Daniel E. Hanley
Resident of Saratoga
Daniel E. Hanley, 68, passed away on September 14, 2013, surrounded by his loving family and friends.
Dan, often referred to as "Buzz" in his family, was born at Stanford Hospital to Lydon and Annette Hanley on August 25, 1945, and was the seventh of ten children in a large Irish Catholic family. His large family was well known in the local area, owning and operating several grocery stores with the Duca family in Palo Alto and Menlo Park. He worked in one of the stores as a teenager, and eventually managed the company's real estate holdings for the families.
He graduated from Bellarmine College Preparatory, and went on to earn several degrees (B.S., J.D. and M.B.A.) from Santa Clara University, graduating Cum Laude from its law school in 1974. Between schooling Dan also served four years in the U.S. Marine Corps. He passed the State Bar in 1974 and practiced law in the San Jose area for thirty-nine years, most of it as a sole practitioner.
He devoted much of his time to his family, but he also had many hobbies and interests, including golf, music, movies, history, sports, and exercising. He was always giving, whether to charity or to the blood bank (82 pints of blood). Some of his greatest gifts included his warm manner and wonderful sense of humor. Everyone loved him.
After over forty years of marriage, Dan departs his loving wife, Judi. He is also survived by his two sons, Brian and Sean, and his siblings Alice, Pat, Tony, Leo, Linda, Debbie, and TT. He is preceded in death by his parents and his brothers, Johnny and Donald.
