Ju-Chang "Howard" Huang Obituary
Ju-Chang (Howard) Huang died on January 16, 2018 in Hong Kong after a brief illness. He was 77 years old.
Howard was born in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, in 1941, the third child of seven siblings. By the time of his high school graduation he was one of a hundred students in Taiwan to gain automatic admittance to the prestigious National Taiwan University without the prerequisite of entrance exams. He went on to complete his masters degree and PhD in less than three years time at the University of Texas-Austin, then began his professional career at the University of Missouri at Rolla (now Missouri University of Science and Technology), where he served as professor until 1992. In 1993 he was invited to begin an Environmental Engineering program at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, where he was a professor and researcher until the official end of his career in 2006. However, he remained passionate about the field of Environmental Engineering, and continued to do research and consultancies until the end of his life. Howard was also one of the founders of OCEESA (Overseas Chinese Environmental Engineers and Scientists Association).
Howard married Amy Hung Huang in 1965 and had two daughters, Alina and Nancy. The family was baptized at the First Assembly of God in Rolla before Amy died after a prolonged battle with cancer. After Amy's death, Howard married Jolynn C. Huang in 1986 and had a third daughter, Jacqueline.
Howard enjoyed numerous travels both professionally, and for leisure, visiting nearly forty countries throughout his lifetime. Although he remained active in his professional work, he also devoted considerable time to his family. He was blessed with robust good health to nearly the end of his life, and loved climbing, bicycling, and hiking.
Howard is survived by his loving wife, daughters, and grandsons, Alex and Aidan Riley.
A memorial for Howard will be held at the Rolla Bible Church, 1801 E. 10th Street, Rolla, MO 65401, on Saturday, June 23, 2018, at 10:30 AM, with visitation beginning at 10:00 AM. The service will be followed by interment at Ozark Hills Memorial Gardens at 12110 US Hwy 63, Rolla, MO 65401.
