Howard F. Schwartz

Howard F. Schwartz of Plainfield died early Nov. 15. He was 94.

Drafted into service in 1941 from New Jersey, he served in the U.S. Army Signal Corps in the European Theatre during World War II. From June 6, 1944, to May 8, 1945, he served in the Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force under the command of General Dwight D. Eisenhower, moving the communications facilities from London to Paris and later to Wiesbaden. He earned the rank of major and was awarded the Bronze Star for meritorious conduct for displaying ingenuity, leadership, and technical skill while rebuilding demolished telephone and wire communications.

He returned to civilian life and earned a B.A. in business from Rutgers University.

Mr. Schwartz was married in January 1943 and is survived by his wife of 69 years, Mildred L. Schwartz, and his only daughter, Carole (Dennis) Brown.

Additional survivors include grandchildren Jennifer (Brian) Hoffmeyer, Eric (Laura) Fiste, Aimee (Chris) Dean, and Jeremy (Tonya) Schwartz; great-grandchildren Benjamin, Brendan, Cole, Nolan, Ian, Wyatt, Elliott, Eliana, Conrad, Asher, Ailsa, and Carsten; and step great-grandchildren, Jessica and Sarah.

Preceding him in death were sons Brian Howard and Mark Edward.

A private service will be held for family.
