Huell will most definitly be missed...

...but he left quite a legacy and his memory will live on. Some of my favorites from him were when he did the 5 corners of Calif. and the show on the State of Jefferson. RIP Huell, it was trualy a sad day when you left us.

Yeah, like the time he went to Magalia and we learned how the town got its name.

I can just see him at the Pearly Gates. “So these gates were made an eternity ago? That’s Amazing, they look brand new. And tell me about that cloud over there…”

People don't know this about Huell Howser he was/always will be a US Marine. I even heard that he reached the rank of Gunnery Sgt. Semper Fi Devil dog. (Rip)

Love hisshows. I will pay closer attention to them now.. I happened across his show on Angel Island this week. We have been there twice but it seems I learned more in that 1/2 hr that I did in previous trips. R.I.P. HH

That's funny right there, I don't care who you are.

RIP Huell.

I never knew this about Huell, but he was big early on and gave it all up to come be one of us common folk.
