Howard was born on December 19, 1938 to Paul Howard Guidry and Lucille Guidry (Hughes) in Galveston, Texas.
After graduating high school, Howard went on to serve in the Honorable United States Air Force from Feb. 1958-Feb.1962 as an Airman 1st Class E-4. After his military service, Howard was an insurance salesman for AETNA and then later worked for True Value Hardware for almost 40 years before retiring.
Growing up on the coast, Howard had many stories about how he enjoyed fishing and crabbing as a youth. He also always had a love for music which eventually led him to releasing a record called “Crazy Baby”, with singing group “The Coppertones”, that was produced by Major Bill Smith. His love for music always stayed with him, as he loved to make photograph music boxes for family and friends as he got older. Howard was also an avid Dallas Cowboys and Texas Longhorns football fan. If there was a game on, he was watching.
