I would like to express my deepest condolences to Ken Howard's family and friends. Ken Howard was a great SAG President who did so much for his fellow actors. He will be missed. I have admired Ken Howard since I first became aware of him from his groundbreaking show, The White Shadow. Thank you for your service, Ken Howard. Rest in peace.
Thank you, Ken Howard, for being such an exemplary President, and for always putting first, all of us in SAG-AFTRA. You made this union great.
I watched Mr. Howard growing up in Detroit. The White Shadow made me think, “Why not me?” And here I am today, producing my first SAG-AFTRA signatory. He showed me I could. Thank you Sir, and god bless your family.
It was with genuine sadness that I have just learned that we lost a wonderful man. I always felt, as I read Ken’s messages and observed his actions, that he clearly embodied deep commitment and unwavering sincerity as the president of our union. I sensed the warmth, compassion and devotion which marked his executive performance. I would like to extend my sincere condolences to his family and friends, as well as to console them in some measure with the recognition that his legacy of selfless dedication to the craft and to the union has already touched many hearts and will undoubtedly continue to remain a source of great inspiration in the future. Neither he nor his brilliant example will be forgotten.
