Howard J. Breslin Obituary
Howard J. Breslin, 92, of Bellevue, WA, passed away on October 1st, 2013, surrounded by his family. Howard "Howie" Breslin was born in Seattle, WA on August 25th, 1921 to Jake and Sadie (Friedman) Breslin. He graduated from Garfield High School where he met and later married his high school sweetheart, Bettie Bean. In 1942 he enlisted in the military where he was trained to fly in the US Army Air Force. Upon returning home after the war, he attended the University of Washington. After entering the workforce in sales at Puget Sound Pipe, he and Bettie started their home and family; eventually moving from Seattle to the Bellevue area.

Howard continued his career until retirement at the age of 80 years. Howard was a gym-at-5am type of guy that loved to challenge himself! He started skiing again in his 50's; piano playing at 60; Spanish lessons at 70; learning guitar in his late 80's; golfing until 90. His wonderful smile, great stories and gentlemanly nature will be dearly missed by those close to him.

Howard was preceded in death by his wife Bettie Breslin and his son Jay Richard Breslin. He is survived by his daughter Kathie (Gary Signs); daughter Laurie; grandson Jason Rubin (Tamora Schoeneberg); grandson Danny Rubin (Sokhon Rubin), great grandchildren Gelesia Din, Claire Schoeneberg-Lawton, Nick Rubin, and Olivia Rubin.
