SO. OGDEN - On Monday, December 15, 2003, Dad decided it was time to gather the family together for one more traditional Christmas celebration. He passed away knowing how much we loved him.
We are pleased to know he is now free to dance and lead the Christmas music in a heavenly place.
Howard was born May 4, 1912, a son of Roy L. Tribe and Edna Willey. He married his eternal dancing partner, Annis Brown in the Salt Lake Temple April 15. Mom and Dad had been dancing to "I've Got You Under My Skin" for 65 years.
Dad was always in the garden with his flowers and took great pride in sharing the beauty of his manicured yard with others. He was also an ardent sportsman. He belonged to the Pin Tail Duck Club. He was instrumental in the development of Game Birds Unlimited and cleared Wildcat run for Snow Basin's first season.
Howard entered the family furniture business, Tribe's Home Furniture, with his father Roy. Tribe's operated from 1913 to 1980. Some of you still have furniture purchased there. He devoted over 50 years to the business and worked side by side with wife Annis and son, Bill. He was past president of the Ogden Exchange Club and member of the Chamber of Commerce and the Ogden Golf and Country Club.
Howard was a faithful member of the LDS Church. He served as Priesthood chorister for over 60 years. He served a German/Austrian LDS mission 1932-1934. Dad was a veteran of WW II, serving in the U.S. Army intelligence corp.
