Howard Fieldstead Ahmanson, Jr. (born 1950) is an heir of the Home Savings bank fortune built by his father, Howard Fieldstead Ahmanson, Sr. Ahmanson Jr. is a multi-millionaire philanthropist and financier of the causes of many Christian conservative cultural, religious and political organizations. He lives in Orange County, California. He has been married to journalist Roberta Green Ahmanson since 1986. He is somewhat reclusive and has Tourette syndrome; his wife usually communicates with the media and others on his behalf. Ahmanson is the son of the American financier Howard F. Ahmanson, Sr (1906-1968). His parents divorced when he was 10. His father then married beauty and fashion expert Caroline Leonetti in 1965. His mother Dorothy Grannis Ahmanson (1907-1979) married Denis Emmons Sullivan, a San Diego attorney, in 1966. Despite the trappings of wealth, Howard, Jr. was a lonely child. He has said, "I resented my family background, [my father] could never be a role model, whether by habits or his lifestyle, it was never anything I wanted." Howard Ahmanson, Sr. died when his son was 18, and Ahmanson Jr. inherited a vast fortune.show more
