Gallivan, White & Boyd, P.A. is saddened to announce that longtime shareholder and friend Arthur L. Howson, Jr. passed away on Sunday, January 27, 2013. Art practiced law for 36 years while spending 31 of those years with GWB. Art focused his practice on corporate and business, commercial real estate, and banking and financial transactions. He was listed as one of the Best Lawyers in America for Real Estate law and ranked in Chambers USA Leading Lawyers for Business. Art was recently the recipient of the Greenville County Bar’s prestigious Tommy Thomason Award. Art was also dedicated to his family, friends, and the community. He served on the boards of Greenville Chorale and Greenville Friends of the Zoo as well as president of the board of directors for Senior Action and Bank Greenville.
Shareholder Stuart Mauney very eloquently states how all of us at GWB feel, “Art, I will miss your smile and good nature. So many times I sought your counsel and you never failed to share with me what you thought was fair and what was best for our law firm. We will miss that wisdom. Well done, good and faithful servant.” Please keep Art’s wife Anne, their children, and their family in your thoughts and prayers.
“May God rest his soul and bless his family with a peace that brings them an understanding of His love for Art and them.” – Mills Gallivan
