This week Ray Czahor published additional remembrances of our friend Howard A. Daniel III. Thank you.
"Wow, this is getting scary! David Lange and now Howard Daniel, both friends of Philippine Collectors.
"Howard and I both served in Vietnam at Tan Son Nhut AB at the same time in 1968-1969 but didn't know each other then. Met back in the States at a coin show somewhere in the 1990's. Howard was a good guy to young collectors and gave away hundreds of pounds of coins and paper money to them at show across the country.
"Howard had some Philippine coins which he consigned to me years ago and I included in my Mailbids over the years. As John says below he studied coins and paper money of Southeast Asia countries and published books about them. He was the expert!
"He was married to a Vietnamese woman and half the year lived in Vietnam and half the year here in the US. I will miss Howard like David."
John Riley writes:
"Sad to hear news of friend Howard Daniel passing away on Wednesday. I believe it was from a very fast-moving cancer.
"Howard was a retired Army master sergeant and a great ambassador for Asian numismatics. He was a serious collector and writer particularly about Vietnam numismatics. In the 1990s he had a regular monthly column in World Coin News and it was there that I became acquainted with Ray and with the WWII Remembered crew. Howard joined us at several Philippine Collectors Forum sessions over the years."
In Saturday's issue of MPC Gram,
Joe Usibelli writes:
"I was saddened, when I read of Howard Daniel passing in the Gram. He was an energetic and giving person, who contributed greatly to our group and the numismatic community. I last saw Howard at the 2022 FUN Show. My family and I were in Florida to attend a wedding of a friend of my daughter. Of course, I slipped away, to Orlando, to attend FUN. My real reason for traveling from Alaska to Florida! The first people I saw were Kathy Freeland and Howard Daniel. We ended up talking for more than an hour. He talked about his travels and new projects in Southeast Asia. He asked if I had his book on coins and currency of Vietnam. I did not. He walked to the booth, pulled a copy out his bag and gave it to me. He wouldn't accept payment. I had him sign it. The book is a fine resource, as well as a trigger for a fond memory of Howard."
