I just received the sad news that longtime USAWA leader and All-Round weightlifter Howard Prechtel has died. Howard was known by everyone in our organization and was greatly respected by all that knew him. His funeral will be tomorrow, November 23rd, at 11:30 AM. I know several of us have memories and stories about Howard and how he has impacted our lifting careers. Please send me these stories, as I would like to dedicate this week to Howard by features about him in the website’s Daily News.
