DANA--William Dale, Jr., of Morristown, NJ, and Livingston, MT, aged 83, died peacefully on February 14, 2013, at his home of 51 years in Morristown, NJ. Born in New York City and raised in Llewellyn Park, NJ, he was the son of William Dale Dana and Margaret Leach Dana. Bill attended The Hotchkiss School, Princeton University, and the Harvard Business School, and served in the United States Army. He married Emma Joy Linen in 1951 and began his investment management career at Lehman Brothers, followed by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund. Since 1976, he was a private investment manager. Bill gave generously of his time and talents, especially in three areas of particular importance to him: education, conservation, and fly fishing. He was President of the Board of The Peck School and a loyal alumnus of Hotchkiss; he was a founding member of the Harding (NJ) Land Trust, a member of the Advisory Board of the Montana Land Reliance, and President of the New Jersey Conservation Foundation; and he was President of the Anglers' Club of New York, President of Parkside Anglers, and a founding member of Brodhead Fly fishers. Bill and Emma Joy traveled the world fly fishing for trout, salmon, and bonefish, including extended trips to their beloved property in Montana. Bill is survived by his wife of 62 years, Emma Joy, and his four sons: Richard, John, Andrew, and Gordon. He also has four devoted grandchildren. A memorial will be held in April.
