Obituary for Roger Alan Howard

Roger Howard, 73, of Morristown, New Jersey (and Palm Beach, Florida) died peacefully in his home on August 21. Roger was a longtime and proud resident of Morristown. He was born in South Orange and other than a 4 year stint in Illinois for college, he has always lived a few turns off Columbia Turnpike. Luckily, during those 4 years at Bradley University, he met the love of his life and wife of 50 years, Julie.

Roger was a restauranteur and real estate developer who most notably opened the Greenhouse restaurant in Morristown in 1976 and The Park Savoy in Florham Park in 1984. Over the years he provided mentorship, jobs and opportunities for countless people in the restaurant/ bar business and real estate. He loved nothing more than imparting advice, sharing experiences and offering guidance to aspiring entrepreneurs and business people. He always believed in big dreams, big ideas and unstoppable ambition. Roger was a passionate football fan, (go Giants!), loved golf and was enthusiastic poker player. He loved all thing Jersey – The Sopranos, Jersey tomatoes and casually saying “Fuhgeddaboudit!”

Roger is predeceased by his parents Rhoda and Mort Howard. He is survived with so much love by wife Julie, sister Susan Schuander, daughters Dori Howard and Ilissa Howard and grandchildren Rhys, Madeleine, Mila and Ruby.

A memorial will be held Monday, August 26th at 11am at 20 Normandy Heights Road. The family will be sitting Shiva at their home immediately following until 8pm.

In lieu of flowers the family requests donations sent to the Community Soup Kitchen in Morristown.
