An Augusta man who fought to legally change his name to match his gender identity recently died after complications from surgery, officials said Tuesday.
Rowan Feldhaus was 25.
Feldhaus had a hysterectomy, WRDW-TV reported, and a few days later went into septic shock and lost oxygen to his brain.
Feldhaus was initially denied a request for a name change in July 2016, but the Georgia Court of Appeals in January unanimously overruled the state court judge’s ruling. AJC
