Daniel (Dan/Danny/Dad/Poppa) died peacefully on Wednesday, December 14th in his Farmington Hills home, surrounded by his beloved family. Daniel was born in 1929 in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada to loving parents Max and Leah. In 1935, the family moved Daniel, along with his older sister and younger brother, to Detroit for a fresh start due to The Great Depression and challenging family matters. In Detroit, his parents struggled to make ends meet, like so many other families. As a young child, he remembered his parents skipping meals to ensure he and his siblings had enough food to eat. Daniel was a happy young man who made friends easily. He loved comic books and movies, with a particular passion for science fiction. He was a gifted violinist, attending Interlochen Camp on various occasions.

When WWII ensued and the economy began its recovery, Daniel’s father started his career in construction. Dan helped any way a young son could, even driving the pickup truck at age 13. He was born with an old soul, understanding things most could not comprehend. Daniel built his first home at the age of 18 with money he had saved. He often guided his father, who was susceptible to being taken advantage of, by the time he was 20. Daniel purchased his first Commerce Township property, out in the country, in the late 1940's/early 1950's, with a dream that has today evolved into 14 to 15 Mile/Haggerty Rd. developments. His commitment towards financial security for his family pushed him to work 7 days a week. Many hardships transpired, but his unwavering drive to succeed propelled him to achieve his goals. He often said his office was his ‘country club’, and he took care of his home and business up until five months prior to his passing.

Daniel was always compassionate, sincere and honest to those he encountered, treating everyone with respect and kindness. He gave generously throughout his life, truly never expecting anything in return. He practiced complete forgiveness and true unconditional love for those around him. A lifelong member of Shaarey Zedek, Daniel was charitable to many organizations, giving annually to The Jewish Federation and various other worthy causes.

Of his 93 years, Dan's greatest achievement and pride was his family. He had a special and personal relationship with every one of his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He strived to support everyone with whatever they needed. However, he loved his wife Helene the most, with every ounce of his being. They experienced world travels to every continent (except Antarctica), countless evenings at the theater and orchestra, and a love for dancing everywhere they went throughout their 76 wonderful years together. They relished good food, fine wine and being surrounded by their family.

A devoted son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend, Daniel had a beautiful passion for life. He possessed the ability to lead with a gentle soul and serve as a positive example to everyone he knew. His legacy will live on in the hearts and minds of all of the lives he touched.
