In Memoriam: Howard Drollinger

I was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of my dear friend, Howard Drollinger. Howard was a tremendous community leader whose lifetime of service to Westchester will be felt for generations to come.

For decades, Howard Drollinger defined civic leadership in Westchester. Building on his mother's legacy, he helped give birth to downtown Westchester. Howard always put his community first - whether it was by fighting LAX expansion, spearheading economic development, or lending his name, his time and his resources to community beautification projects.

Howard was a treasure. He left our world a better place.

I will miss his friendship, and we will all miss his leadership.


-Bill

I too was very fond of Howard! We initially met more than 24 years ago when I first began my Real Estate Career! Thought upon our initial meeting when Howard came to my office insisting that "I stop sending him my junk Realtor flyers" - we became fast friends and developed a great respect for one another! Even when finding ourselves on the opposite ends of the negotiation table on a property transaction, he displayed true dignity and integrity! He was a very kind and generous man with a great sense of humor that so few really knew about him! He will be greatly missed, and always remembered as a truly great man!

Howard Drollinger was a early mentor of business to me. My dad Sid first met him in 1964, and Howard knew my dad quite well. I first met Howard in 1979. Howard always took the time to talk to me over the years, and to answer my questions to him about business. He was a good man, and a honest man. Howard - we will miss you. Sincerely, Barry Maiten
