William H. Eastburn III, Esquire (1932-2008)
A Lawyer For All Seasons
Bill Eastburn, was a tall, imposing man - his good looks and magnetism made him almost larger than life. A graduate of Trinity College and Penn Law School, he became a top trial lawyer and the managing partner of the law firm of Eastburn & Gray (though only distantly related to its founder). At first, he entered politics but later focused on philanthropy. In 1970 he organized Today, Inc., a substance abuse center for youngsters; in 1991 "Americans for Native Americans" to help impoverished Indian reservations; in 1993 "The Voice of Reason" to reduce firearms violence after having been shot himself in the chest; and in 2006-2007, he led the Bucks-Mont Katrina Hurricane Relief Project. He sponsored many other community activities - and his wife, Connie, was always his helpmate. His good works and spirit live on - and those who knew him will never forget his great charisma or how much he gave back to the rest of us.
