Letters: Disregarding Huell Howser's wishes

January 17, 2013

Re "Fans bid Howser farewell," Jan. 16

When Huell Howser passed away, he apparently made it very clear to his friends and loved ones that he did not want a memorial service.

It's a shame that L.A. City Councilman Tom LaBonge felt that he knew best and organized a memorial service for Howser at the Griffith Observatory. Was it well attended? Certainly; people loved Howser and wanted to honor him. Was it respectful? Absolutely not.

LaBonge showed little respect to Howser by blatantly disregarding his final wishes.
