The man you are reading about was my Uncle by marriage. My Uncle Howie lived his life in a very respectful way. He always had his friends, family and peers to help him make good decisions and that was how he served his community. He will truly be missed by all. R.I.P.

I went through law school with him. He was a gracious, intelligent, and fun guy then, and he took those traits with him throughout his professional and personal life. I will miss him.

Judge Zeidwig was a gentle, caring and loving person who was very genuine. He presided over my son's case about 6 years ago. He was fair and he showed compassion when he sentenced the kids. He would always give them something that helped to rehabilitate them. He will be sadly missed by all. May God bless his soul!

howard was my first employer as a law student after my father met him at the courthouse. He helped me understand the law and by watching him in the court room, how to try a case. He was a true gentleman, teacher and lively humorist that could really tell a joke. I'll and the whole Finizio family will miss him.

Howie was our friend, our mentor and truly a great great individual. We will never forget the kindness he always showed towards our family. I remember him and his smile as he presented my son Kipp with his first was as if Kipp were his child and he took such pleasure in seeing him take off on his first bike. Howie was always there when needed and he will be so very missed by all. Our hearts go out to Carole and the family.

It is one year lataer and he is still missed. Another judge sits in his chair, but can never adequately fill his seat! His compassion for the youth brought before him was unsurpassed and was matched by his love of teaching the young attorneys assigned to his division. All those privilaged enough to work with him knew how blessed they were.

A very long time ago I use to babysit for Howies children. Yes thats what we called him! I will never forget what a down to earth sweet man he was. He helped me years later with a problem and had such empathy and understanding. He helped SO many people.

The resent post on this site under my name was a mistake by the site managers. What I said about Judge Zeidwig is as follows ":An amazing person who loved without conditions and could always make you smile.His wit and humor will always be remembered by those who were blessed to know him as a friend."
