Howard S. Dattan Obituary
Dattan, Howard S. CARLSBAD -- Howard S. Dattan, born January 26, 1920 in Seattle, Washington, passed away September 6, 2013. A complex and fascinating man who served in the Army Air Corps in North Africa and Italy during World War II, completed his education at the University of Southern California. After the war, he attended the University of Santa Clara School of Law. He had two sons with Evelyn (Angerhofer) Dattan ~ Scott Dattan of Anchorage, Alaska and Christopher Dattan of Seattle, Washington. Howard was a member of the California State Bar from 1949, served with the Judge Advocate in Japan during the Korean War, and was the first Dean of the University of San Diego, School of Law. He practiced law in California for many years. For the last twenty years of his life, he traveled the world with Jean Milam, the love of his life. He died gracefully in their home in Carlsbad, California. Howard will long be remembered for his love of the mountains, animals, flowers and poetry. He always looked forward to seeing USC beat Notre Dame in football and provided inspiration to his granddaughters, Devin, Valorraine, Lorelei, Gretta and Fiona. His wry sense of humor and the certainty that he was right will be missed. Insistent to the end, Howard wanted no memorial services, but hoped to inspire others to donate as he had, to D.E.L.T.A. Rescue (Dedicated Everlasting Love To Animals), P.O. Box 9, Glendale, CA 92109 (www.deltarescue.com)
