Massive dieback on ornamental pears

Two of our Chanticleer(?) ornamental pear trees bloomed, leafed out and then died back as shown in this photo. The wood is still flexible and green. Is it safe to assume they might leaf out again? They are in our front lawn, so theywere pretty well watered last year.

To be honest, I really dislike these trees, and the only thing I would regret about losing them would be paying to have them removed. But my husband likes them. He wants me to DO something for them, but I keep saying all we can do is wait and see what they do. Thoughts? - Tina -
