In memory of Dan Scharfman

In memory of Dan Scharfman

Dan Scharfman, a wonderful colleague and friend, died last night.

My understanding is that there will be an obituary published tomorrow, and that the funeral will be on Wednesday.

I am shocked and grief-stricken, so it’s difficult to say more right now.

To his loved ones, all I can say are some words inspired by the Jewish tradition:

May the Omnipresent console you among the other mourners of Zion, Jerusalem, and the world.

    Deborah — I’m sorry for your and our loss. I can’t recall if I ever met Dan, but I interacted with him a bit on ISF and NTEN’s mailing lists, where he was always very knowledgeable and helpful. I know that he will be missed.

    This is shocking news. A nicer man than Dan you could not hope to meet. He gave us very good advice in my early days in NPT.
