Stuart A. McKeever, 83

After the U.S. Supreme Court’s Gideon v. Wainwright ruling in 1963 required states to provide attorneys to criminal defendants unable to afford them, Stuart was recruited for a one-year special assignment on behalf of the New York state Attorney General to implement the mandate.

For over 40 years in private practice, he built a family-centered law practice specializing in litigation, trusts, estates, and real estate – first in Port Chester and later in Westport.

Stuart enjoyed writing and research and he was the author of three books: “The President’s Private Eye: The Journey of Detective Tony U. from NYPD to the Nixon White House (with Tony Ulasewicz),” “Professor Galindez: Disappearing from Earth.” and a novel, “Becoming Joey Fizz.”

Stuart loved the poetry of Yeats, the music of Stan Kenton and Count Basie, and the game of golf. He also felt drawn to the Rocky Mountains – returning throughout his life, whether it was to camp in Banff’s backcountry with friends, ride horses with his sons in Utah, or float and fish the rivers and streams of Montana on his own or with family.
