It is with great sadness that I post about the death of my friend, Ramsay Slugg. Our attendance at The Ohio State University College of Law overlapped with Ramsay graduating one year before me. After being out-of-touch for many years, we reconnected in the late 1990's when we realized we both ended up in Texas working in the estate planning area. Since then, we had many interactions including most recently when he spoke for our Estate Planning & Community Property Law Journal Seminar in February on Practical Planning for Art and Collectibles.
Here is a brief obituary provided by ACTEC:
It is with great sadness that we share the death of ACTEC Fellow Ramsay H. Slugg, who passed away August 2.
Ramsay began his career specializing in corporate, securities and tax law at the firm Gandy, Michener, Swindle, Whitaker & Pratt, P.C. in Fort Worth, Texas. Most recently, he served as Managing Director in the National Wealth Strategies group within the Chief Investment Office and as the national head of art planning for the Bank of America Private Bank Art Services Group in Fort Worth for 14 years.
Ramsay was elected to the College in 2018 as a Fiduciary Counsel Fellow and served as a frequent committee and program speaker at College’s national meetings since that time. He joined the Charitable Planning and Exempt Organizations Committee in March 2021, as his Committee colleagues eagerly anticipated his participation.
In addition to being a respected member of the College, Ramsay held leadership positions in the American Bar Association and the local Texas Bar.
The College joins Texas Fellows in mourning Ramsay’s loss. His funeral will be held Saturday, August 14, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. Central at St. Andrew’s Anglican Church in Fort Worth, Texas. Further information, including his obituary, is available online.
I will miss Ramsay and my thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
