On behalf of my colleagues at the richardhowe.com blog, I want to share our condolences and thoughts today with our senior editor and publisher, Dick Howe, Jr., and his entire family. Mr. Howe, Sr., will be remembered as an exemplary family man, excellent attorney, Lowell champion, star baseball player, and true citizen. Among his many traits, Richard P. Howe, Sr., demonstrated enormous political courage at a time when Lowell’s future was in the balance and helped move the city forward to the stronger position it holds now.
