Greensfelder mourns the loss of longtime colleague Sheldon Stock

November 16, 2021

It is with sadness that Greensfelder announces the passing of longtime colleague and friend Sheldon K. Stock, who passed away Saturday, November 13, 2021, at age 80.

Mr. Stock was an attorney in Greensfelder’s Business Services group and based in the St. Louis office. His career was wide-ranging and spanned the U.S. and the globe. He joined the firm in 1986, and as a corporate attorney, he worked on transactions around the world while also representing businesses and families close to home. He had extensive experience in communications law, municipal entities, commercial financing and estate planning and was highly renowned in each of those areas.

“In addition to being an excellent attorney, Sheldon was a renowned chef, wine connoisseur and, above all, an absolutely delightful person,” Greensfelder President and CEO Kevin T. McLaughlin said. “He was a great friend to so many at the firm, and you did not leave a conversation with Sheldon without learning something interesting.  He will be missed.”

Throughout his legal career, Mr. Stock held prominent roles on a state and national scale – the most recent of which was his reappointment this year by the Missouri Supreme Court to continue service as a disciplinary hearing officer. His civic involvement in the St. Louis community over the years included serving on the boards of the St. Louis Science Center, the Sheldon Arts Foundation, the St. Louis Art Fair, and Laumeier Sculpture Park, to name just a few. In the 1960s, he was a captain in the U.S. Marine Corps, and he earned his J.D. from Washington University School of Law in 1964.
