John Law

John Albert Law, 50, of Kensington, died Tuesday, Dec. 7 at his home “Evergreen” of heart failure.   Born Aug. 24, 1954 in Washington, D.C., he was the son of Boo Law of Bethesda and the late Melvin J. Law.   He grew up in Kensington and Bethesda and attended Hargrave Military Academy in Virginia, Florida Central, and Croyden Hall in New Jersey. He graduated from Walt Whitman High School, where he played drums in the band, in 1973.

He was also the proud uncle of Laura, Katie, Meredith, Julia, and Isaac Hale and Lauren Pedersen.
