My Uncle Howard Passed Away Last Night - Please Post a Coin (or Medal or Currency) from 1928
My dad was one of 10 children, and my Uncle Howard was the youngest of those ten. He was an icon in the Hospitality and Tourism industry. When he retired from the corporate world decades ago, he became a Professor at Virginia Tech, and was still teaching classes up until just a few months ago, despite his age of 94. About five years ago or so, Virginia Tech even named the Department of Hospitality and Tourism after my Uncle Howard.
After my dad passed away 22 years ago, in a subtle way my Uncle Howard unspokenly "stepped in my dad's shoes". Over those following years, he gave me guidance and strength. We shared many fun times together, things that I would have liked to have shared with my dad. We had a LOT of laughs, as he loved my jokes.
In honor of my Uncle Howard, here are my four coins dated the year he was born. Please post yours.
