Edgar Ross? No, but well knew of him. Fine man if you wanted results. Won himself a chest full of medals. I think he went and retired about a year ago. Last I heard him and his wife moved out to a cabin on Lake Don Julio. Lucky guy, getting to take it easy. Beats fighting crime in this dump, that's for sure.

Howard Sawicki to Jack Marston

Howard Sawicki is a minor character and Stranger featured in Red Dead Redemption. He appears in and gives the player the Stranger Side-mission "Remember My Family".


Howard Sawicki is an agent of the Bureau of Investigation stationed in Blackwater. Not much else is known about him. He claims that he has never worked with Edgar Ross, but despite this, he knows a lot about the man, including where he currently lives in retirement. However, this information can also be found in a newspaper article.


John Marston briefly encounters (possibly) him at the beginning of the mission Bear One Another's Burdens while asking where Edgar Ross is.

Three years later, Jack Marston meets him in Blackwater and tells him he has a package for Edgar Ross. Howard believes him and tells Jack where Edgar and his wife live. He is not seen again.


Sure, son. Why you ask?
Howard Sawicki to Jack Marston


  • He shares the same voice actor as Charles Kinnear.
  • He closely resembles the man counting money at the beginning of the mission "Bear One Another's Burdens".
  • Howard is probably of Polish descent as his surname, Sawicki, is a typical Polish surname and it was created from Sawice - a village in the Podlasie region.
