In Memoriam: Alexander J. Kalinski
Alexander Kalinski, 81, died recently at the Catholic Medical Center.
Born in Manchester, Kalinski attended local schools, graduating from St. Joseph High School, and attended St. Anselm College, from which he graduated in 1952. He later attended Boston College Law School and earned his law degree in 1955.
He began his legal career as an Assistant US Attorney and then as an assistant attorney general for the state of New Hampshire. After leaving the public sector, he opened a law office with Maurice Bois and W. Jean Laflamme, where he practiced until 1970 when he was appointed to the NH Public Utilities Commission by Gov. Walter Peterson. By 1979, he had returned to private practice and continued to practice until very recently.
Kalinski was active in his church, serving as communicant of St. Elizabeth Seton Church in Bedford and as former communicant of St. Hedwig Church, where he was a lifetime honorary member of the St. Joseph Society.
He is survived by his wife, Margaret; daughter, Beth; three sons, Daniel, James, and David; and five grandchildren, Holly, Meredith, Brendan, Ryan, and Alexandra.
In honor of our colleague Alexander J. Kalinski, the NH Bar Association Board of Governors has made a donation to the NH Bar Foundation, 2 Pillsbury Street, Suite 300, Concord, NH 03301.
