~~Andrew R. Gladin. 42, of Chatham Township, NJ, died unexpectedly on August 30, 2016.
He will be deeply missed by all who were fortunate enough to know him. He is survived by his beloved and devoted wife, Denise E. Rocca; his two adored sons, Michael and Daniel; his parents, Andrew and Alexandra Gladin; his parents-in-law, Vincent and Patricia Rocca, sister-in-law, Michele Kennedy, her husband, Matt, and nephew and niece, James and Annie; and many extended family members, friends, and colleagues.
Born in Bucharest, Romania, Andy and his parents came to the United States in 1984, first settling in San Antonio, TX. He then lived in Little Rock, AR before attending Georgetown University, where he graduated Magna cum Laude with a B.S.F.S. in 1995. He received his law degree in 2000 from the University of Virginia School of Law, where he was Technology Editor for the Virginia Law Review and was inducted into the Order of the Coif.
Following graduation from law school, Andy joined Sullivan & Cromwell LLP in New York, where he became a partner on January 1, 2009. Andy was a leader of the Firm’s bank capital markets and regulatory practices, representing most of the country’s major financial institutions and their underwriters in capital-raising transactions. As bank capital and liquidity and related regulation became a critical focus for the banking and regulatory communities, Andy had become one of the country’s foremost authorities on capital and liquidity regulation, including through his representation of individual banks and The Clearing House Association, the principal trade organization for major U.S. and international banks. He was a recognized leader of the Bar in his areas of practice, a go-to lawyer for clients and a wonderful mentor to junior lawyers.
Andy was an unparalleled husband and father, and a gracious, thoughtful and caring individual who was invariably cheerful and upbeat and loved nothing more than his family and his work.
Andy will be remembered by all, not just for his personal and professional accomplishments, but for his intelligence, integrity, generosity, caring spirit, humility, and quiet, clever sense of humor.
Visitation will be held at Wm. A. Bradley & Son Funeral Home, 345 Main St. in Chatham on Saturday, September 10th from 2 to 7pm. Private interment will be held in Little Rock, Arkansas.
In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that contributions be made to any blood donation agency, such as the Red Cross.
