With Sorrow We Announce the Passing of John E. Gangstad
It is with sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of John E. Gangstad, a firm partner, on November 22, 2019. John was 71 years old when he passed away.
John’s legal career spanned more than four decades during which he practiced as an oil and gas attorney with Turner Hitchins and in corporate law with Brown McCarroll before joining Bickerstaff, where he worked in corporate law for the last 18 years.
In addition to his law practice, John was a leader in the community. In 1987, he co-founded Foundation for the Homeless, a non-profit that works to alleviate homelessness in the Austin community, and served continuously on the organization’s board of directors.
The firm’s thoughts are with the entire Gangstad family during this most difficult time. Our thoughts are also with John’s friends and colleagues who worked with and benefitted from his knowledge, experience, and dedication to the legal profession and causes dear to his heart.
A service will be held on Tuesday, November 26, 2019 at 2:00 pm at Westlake Hills Presbyterian Church. For more information, please visit the Caring Bridge site set up by John’s family.
