Notes for Albert Frederick III LILLEY
Albert Frederick Lilley, III, died in his home surrounded by family on April 17, 2008 in Chapel Hill.
Mr. Lilley was born on December 21, 1932 in Harrisburg, PA, the son of Frederick Anthony Lilley and Jane Sander Lilley Ingham. After Woodrow Wilson High School in Washington, DC, he received his BA in 1954 from Bowdoin College, majoring in Government and serving as President of DKE fraternity. He remained involved with Bowdoin for the rest of his life. Al served as a 1st Lieutenant in the U.S. Army, with the 4th Armored Division. In 1959 he received his LL.B. and J.D. from the University of Virginia Law School where he was Articles Editor of the Virginia Law Review. He joined the law firm of Milbank, Tweed, Hadley and McCloy in New York City, where he spent his entire career.
Possessing a deeply held belief in the importance of education, Al served on the Board of Education of a Regional High School in Allendale, NJ. For Bowdoin he was an Alumni Fund Chairman, Alumni Council President and a Board of Overseers member. He established the Lilley Family Fund in 1993 to enhance the academic program by supporting the scholarly research of faculty members. For Virginia Law School he served on the Alumni Council and as the Alumni Fund class manager. Health care was another deep interest. He dedicated significant time and energy to the Board of Trustees of the Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, NJ, on which he served for 12 years, ultimately as President. He was a Director of the Valley Care Corp. and of Valley Home and Community Health Care, Inc.
His life's joy was his association with his partners and mentoring young associates in his 36 year career as a corporate partner at the Milbank firm where he specialized in corporate governance, public utility finance, securities regulation, public and private offerings, and mergers and acquisitions. He found excitement, frustration and fascination leading major deals, such as the negotiations to sell a majority interest in Rockefeller Group, Inc., owners of Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall, and the RCA Building, to Mitsubishi Estate Co. and there was nothing like a hostile take over to get his blood going! Representing the Canadian government and Air Canada afforded him many satisfying associations. Al served as a member of the U.S. Canadian Law Project Advisory Board and was a Life Member of the American Law Institute.
Al and Judi retired to Chapel Hill in 1997, where he continued his community service as President of the Chapel Hill Rotary, President of the Board of Trustees of the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Arts Center, and as a Board member of the West Triangle United Nations Association.
Topping his list of passions were his wife, Judi; his three children, their spouses and his beloved grandchildren; Kirk and Shawn Carter Lilley and their daughters, Casey and Cameron of Seattle, WA, Kristin and John Chapman and their sons, Zachary, Brody and Kyle of Raleigh; Alex and Renee Bixby Lilley and their son, Owen of Maynard, MA; as well as his brother and his sister-in law, John and Patty Ingham of Cumberland, ME; Judi's sister and brother-in-law, Joan and Jack Barnard of Orleans, MA; and his 99 year old mother-in-law, Helen Pennock of Haverford, PA.
But skiing and exercise ran a close second, along with the love of his summer home in Canada, his adopted love of all things "Carolina" and the intellectual stimulation from friends in Chapel Hill. Respect for others who worked hard to be the best they could be was his hallmark.
A celebration of his life will be held at the Carolina Club at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 3, 2008.
