These, the departed Brothers of the Order of Altotus, welcomed the spir-
it and soul of Brother J. Haworth Jonte as he moved from our physical world
to their spiritual world. It is fitting that we are sad-
dened by the passing of Brother Jonte, but I chal-
lenge us to look beyond our grief and our sorrow.
.. to celebrate the exceptional privilege of having
Brother Jonte in our midst for the time that we
" ,_ Officer of collegiate and professional chapters,
. District Counselor, Supreme Council, Order of
Altotus, and service on numerous committees and
panels, Brother Jonte has served the fraternity with
loyalty and commitment.
I first met Howie at the 1978 Conclave in
Denton. I remember Howie as warm, approach-
able and completely professional. As I progressed through the fraternity, my
relationship with Howie deepened. He embodied all three objects and was
always available when I needed him. He was an advisor, a source of infor-
mation and of guidance. In my role as Grand Historian, Howie has given me
boxes of files and folders filled with documents that reveal not only the facts,
but the character and devotion Howie brought to fraternal issues.
Howie not only influenced my fraternal service, but he was an influence
on others. I invite all who have special memories of this remarkable man to
step up to the front of the room and share those memories.
Thank you all. Now, let us stand and raise our arm in final salute.
