In Memoriam

November 15, 2010

Howard Zazove, a suburban Chrysler-Plymouth dealer who later opened a namesake Pontiac store in Elmhurst, died Sept. 14. He was 86.

Mr. Zazove also served as a director on the CATA board from 1972 to 1975.

He operated LaGrange Chrysler-Plymouth from 1963 to 1975, then sold it and opened Howard Pontiac in 1975. Steven Zazove, now proprietor of Howard Buick-Pontiac-GMC, said his father sold used cars on Western Avenue in Chicago for about 12 years, beginning at age 16, before advancing to the finance department and, ultimately, dealer principal.

Howard Zazove is survived by his wife, Marge; sons Steven and David; daughters Lori and Ivy; and 10 grandchildren. Donations appreciated to the Leukemia Research Foundation, (847) 424-0600.
