Sawyer, Arleigh

Oct. 13, 1953 — Aug. 19, 2013

Arleigh Curtis Sawyer Jr. passed away on Aug. 19, 2013, after a brief illness. He was born Oct. 13 1953, in Springfield, Mass.

In 1975, he graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in English and graduated at the top of his class from Hastings College of the Law in 1981. He worked as a civil litigation attorney for 32 years and his practice areas included business disputes, real estate, personal injury, class actions, medical malpractice, insurance bad faith, admiralty, wrongful termination and appeals. Since 1998, Curt practiced environmental law with Miller, Axline & Sawyer in Sacramento.

His prior career achievements include serving on the Pleasant Hill Planning Commission 1988-1991, the San Francisco Superior Court Settlement Conference Panel 1985-1995, Northern District of California Arbitration Panel 1988-1995, Judge Pro Tem Mount Diablo Judical District, Small Claims Judge 1989-1992, and as an Instructor at San Francisco Law School 1987-1990.

During his life, Curt enjoyed traveling and cooking. He was an avid reader, passionate stock-market follower, fantasy-basketball junkie and lover of Lake Tahoe. Curt will forever be remembered as a practical joker who left everyone he met with a smile on their face. His sense of humor was legendary. He was admired for his intellect, big heart and generous spirit. Curt was completely devoted to his family and his greatest pride and joy were his two sons.

He is survived by his wife of 26 years, Jeannette Lejardi, sons Christopher and Brenden, mother Antoinette Sawyer, brother Roland (Luisana) Sawyer, niece Kelsey Sawyer, and nephew Daniel Sawyer. His father, Arleigh Sawyer, predeceased him.

At Curt’s request, there will not be a service. His family is planning a celebration of his life. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Yolo CASA at 724 Main St., Suite 101, Woodland, CA 95695 or online at www.yolocasa.org , or other charity of choice.
