Both Darlene and Larry passed away yesterday. Darlene was married to Don Iovino and had had been real sick for over 2 years with cancer.
Larry Howard was married to Pat Howard and they were the previous owners of Phenix rods . She also worked with me at the WON BASS Pro tournaments.
What a sad Memorial Day for her and all of us. Our theoughts and prayers are with Don and my best friend Pat.

I had heard about Darlene but not Larry.....that is sad and a huge loss of the folks that did so much for fishing. My thoughts and prayers to Pat Howard she is such a sweet person. Thanks for posting Bev!
God bless the Iovino and Howard families!
Ultimate Bass Radio the West's only all bass fishing radio show!
condolences to both families.
Bad news for sure. I posted on another link about Larry. I had some good laughs with him and Pat. Even stayed at their home a couple of times. GREAT PEOPLE.
More sad news may GOD be with Larrys family.When I went into doing tournaments back in 1993 I started buying Phenix rods still have them still you use them.
We at Phenix Rods are very saddened by this news. The Industry has lost a true legend in in the rod industry. Our condolences go out to the Howard and Iovino family! May god bless them!
6 foot Don Iovino doodling special , bought one from Larry Howard and it was my first " High dollar " rod . He treated me very well over the years . He is a good man .
It was a sad day indeed.....thoughts and prayers go out to all their family and friends .
My heart goes out to Don and Pat two great friends, I'm very saddened for your lost.
My prayers go out to Pat, she and Bev.,they were our babysitters for the WON Bass tour for ever, and what can I say about the "Godfather", great guy, it's been a long battle , my prayers are with you both .
Darlene was a old friend, and old friends are the best. I am talking 32 years. She will be missed by many many people beside her family. Don stayed and took care of her, he deserved much credit, for his faithful caring of Darlene. Never got to know Larry Howard as much as I would have liked too. But what I know is Pat Howard and she is a Jewel so Larry must be the same. We are losing our buddies fast and that is the life is. We need to be ready because we do not know the day the year or the hour, but it is coming. God Bless the families. Fred Ward and Lana Ward
