To the Editor:

The State Bar of Georgia extends condolences to the family, colleagues and many friends of longtime Augusta attorney John Fleming, whose passing May 17 at the age of 90 has left us all saddened.

Admitted to the Georgia Bar in 1958, Mr. Fleming was engaged in private practice with the firm of Nicholson & Fleming in Augusta. He served the public in a number of organizations and was a past president of the Richmond County Board of Education. He also served his country as a decorated Army veteran of the Korean Conflict, receiving the Purple Heart.

John Fleming will be missed and fondly remembered by Georgia’s legal community. We appreciate his service and the many contributions he made to the public and justice system during his career.
