Hart; two sons, Marc D. (Heather) and her daughter, Isabella Wallace, of Tucson, AZ, and Adam M.

Somehow I missed the announcement, gmail has a way of sending Shaker59 stuff to spam.

Dan was a good personal and professional friend.  We served together for many years on the Ohio State Bar Associoation Labor and Emplyment Law Section Board of Governors.  Dan and I used each other as sounding boards when we ran into an ususual labor or employment problem.  Dan was an exceptional lawyer and a good friend.  I will miss him.
