Special Events

I had the pleasure of creating “Honor” in loving memory and honor of my father, John Joseph Sirica.

Dad presided over the Watergate case, and was a man of unwavering integrity on and off the bench.

On December 4, 2018, part of my family and I had the privilege of presenting and donating “Honor” to The United States District Court in Washington, D.C. where our father actively served as a federal judge/chief judge from 1957 to 1977, and a senior judge until he passed away in 1992.

“Honor” is now hanging outside of his former chambers at the U.S. District Court, and we are thankful to Chief Judge Beryl Howell and the courthouse for accepting this gift as a tribute to our dad.
