Thomas J. Ashley ’37 died Jan. 24, 2005.

Howard Shaw Tuthill ’39 (Law ’41) died peacefully in his sleep, July 8, 2015, at his residence in Naples, Fla., at the age of 96. Howard's beloved wife, Agnes McAliley Tuthill, predeceased him in 2012. Howard met Agnes on a blind date at Randolph-Macon College in Lynchburg, Va., and fell instantly in love. They were married April 27, 1943, at the height of World War II. Howard and Agnes are survived by their four children—Howard S. Tuthill III (Terry) and his wife, Wendy, William C. Tuthill and his wife, Barbara, Walter C. Tuthill, and Virginia T. Clifford (Gigi); eight grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren. Howard was born Sept. 30, 1918, and grew up in Marlborough, N.Y. He received his undergraduate and law degrees from the University of Virginia, where he graduated summa cum laude and was editor of Virginia Law Review. Howard began his legal career in 1941 at the firm of Davis, Polk & Wardwell in New York City. His legal career was interrupted by World War II, during which he served in the U. S. Navy on an aircraft carrier in the South Pacific. He retired from the military with the rank of Commander. Howard resumed his legal career with Davis Polk in 1945, specializing initially in litigation and subsequently in trust and estate matters. In 1951, Howard moved from Davis Polk to Cummings & Lockwood in Stamford, Conn., where he would spend the rest of his professional life (62 years, retiring in 2013). He played a key role in the growth of Cummings & Lockwood from 14 lawyers with a single office to one of the most prestigious firms in Connecticut, with offices in Stamford, Greenwich and West Hartford, Conn., and in Naples, Palm Beach, and Bonita Springs, Fla. Howard was almost single handedly responsible for building the trust and estate practice at Cummings & Lockwood and was for many years the most respected trust and estate lawyer in Connecticut. Howard served on the Trust Board of Citibank until its dissolution in 1979 and was a Director of McGraw-Hill Inc. from 1974 through his retirement from the board in 1989. With the exception of his family, Cummings & Lockwood was the single most important part of his life. The firm was his second family, and he dearly loved every lawyer, accountant, paralegal, and staff member. Howard was an avid sportsman, actively participating in golf, skiing (until he was 86 years old), hunting, fishing, scuba diving, white water rafting, and kayaking. Howard loved to travel, and he and Agnes visited many of the world's most exotic locales. Howard was truly a modern man. He worshiped his family, loved his work, and was respected by everyone he came in contact with. He will be missed by all who knew him. Contributions in Howard's memory can be made to the University of Virginia Law School Foundation. (Published in Naples Daily News July 16, 2015)

Edward C. Bostock Jr. ’40 passed away Jan. 19, 2011.

Leroy Cooper Jr. ’40 passed away July 25, 2015. Born in Memphis, Tenn., Dec. 6, 1918, he attended public schools there, graduating from Central High School. He spent most of his summers on a cotton plantation in Earl, Ark., riding horses and swimming in the muddy rivers and lakes on the plantation. He enjoyed tennis and in high school was the lifeguard and swimming instructor at the Memphis Country Club. At the early age of 9, his interest and love of aviation were kindled when he got his first airplane ride in a sister ship to Lindberg’s "Spirit of St. Louis" at Cape May, N.J., in 1929. Leroy attended the University of Virginia (1936-1940) and was a member of Chi Phi Fraternity. He graduated and also completed Marine Officers Training School to become a Second Lieutenant in the USMC Reserve. In fall 1940, he went to work at Wright Aeronautical Corporation in Patterson, N.J., where he met the girl he wanted to marry, Doris Helene Hinchliffe. As luck would have it, he got his orders in January 1941 to report to active duty in the First Marine Division July 5, 1941. Since he wanted to be an aviator, he resigned his commission in the Marine Corps and became a Naval Aviator Cadet and started flight training in Jacksonville, Fla., in May 1941 (a fateful decision). He was commissioned Ensign Dec. 8, 1941, and during the war, he served as Flight Instructor and was assigned to anti-sub patrol squadron VPB-130 in the South Atlantic, Brazil. Toward the end of the war, he married Doris in Patterson, N.J., Feb. 10, 1945. After the war, he returned to Wright Aeronautical as an Engineering Test Pilot. On one of his test flights, he had a dead stick emergency, landing on a golf course covered in snow, with no serious injuries except for a broken thumb. His daughter, Lani, was born in 1945, and his son, Peter, followed in 1949. Leroy continued in aviation throughout his career, working at Douglas Aircraft in Santa Monica and Lockheed. He traveled extensively with these companies, seeing most of South America, Europe, and Asia. He was a member of the QBs (Quiet Birdmen) and SETP (Society of Experimental Test Pilots). In 1976, he and good friend, Jack McGowan, formed Cammacorp, an aircraft management company. The goal was to re-engine and re-certify the DC-8 transport to comply with governmental noise regulations and improve fuel economy. He was successful and proved that the free enterprise system works, as their company re-engined 110 DC-8s. In later years, he was president of The Beach Club in Santa Monica, and a member of Los Angeles Country Club. He played tennis and paddle tennis until his arm gave out, then it was on to golf. He attributes his good health to his wife of 70 years insisting he ate good food and drank good vodka. Leroy was truly a self-made man, served his country, and championed the free enterprise system with his successful aviation company. He was a kind, gentle man with a competitive streak and the people skills to get things done. We should all hope to live to 96 with as full a life with no regrets. Leroy was preceded by his father, Leroy Cooper; mother, Chlorine Goodyear Cooper; and daughter, Lani, and survived by his wife of 70 years, Doris; his brother, Carroll Cooper; his son, Peter; three grandkids, Briana Cooper, Ben Schulte, and Dana Schulte Cooper; and her two children, Maddie and Jack.

In addition to his legal career and his family, Judge Jacob’s passions in life were golf, boating, and growing roses. He began golfing with his father as a young boy, and was instrumental in designing the golf course for the Eastern Shore Yacht and Country Club. His interests married when he adorned his outboard boat with a picture of a golf green, and named it “The 19th Hole.” His wife is a dedicated gardener, and he joined her in that hobby, specializing in growing their roses. Judge Jacob was appreciated by his many friends for his hearty laugh, quick wit, and sharp mind.

He learned the meaning and value of community at an early age, earning Eagle Scout status and later serving as Boy Scout Troop 11 Leader for many who became his lifelong friends. His athletic prowess and passion were reflected in his participation in many sports, his presidency of the Norfolk Sports Club, his tireless support of area and regional professional and school teams and countless hours invested as a volunteer youth coach. He demonstrated the patience of Job as a teacher, coach, and mentor, providing counsel about life, sports, and business and had the ability to carve and completely reassemble a holiday turkey. A quiet Southern gentleman, he had unflappable inner strength and poise. His ability to listen and analyze was cherished by his family, peers, and community. He had three passions: dancing, golf, and the beach. He and Lois were Master Square Dancers. His love of all forms of dance is his legacy that has been passed on to his next three generations. He loved the game of golf. He was a tenacious competitor and student of the game. He enjoyed its intrinsic challenge and camaraderie. He took particular pride in having shot three holes in one and his age numerous times. At the beach especially at the family's 87th Street home, he could always be found fishing, surf casting, pitching horse shoes, body surfing, or playing ping pong with his lifelong friend of over 85 years, Harry Pincus.

Clarence Flippo Hicks ’50 (Law ’52) died peacefully in his sleep Aug. 13, 2015, in Gloucester, Va., at the age of 86. Born Feb. 24, 1929, in Port Royal to Robert and Nell Jones Hicks, Flip was a child of the Depression who walked barefoot on dirt roads to a one-room school house, yet rose to be the president of the Virginia State Bar and did much for his state in a career spanning six decades. After graduating from Caroline County High School, he spent six years at the University of Virginia, completing a B.S. in Commerce (1949) and J.D. (1952). Always quick with a quip or comment, open to anyone visiting his home on the Ware River, he lived an out-sized life of consequence. As Deputy Attorney General, he was instrumental in the adoption of the Maryland and Virginia Potomac River Compact of 1958 and the establishment of the Potomac River Fisheries Commission. As a practicing lawyer working in Gloucester and Richmond, Va., he served as the Chief Council of the Virginia Association of Counties, where he worked on landmark decisions on integration, annexation, school funding, public kindergarten, and the statewide sales tax. Although he argued some of these cases all the way up to the Supreme Court and moved effortlessly through some of the most serious and far-reaching legislation the state had worked on since the Civil War, he identified himself as a “country lawyer.” This was most apparent when he accepted oysters, clams, and fish from local watermen as payment for services rendered when times were tough. He was a lifelong member of Ware Episcopal Church. He served on the board of directors for First Virginia Bank, Saint Paul’s College, Vestry of Ware Episcopal Church, the Rotary Club, the Ruritans, and numerous other civic and professional organizations. His wife of 30 years, Patricia “Patsy” DeHardit Hicks, and his son John Flippo Hicks predeceased him. Patsy was the love of his life. They were fortunate enough to have traveled all over the world together. He took great pride in his children, his grandchildren, and his great-grandson and always instilled the importance of education, love of life and service to others. UVA was near and dear to his heart, forever indebted for the wonderful education it afforded him. Some of his happiest moments were attending football and basketball games. Win or lose, he was a die-hard Wahoo and hosted the best tailgates. His favorite respite was the porch of his beloved home, “Pinewold,” where he lived for 57 years. He enjoyed collecting antiques, especially potty chairs, nautical paintings, and Chinese porcelain. He enjoyed sitting by a roaring fire, with a western on and a faithful pet at his feet. He is survived by his children, Robert Hicks (Nancy Hicks), Patricia Shull (Wesley Shull), and Paula Mooradian (Todd Mooradian); daughter-in-law Paula Williams; grandchildren, Matthew and Michael Hicks, John Shull, Clare Shull Booher, Sam Shull, Jacob Hicks, and Addison and Andie Mooradian; a great grandson, Christopher Booher; and nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Bagpipers, a trumpeter playing taps, a military salute, a cannon shot and renditions of all of the service anthems have become highlights of each service. He loved the University of Virginia and Charlottesville and as a season ticketholder for UVA football for many years. Even after surviving a near fatal cardiac arrest in 2009, he was able to travel to Charlottesville to attend a UVA basketball game almost every year. Bud was a lifelong avid golfer and passed this passion along to his wife, Pat, when their children were grown. They played many of the great courses together in their travels, including two golfing trips to Scotland. (Published in The Daily Journal Aug. 4, 2015)

After serving in the U.S. Army (1956-1958), he worked alongside his brother, F. Douglas French, as Co-Owner of the French Brothers Dairy farming operation. Thereafter, he opened a law office on Lawyers Row, practicing for over 30 years with his partner and friend Kevin Black. He was an active member of the Virginia State Bar for more than 59 years.

Allan Nist ’53 of Bernardsville, N.J., passed away peacefully Feb. 6, 2016, in the company of his family. He was 87. He was born in Missoula, Mont., April 28, 1928. His father, Cecil Nist, was a career army officer, and the family moved from base to base every few years. Allan graduated from Alamo Heights High School and from the University of Virginia in 1953. He played on the UVA lacrosse team that won the championship in 1952, and suffered a broken nose and sternum during the pivotal game. After college he served as executive officer of C Company, Third Armored Division in Fort Knox, Ky. Allan married Joan McGuire of Bronx, N.Y., in 1954, and the couple had three daughters. They moved to Bernardsville in 1959, where they have lived ever since. Allan worked as an Insurance Agent at H.O. Baker in Dover and subsequently at Hurley Insurance in Bedminster. Allan was predeceased by his parents, Cecil and Ellen Nist, and by his daughter, Alayne, who was born with Down syndrome. He is survived by his wife, Joan; two daughters, Alison Chester (Brian) and Leslie Nist; four grandchildren, Scott Zieger, Mallory Zieger, David Sauri, and Kyle Sauri; and three great-grandchildren, Liam, Hunter, and James Zieger. He is also survived by an honorary step-daughter, Ruth Mukasa, who was a loving aid and presence to his daughter Alayne. Allan's generation is known as "the Greatest Generation" for good reason, namely for all the incredible things they accomplished. The world is a radically different place now than when Allan was a child, and ice was brought to the house by a horse-drawn wagon. We teased him for his "Rube Goldberg" contraptions, and for his ability to attach virtually anything to the top of the car, given enough rope. All kidding aside, if you were trapped on a desert island, he was the man you wanted to have with you. He taught his wife and daughters to drive and lived to tell about it. He would give you the shirt off his back, and the rest of what was in his closet as well. He never gave up, no matter what, even if conditions seemed impossible. His kind won't pass this way again. He will be greatly missed. Memorial donations to the Visiting Nurse of the Somerset Hills would be greatly appreciated. We thank them for their wonderful care of Allan.

James Hudson Whiting ’57 (A&S ’52) departed this life Nov. 12, 2015, after making the world a better place. He was 86. His last residence was Westminster Canterbury, Richmond, Va. The seventh of eight children of Helen Hudson Whiting and Edgar Mason Whiting, Jim is survived by his wife, Barbara Thalhimer, and three daughters, Julia Whiting (John), Welby Whiting Fairlie (Duncan) and Sarah Whiting. He is also the step-father of Stanton Thalhimer (Liz) and Barbara Thalhimer Wiltshire (Rex). Jim was the last surviving child of the eight siblings: Meta, Carlyle, Henry, Edgar, Richard, Willy, Jim, and Beverley. Jim was a generous soul, a consummate volunteer, a great dad and the hardest worker we have ever seen. He had a great sense of humor, and an innate ability to get along with anyone. He had a love of old buildings, boxwood, painting, and playing the piano. He will be greatly missed. He was born at Walter Reed Hospital in Washington, D.C., June 14, 1929, and later moved to Winchester, Va., where he attended Handley High School, graduating in 1948. His mother's ability to raise eight children without a father during the Depression instilled in him a frugality that rivaled none. This gift was passed on to his daughters, who fondly recall his maxim of "waste not, want not." This philosophy was revealed to be a wisdom that we couldn't understand as children but are grateful for as adults. Jim developed a talent at fixing up houses while being transferred across the country for his job with Burlington Industries. The art of home improvement combined his penny-wise nature and his love of old buildings. After retirement he devoted much of his time to volunteering with Historic Richmond Foundation, a nonprofit organization devoted to preserving Richmond's unique historic character. He began volunteering at HRF in 1975 and served in numerous positions on the board of trustees and committees. While volunteering with HRF he worked for over 10 years to stabilize and preserve The National Theatre, 1927. He jokingly referred to himself as the janitor of the National, taking on the dirtiest of jobs with great aplomb. He also volunteered his labor and talents at Monumental Church, 1814, a historic property owned by HRF. Nothing made him happier than working on an old building and making it better. He served on the boards of Maymont, Friends of the Public Library, and the Arts Council of Richmond. He was a founding member and served as chair of the Capital Preservation Committee and was the chair of the furnishings committee of the Citizens Advisory Council to the Governor's Mansion. He taught painting at J. Sergeant Reynolds Community College. Jim is survived by his three daughters and five grandchildren, Joseph, Molly, William, Hannah and James. Also step-children Stanton and Barbara, step-grandchildren Claire, Will, and Lee, as well as Luisa Kreis Whiting and Barbara Thalhimer.

In private and in public Julie brought a presence of joy and peace to all she knew. The middle sister of an Air Force/IBM family, Julie was born in 1957 at Travis AFB, Calif., and grew up in various locations, including Albuquerque, N.M., Chelmsford, Mass., Simsbury, Conn., and Endicott, N.Y. Her family finally settled in Oakton, Va., where Julie graduated from Herndon High School in 1975. Julie graduated from the University of Virginia in May 1979. On the 26th of that same month, Julie married Lt. Chris Campbell. She spent the next 20 years living an "Air Force life" in various assignments in Florida, Spain, Alabama, Italy, and finally back to Northern Virginia. During that time, she gave birth to two wonderful sons, David and Kevin. She also found time to be accredited as a CPA in 1987. The family settled in Burke, Va., in 1994 to the present day. Julie continued to raise her two wonderful boys and turned them into men. David graduated from Robinson High School, Clemson University (2007), and became a USMC AV/8 Harrier Pilot. Kevin graduated from Robinson High School, the U.S. Naval Academy (2010), and Advanced Nuclear Power Training. During this time she worked as a CPA for David N. Hainsworth, CPA P C in Fairfax, Va. Her sons married wonderful women, and Julie became a grandmother to Kevin and Kelly's child, Wyatt Edward and David and Deanne's RoseMary Kathleen.

Robert Thomas Wosewick ’80 passed away March 9, 2015, at age 56, with wife Kay (Brubaker) and son Zachary at his side. Bob died of metastatic prostate cancer. Bob was born in Philadelphia, though when people asked where he grew up, Bob invariably replied "I haven't." While not growing up, he lived in Charlottesville, Va., and earned a B.S. in Commerce at UVA; in St. Louis, where he earned an M.B.A. at Washington University and later met Kay; in Boston, where Zak was born; in Shorewood, Wis., for 18 of the past 21 years; and in Modesto, Calif. While living in Modesto, Bob came to realize that Milwaukee was truly "home," and the family returned soon thereafter. Bob's career in marketing research and new product development included employment at Purina, Gillette, and E&J Gallo Winery, and with SC Johnson & Son for more than half of his career. Bob loved his various jobs, but his relationships with fellow employees and other colleagues are what made his work truly meaningful. Self-taught at 12, Bob played guitar and sang in bands from age 14 until his last gig at Summerfest in 2014. His transformation from suit and tie at work to a Les Paul and a mike on stage was delightfully surprising to many people. In late 2010, Bob engaged a new passion and rode nearly 40,000 miles on three Harleys in less than four years. Bob's family life was a bit more subdued but no less joyful. Bob loved snorkeling, biking, and paintballing with Zak, and he delighted in torturing Zak with his "jokes." Bob and Kay treasured their Saturday night dates, missing no more than a handful over nearly 25 years of marriage. They lived a fairytale-like love story in real time. Besides Kay and Zak, Bob is survived by his father, Walter Wosewick; brother, Gerry (Penny), and sister, Nancy (Darrell) Taylor; sister-in-law Suzy (Jon) Sibley; 11 nieces and nephews; many aunts, uncles, and cousins; innumerable friends; and fabulous doctors and staff at the Medical College of Wisconsin (Milwaukee) and UW Hospital and Clinics (Madison). Predeceasing Bob are his mother Joan (Reddington) Wosewick, father- and mother-in-law, Harold and Lorraine Brubaker, and brother-in-law, David Brubaker.
