In December 1915, Howard enlisted with the Canadian Expeditionary Force in the First World War.

By 1920, Howard had a business as a produce dealer at 900 Granville Street. He was living at no. 2, 1846 Commercial Drive. He continued to work in the grocery business until about 1940.

In 1939, Howard and Ida were living at 1215 Richards Street.
