San Francisco Chronicle (Sunday) - - LIFETRIBUTES -

July 16, 1922 - Au­gust 29, 2018

Re­tired United States District Court Judge Sa­muel Conti, Long­est-Serv­ing in the North­ern District His­tory, dies at 96. Judge Conti is sur­vived by his wife of 66 years, three chil­dren and their spouses, two grand­chil­dren and his sis­ter. He had a life well lived, was greatly loved, and will be re­mem­bered al­ways. He was an in­cred­i­bly ac­com­plished man. His fam­ily feels the fol­low­ing quote from Chief Judge Phyl­lis J. Hamil­ton, spo­ken at his re­tire­ment, aptly de­scribes his last­ing con­tri­bu­tion to not only the ju­di­cial sys­tem, but also the world at large:

“Few judges in the his­tory of the United States Courts can match Judge Conti for the breadth and depth of his con­tri­bu­tion to the fair and ef­fi­cient ad­min­is­tra­tion of jus­tice. He has set the bar high for all those who fol­low him and he will be revered and em­u­lated by judges for decades to come. Speak­ing for all of his col­leagues on this court, I can say that his re­tire­ment is a mo­men­tous tran­si­tion. We thank him for his long and dis­tin­guished ser­vice to the fed­eral courts in gen­eral and the North­ern District in par­tic­u­lar. He will be greatly missed.”
