waltham, passed away on August 8, 2020 after a brief illness.
He was born in Cambridge, Ma, on September 14, 1934, son of the late Michael and Isabel Walsh.
He was an iron worker for several years until an injury left him unable to work. But he was quick and proud to tell everyone of all the buildings he worked on in Boston.
After his injury he devoted his life to caring for his mother after she had a stroke which left her bedridden.
Instead of putting her in a nursing home he selflessly and tirelessly cared for her at home for several years until her death.
Howie enjoyed the simple pleasures in life. He loved to be outside in his yard and being in his screen house. He enjoyed watching all sports, pro & college teams, it didn’t matter to him.
Howie will be remembered by everyone as a loving uncle, devoted friend, friendly neighbor and a kind and gentle soul.
