IN MEMORIAM

1969 Terrance “Terry” Stinnett January 23, 2021. Terry earned his undergraduate B.S. Degree at Stanford University and graduated first in his class, magna cum laude, from Santa Clara Law. He was a member of Phi Alpha Delta and was associate editor of the Santa Clara Law Review. He was listed in Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who in American Law, Who’s Who in the World, Kipling’s Who’s Who in Leading Business Professionals, America’s Registry of Outstanding Professionals, and was Continental Who’s Who Leading Lawyer of the Year in 2011. In 1972, he became one of the named partners of the firm of Goldberg, Stinnett, Meyers & Davis, where he specialized in bankruptcy law and business reorganization. He practiced there for more than 36 years before moving on to become the General Counsel of Fremont Bank, which was founded by his favorite uncle, Morris Hyman. Terry also served on the boards of Project Second Chance (an adult literacy organization) where he was also President, and he also established the “Bessie Hyman Trust” in honor of his grandmother. In addition he had a deep and sincere commitment to Santa Clara Law, where he worked on various committees over the years, including the Law Advisory Board, and also established a scholarship fund for needy and deserving students called “The Stinnett Family Scholarship Fund.” Terry also enjoyed fabulous vacations with his wife, Annette, who would plan them each year, and would memorialize them in monumental photograph albums and diaries. Many wonderful memories will remain with the people he touched with his wry humor, his pervasive teasing, and his generosity. But the people who might miss him the most were those who were fortunate enough to make the cut at Christmastime and receive Terry’s Famous Fruitcake.
