Howard was born on December 18, 1930, in Comanche, Texas to his parents Walter J. Adams and Birty Mae Adams. He entered into the Air Force in 1952 and proudly served 4 years. During his time in the Air Force he received a National Defense Service Medal, a Good Conduct Medal, a Korean Service Medal, and a U.N. Service Medal.
