Howard Lahr was born in Benicia to German immigrants. His grandson, Mike Lydon, says during the Great Depression, his grandpa worked with the California Conservation Camps in Humboldt County and sent money back to his family.
Howard was married to his wife Amelia for close to 50 years! During that time, he founded the German Shorthaired Pointer Club of Northern California, drove a car until he was 99-years-old and says his secret to a long life includes staying active and spending time with family.
