William A. Truslow Death – Obituary: William Auchincloss Truslow, of Cambridge, died December 4, 2021 at Mt. Auburn Hospital, surrounded by close family members. He had coped with Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) since 2018 and had just received a further diagnosis of acute myeloid leukemia. Bill was born March 22, 1936, in Summit, New Jersey, to William Auchincloss Truslow and Frances Ray Truslow.

He attended Browne & Nichols School for one year and then Phillips Exeter Academy for three years, graduating in 1954. Bill graduated from Yale University in 1958 and then served in the Navy for three years as an Officer on the destroyer USS Forrest Sherman. He then attended Harvard Law School and with his new bride, Miriam Kellogg Truslow moved to New York in 1964 where he practiced with the firm of Davis Polk Wardwell Sunderland and Kiendl until 1968. He then returned to Cambridge and joined the Boston firm Hill & Barlow, where at different times he was chairman of the Corporate and the Trust and Estates Departments. His later practice was concentrated in Trusts and Estates and Trusteeships. In 2003, he moved with the entire Hill & Barlow Private Client Group to Ropes & Gray. Bill was active on various boards serving as Chairman of the Center for Plant Conservation, president of the Cambridge Center for Adult Education, overseer of the Cambridge Community Foundation, trustee of the Cambridge Community Foundation, the Julia Child Foundation and the Mount Auburn Cemetery.

He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Mimi; three sons, William III of Cambridge, Hugh of Arlington, and Samuel of San Francisco; seven grandchildren; and his twin brother, Bob of Durham, NH. He was predeceased by a beloved older sister, Jane Davison in 1981. Bill loved his family, fixing things, watercolor painting, spending time at houses in Vermont and Maine, and being aboard his lobster boat, Sweet Pea. He was a member of the Tavern Club in Boston and the Century in New York. Bill was a skilled writer and his legal prose was of such clarity that even laymen could both understand and appreciate it. He had a gift for putting people at ease, even those he had just met, and will be remembered for his cheerful disposition and welcoming smile.
