Roger Carrington Howes, a resident of Darien, died on Aug. 31 in Darien. Born Dec. 12, 1924 in New Rochelle, N.Y., he was the son of the late Allen P. and Marian Hudson Howes. He was 89.

Mr. Howes graduated with a bachelor’s degree from St. Lawrence University in Canton, N.Y. He was owner of Howes Real Estate and Appraisal Co. He served with the U.S. Navy from December 1942 to January 1946 as a signalman on the U.S.S. Clinton and U.S.S. Miller.

He was a member of the American Legion. Mr. Howes enjoyed fishing with his father’s friend, Albert Einstein, on Lake Kiwassa in New York when he was a teenager. He loved animals and wildlife — especially his large English Mastiff dogs. He also enjoyed gardening, refinishing furniture, photography and a good joke.
