Lawrence Sperling died peacefully in the warmth of his home in Ann Arbor, Michigan at the age of 86, on August 3, 2018, surrounded by all of his children. He made significant commitments time-wise and financially to support the organizations that were founded or co-founded by his wife Doris, including the Ann Arbor Young People's Theatre and the Family Learning Institute (FLI) which focuses on supportive, one-on-one tutoring for children who had fallen two grades or more behind in their reading.
He was also a long and passionate supporter of the Mosaic Youth Theatre of Detroit, which was founded and run by his son Rick for over 25 years. In that light, the family asks that in lieu of flowers or other gifts to our family, that contributions go to the Mosaic Youth Theatre of Detroit.

He had a distinguished legal career. His legal victories included 1) the first federal court of appeals case finding a constitutional right under the Equal Protection Clause for girls to be able to play on boys athletic teams (Morris v. State Board of Education), 2) the first federal case creating a right for public high school students to not be expelled for their expression and speech without due process (Vought v. Van Buren Public Schools) and 3) the first case to prevent high school athletes in Ohio from being denied participation in varsity athletics due to disability.
"We're deeply saddened by the loss of our dear friend and colleague," says, Ed Pear, Attorney at Pear, Sperling, Eggan & Daniels, P.C.
