Because of love of the outdoors, he then became a logger with a career lasting more than 40 years. He subsequently worked for Newcomb Lumber, Fiest Hardwoods and Baird Brothers, all of Ohio.

Howard was an avid reader, becoming especially knowledgable of the American Civil War. He also enjoyed woodworking and square dancing with Louise in their younger years as members of the Kon Yaught Kickers.
He was a member of St. Bernadettes Roman Catholic Church in Saegertown.

The Tenney family has been in my heart and life for 39 years. I treasure the memories of listening to and sharing stories in their kitchen for hours, and how they welcomed me into their family. In my mind's eye, I can still see Mr. T's eyes light up and hear his laugh. I'm thankful for his long, happy life, and the knowledge that he and Mrs. T are once again together.
