In loving memory of Howard John Rosenfelder, the only child of Frank and Marie Rosenfelder, who succumbed to natural causes at the age of 81 on Sunday, Feb. 20, 2011, in Sacramento, Calif. He was born Sept. 22, 1929, in Waukesha.

   A loving husband, father and grandfather, Howard was a longtime Waukesha resident and business owner of Clarks Filling Station.

   Known as Howie to his friends and acquaintances, his interests included bowling (a 300 in 1956), CYO Baseball and golfing. In his youth, Howie pitched for the Cleveland Indians AAA baseball and pursued his lifetime love of hunting and fishing in the wilds of Wisconsin and Northern California.

   Howie moved to Concord, Calif., in 1977, and Sacramento in 2006 with his wife of 57 years, Phyllis (maiden name Furrer, daughter of Jack and Dorothy Furrer), and enjoyed following the pursuits of his grandsons interests in baseball and basketball.

   Howie is survived by his wife, Phyllis; son, Howard; daughters, Wendie, Lynn and Cindy; his five grandsons, Ryan, John, Nick, Patrick and Joey; and nine great grandchildren, all residents of California; as well as nieces and nephews residing in Florida and the greater Waukesha area.
