In Loving Memory of Dan Gorham

With great sadness — but also with a great lifelong ratio of laughs to tears — we announce our beloved husband, father, Baba, brother, friend, business partner, colleague, boss and big dude Daniel Bradford Gorham has departed this world. After beating cancer twice and completing a stem-cell transplant in the last several years, an unrelated, one-in-a-million illness, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD), which came on devastatingly quickly over the last month, culminated in his passing at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City on August 19, 2021.

Dan lived life to its fullest, and after one final family hangout that included breaking the hospital’s policy on visitors and alcohol, died painlessly and peacefully in his sleep, holding hands and snoring loudly until the very end with his beloved wife of 34 years, Michela.

His family, including his wife Michela, children Caitlin (and her husband Robert), Caroline, Spencer (and his fiancée Annie), grandchildren Nate, Grace, Nolan, and Garrett, and sisters Janice, Suzanne, and Pat (and her husband Rob) are incredibly blessed by the support they continue to receive from friends near and far.

Thank you!
