Dear W&L Law School Alumni:
We are following up on our message from last week about the passing of former dean Roy Steinheimer at age 98. Many of you have asked about memorial services and other arrangements. We have learned from the family that it was Dean Steinheimer’s wish that there be no funeral or memorial service.
However, we are planning a tribute during our upcoming Alumni Weekend, April 17-19, in Lexington. More details will follow as they become available.
In the meantime, you can read more about his remarkable life and legacy in the press release on the University website. We have also posted some photos of the dean from our archives on our Facebook page. Feel free to share your memories of Dean Steinheimer there in the comments area.
