Philip Howe was a Wonderful Wikitreer

+13 votes
Over the past several years, Philip and I collaborated on profiles and research on Wikitree.  In actuality, it was Philip helping out a lot and me returning the favor in small ways.  He was always a great asset to Wikitree.

Just got some notes on my 'Family Activity Feed' of updates to his profile done by Eowyn (THANKS!!!)  Philip passed away a couple months ago and Eowyn was doing the cleanup tasks.  Just wanted everyone else that had dealt with Philip of Wikitree's loss.

I think I need to go outside and have a good cry ...

Sorry to hear this news. crying

Philip Howe and I apparently shared a number of ancestors, based on the number of profiles where I bumped into him. In my early days at WikiTree, I started thinking of him as "Buck Howe" -- the name that appeared in many records of his edits -- because that made it easier for me to distinguish him from Philip Smith, who also edited some of those same profiles.
