    Sorry to hear of Howards passing. My husband and I spent many enjoyable times with Howard and his family when he lived in Santa Rosa. I hope you kids remember Bruno, he taught with your father and they e-mailed each other until Bruno died in 2009. Here’s to fond memories Jane Malchow

  3. Mr. Haylock was my English teacher at Santa Rosa Junior High, and later my neighbor on Deer Park Drive in Santa Rosa.In class Mr. Hayock was soft spoken and an outstanding teacher. I enjoyed the two years he was my teacher.
    As my neighbor, he was still soft spoken and a world of information in regards to gardening.
    A friend of mine currently lives in his former home and when I visit my friend, Mr. Haylock’s name always comes up in regards to the yard.
