He came to Princeton from Shaker Heights High School, where he played varsity golf, participated in student government, and was a member of the Pre-Medical Society.
At Princeton Dan played freshman golf and drew cartoons for The Daily Princetonian. He majored in chemistry and was a member of Elm Club. He roomed with Paul Levy. During senior year, Dan was awarded the Milbank Prize given annually to the University’s ranking scholar, was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, and was our valedictorian.
Dan graduated from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in 1965. In 1970 he earned a degree in psychiatry from University Hospitals Cleveland. He spent the next two years in the Air Force helping soldiers who suffered injuries while in the line of duty, eventually achieving the rank of major.
Dan was discharged in 1972 and went on to become director of the department of psychiatry at St. Luke’s Hospital, where he met the love of his life, Dr. Carolee K. Lesyk. They had an instant and special bond, which led to their marriage in 1979. Dan would spend the rest of his days working to help those in need, most recently at Murtis Taylor Human Services.
Dan is survived by Carolee; their son, Alex; and his sister, Nancy. The class sends our deepest sympathies to the family.
