In Memoriam: Laurence F. Gardner

Laurence F. Gardner, 78, passed away August 12, 2012.

A graduate of Dartmouth College, Gardner received his law degree from George Washington University Law School and he was admitted to the NH Bar exam in 1960. He joined the Vermont Bar several years later.

His career started in his hometown of Littleton, where he also served on the school board, as town moderator, and as a director of the Littleton National Bank. He spent a year as district representative for Congressman Jim Cleveland in 1965. Afterward, he joined the law firm Tesreau and Stebbins, which later became Tesreau and Gardner. In 1971, he opened the Gardner Law Office, staying in Hanover for 18 years before moving his practice to Lebanon.

Gardner served on the Professional Conduct Committee for 10 years, as well as on the NH Bar Association Board of Governors. In 1970, he oversaw the adoption of New Hampshire Bar Association Code of Professional Responsibility, a precursor to the current Rules of Professional Conduct.

He is survived by his wife, Claire; his children, Dr. Chirstopher Gardner and Elizabeth Gardner; and six grandchildren.

In honor of our colleague Laurence F. Gardner, the NH Bar Association Board of Governors has donated to the NH Bar Foundation, 2 Pillsbury Street, Suite 300, Concord, NH 03301.
