In memory of
Lockhart, Andrew J. Andrew Jasperson Lockhart of Richmond, Virginia, London, England, and Greenwich, Connecticut, died on September 30, 2016. Andrew passed peacefully surrounded by his family at his home in Richmond, Virginia, after a hard-fought battle with a virulent cancer called Cholangiocarcinoma. Andrew was born on July 13, 1977, in Boston, Massachusetts to H. Eugene and Terry J. Lockhart, currently of Keswick, Virginia, and spent his formative years in Boston, MA, London, England, and Greenwich, CT. Andrew attended Greenwich Country Day School and graduated from Eton College in Windsor, England and Choate-Rosemary Hall School in Wallingford, CT. Andrew graduated from the University of Virginia (B.S. in Economics in 2004) and from the University of Virginia School of Law in 2010. Andrew is survived by his beloved wife, Ashley Parke Lockhart, and his two daughters, Maclaren Page Lockhart and Cecily Boyd Lockhart. He is also survived by his parents, H. Eugene and Terry J. Lockhart of Keswick, VA, Nantucket, MA, and Palm Beach, FL, and by three sisters; Julia Lockhart Simon (David) of Denver, CO, Victoria Lockhart Katz (Jerome) of Birmingham, AL, and Charlotte Lockhart Margulies (Jeffrey) of Denver, CO. Andrew and Ashley were married in September 2010. They soon moved to New York where Andrew became an Associate with Clifford Chance LLP, specializing in international transportation and development projects. Andrew finished his all-too-short law career as an Associate with Hunton & Williams LLP in their Richmond and London offices, permanently moving to London in 2015, where he specialized in international energy, infrastructure, and project development law. Andrew's keen intellect, warm and engaging demeanor, and compassionate outlook were bright lights to the people who knew him. Andrew deeply loved his wife and daughters. He spent time relaxing by reading, participating in all forms of country pursuits, and was particularly interested in studying the mysteries of the earth and horizons beyond. Music was an important part of Andrew's life as he was a member of the Eton College Chapel Choir and the University of Virginia Glee Club. He was an avid fan of all UVA sports teams, cheering through all their triumphs and losses. Andrew's family would like to thank the hospital staff of Bon Secours St. Mary's Hospital in Richmond for their creative, comforting, kind, and faith-based care over the last weeks of his life. Their extraordinary efforts made Andrew's last wish a reality: to participate in the birth of his newborn daughter, Cecily, and to baptize her. In lieu of flowers, Andrew's family has established the Andrew J. Lockhart Research Fellowship at the Focused Ultrasound Foundation in Charlottesville, Virginia, in the hopes that research can contribute to a cure for solid form cancers. Donations can be mailed to The Focused Ultrasound Foundation, 1230 Cedars Court, Suite 206, Charlottesville, Virginia 22903. The ceremony celebrating Andrew's rich life will be held at Grace Episcopal Church in Keswick, Virginia, on October 21, 2016, at 3:00 p.m., with a reception to follow at Oak Hill Farm, 4125 Louisa Road, Keswick; the home of Andrew's parents.
