Howard Joel Schwab Obituary
February 13, 1943 - November 10, 2016 Judge Howard J. Schwab, a great jurist, scholar and family man, passed away at the age of 73. Howard grew up in Van Nuys and attended UCLA and UCLA law school. He began his career as an assistant attorney general where he handled a number of high profile cases including the Manson family case. He was appointed to the bench in 1984 and presided over a number of memorable cases. While he excelled at his career, the greatest joy in his life was his family: wife Michelle to whom he was married 46 years, children Joshua and Bethany and their spouses Sora and Pablo, grandchildren Adrian and Victoria, brother Richard and sister in law Colleen and nephews Joseph and Gregory and late sister Helen. Howard's sense of humor, great love of history and extensive collections of books and swords are just some of the characteristics that made him so unique. We will all miss him terribly but were blessed to have him as part of our lives.
