After 50 years as a member and his eventual retirement from Local 150 Operating Engineers, he was a participant in the Craft Circuit and well known for his “blue jean rugs”. Howard is survived by his children, Brad (Kathy) Holcman of rural Oglesby, Brenda (Rex) Johnsen of Lake Havasu City, AZ, and Beth Ann (Tony) Aussem of Lee’s Summit, MO; his grandchildren Ryan (Linda Pfalzgraf) Holcman, Amie (Gil) Valenzuela, Chad (Ashley) Holcman, Cara (Brian Mole’) Bruski, Christopher (Rebecca) Holcman, Katie Beth (Dale Hansen) Holcman, and Marcy (Jeff Hanson) Ruva, three great granddaughters and a great grandson on the way. He was preceded in death by his wife Wanda on December 8, 2015, his parents and brother in infancy. Due to Covid restrictions, a private service for immediate family will be held at Burgess Funeral Home, LaSalle. He will be laid to rest at Deer Park Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in Howard’s name to the LaSalle Veteran’s Home or Deer Park Cemetery. A Celebration of Life will be planned for a later date.
