I am the adult son of Howard Pompel, I just wanted to set the record straight. Annette Conway is NOT Howard Pompel's daughter. I am his son, Cliff Pompel, and his ONLY daughter is Barrie Winston out of North Carolina.
He was a dearly loved and very well known man. A memorial service for him will be on Wednesday in Simi Valley. Please contact Cliff Pompel at cgpomp1 @ for information or to donate to the memorial fund for him. Thank you for all of you warm wishes.

I worked with your dad. I remember that he always spoke highly of you and Barrie. He always beamed when spoke of both of you. He also always ended his conversations to Barrie with "Daddy loves you". I will always have warm memories of your dad. He was great and he will be missed.

To Paul,

I worked with Howard and yes, he spoke many times lovingly about his kids, Cliff and Barrie. He spoke to them on the phone lovingly and he loved his kids. Please respect his kids during this difficult time. Howard loved his kids.

To marla, ALL im saying is that if they truly loved their father, they are sure doing a very dishonorable and disrespectful way of showing it. Lets mourn the man the right way. Does it really matter who called him dad or grampa, all that matters is the man was truly loved, and will be MISSED

I'm sure someone will tell me this is none of my business and, maybe it's not...but...this doesn't seem to be the time, or the place, to bring all of this family business up. I know everyone grieves in different ways, but it should be a time to reflect and to respect your father's memory...not to throw stones and say 'he loved me more than you.' My sympathies to all of you on your loss.

I heard about Howard's memorial service on the radio yesterday on my way to work. Howard and Beckie used to come to a lot of our events...they were listeners to the old Fabulous 570/690 KLAC Radio...I mentioned this morning on the Internet radio station we started when Clear Channel had to sell the radio station...that I remember a few years ago, my wife Karen and me, sitting with Howard and Beckie at breakfast at the Las Vegas Hilton, having a great time! We were all so saddened to learn of Howard's death in this tragic accident. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Howard's family.

To really set the record straight, FYI, I want to thank Reno for being so sensitive and accurate in his statements. Cliff has been my friend for years as has Howard. It is very unfortunate that, Beckie was so opposed to Howards relationship with his wonderful children. Howard wasn't able to share all of our gatherings and conversations with his son every week with that side of the family. Just to show Howard's ETERNAL love he left Cliff as his sole beneficiary. Howard has a strong basis of Jewish of faith and we plan on honoring him eternally.

you know what rebecca, we r the ones greiving and mourning for Howard. We are not the ones taking his widow to court. His sprit and soul are at peace, lets let his body doi the same. Since you are obviously a friend of Cliff's, tell cliff to do the same, and honor and respect his dad. Does it really matter who was howards biological kids, and who called him dad. NOT REALLY, just that we LOVED THE MAN.

You know what people, quit saying SHAME SHAME. All we r saying is that people need to respect how we feel about what Cliff said to start this blog. He did not need to take a stab at Annette like he did. We are hurting to. DOES money really matter in a time like this?? I guess it must to cliff. Me, as the last person to speak to howard before he died, I WILL TRULY MISS THE MAN

Wow...The last time I saw Howard I had french fries hanging out of my mouth. That's right. My wife and I are Step Daughter and Son in laws. We stopped hanging around and keeping in touch with Howard and Becky (Rene) because Becky pushed us away, as I'm sure she did with Howard's blood
children. Becky is all about money and she even said at his first memorial service on Tuesday that Howard was lazy. What a way to honor your husband of twelve years.
Anyway, Howard, Mom, my wife and I were at an Italian restaurant and getting ready to eat. I had a virus that eventually lead to cancer, but didn't know it at the time.
I started shaking for some reason and could not control it. Howard was very worried and he insisted on going to the hospital right away. I'm proud to say he liked me. He liked all his relatives, in law, or not.
After they shot me up with demoral at the emergency room everyone was still hungry since we left the Italian restaurant before we could eat so we went to McDonalds. Somewhere along the way home they put french fries in my mouth nose and ears. Then I woke up out of my unconciousness as we pulled in front of the house.
I know he was part of that. He was funny. He was respectful. I can't say anything bad about the man. I know he loved all of his children and in some strange way..he truly loved his wife.
God rest your wonderful soul Howard.

Cliff never talked about the money all he wants to do is to provide his father with his final wishes. Cliff and Barrie are suffering alot and i am with them 24/7; im asking you people to back off and leave these kids alone. as far as this goes please keep you negativity to your self. these kids need love and support at this time and Howard needs to be honored for the wonderful man he was, send them love and prayers in this time of need.
