In Memoriam: Louis F. Eaton, Jr.

Louis Eaton, Jr. died recently at his home in Cohasset, Mass. He was 91.

Raised in Brockton, Mass., Eaton graduated from Brockton High School in 1935, attended a post-graduate year at Deerfield Academy, and then entered Amherst College, from which he graduated Phi Beta Kappa with a joint-degree in history and economics in 1940.

He entered Harvard Law School in 1941, but left early to enlist in the US Navy, where he received several awards and commendations for his service. After World War II, he returned to law school, graduating shortly thereafter.

Eaton joined both the NH Bar and the MA Bar in 1947; that year he also took a job with Hutchins & Wheeler, the oldest law firm in Boston. He practiced general and estate law until his retirement in 1986.

Active in the Cohasset community, Eaton served as chairman of the advisory committee, the transportation committee, and for 40 years was a designee to the MBTA Advisory Board. He was a member of the Community Fund, Dramatic Club, Golf Club, Historical Society, American Field Service and the Old Goats.

He is survived by wife, Robin; daughters, Elizabeth and Deborah; stepchildren, William and Donna; and grandchildren David and Sarah.

In honor of our colleague Louis F. Eaton, Jr., the NH Bar Association Board of Governors has made a donation to the NH Bar Foundation, 2 Pillsbury Street, Suite 300, Concord, NH 03301.
