Howard Roseman lived a long and wonderful life accomplishing many things along the way.
While attending college the the University of Wisconsin he joined the ROTC. At the start of World War II, he signed up immediately as an officer in the United States Navy. His shoulder injury from sports precluded him from military service unless he had an operation. Howard had the operation to join the Navy and subsequently spent 3 years in the South Pacific in combat duty.
Howard was a wonderful son to his parents, Jessie and David and his brother Gilbert. He spent over 50 years in a law partnership with his brother.
Howard was a devoted father to his daughters, Robin and Jamie and worked hard to provide them so many opportunities. from summer camp to a college education. He was extremely proud of his daughters and his daughters were extremely proud of him.
Howard was a true liberal who believed in all people regardless of any distinction. He had a difficult time understanding racism, antisemitism and injustices against a specific group of individuals. He marched on Washington with his daughter Jamie to protest these injustices and act as a lawyer observer, many times in the 1970's. Howard left a legacy to all who knew him, that we must be active participants against social injustice and to use our rights as citizens to fight against those injustices.
He married Audrey Roseman in 1980 expanding his family with Audrey's 4 daughters and subsequent son in laws and children. His growing extended family gave him great satisfacation and he loved being a grandfather and great grandfather.
Howard's true love was golf. He was an active member of Island Hills Golf Club for over 50 years, playing as much as was possible. His love of the game took him to many courses around the country and he loved to tell " golf stories". He always said he would quit when he was beat by his daughter Jamie, and it never happened. He played golf in his 90's and was frustrated with a score of 99. His golf stories made his smile even brighter.
Howard was a wonderful friend to so many. He had lifetime friends from High School and College and of course his golf pals from Island Hills Golf Club. This very close group were very special to him. Most of his friends had passed on before him and we are sure they are all on the " course " playing a round together.
