“When Brian Howard’s friends gather to remember him Saturday they will have plenty of material,” Mike Cassidy reports for The San Jose Mercury News.
“Sure, Howard was on the Apple team that designed the original Macintosh. But it wasn’t just the cutting-edge technology that he worked on that placed him among those who helped define Silicon Valley,” Cassidy reports. “It was the way he worked on it – at times work-obsessed, but still able to find time to play Renaissance-era instruments, sing in a Gregorian choir and take his wife square-dancing.”
Cassidy reports, “Howard died this month at 65, after more than two years of battling cancer. Where will his friends start when they memorialize an eclectic person of such accomplishment?”
