We mourn the passing of our friend and fellow board member Daniel Shure, who passed away recently at the age of 58. Dan was a long-time and well-loved Croton resident, known for his affable personality, wit, and good humor.

He graduated from Utica College and worked for many years at the City University of New York, most recently as Manager of Creative and Web Services. Earlier in his career he worked in public relations at Lehman College, Yeshiva University and Hunter College.

He was a Board Member of the Croton Arboretum and of the Friends of the Old Croton Aqueduct and an active supporter of the Croton Community Garden, the Croton-Cortlandt Food Pantry as well as other civic organizations. Dan enjoyed biking, camping, photography and walking his beloved dog, RJ.

Born in Newark, New Jersey to the late Augusta and Jack Shure, he is survived by his sister, Abigail Shure of Belleville, New Jersey and numerous cousins and dear friends.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in Dan’s memory may be made to: Friends of the Old Croton Aqueduct, Inc., 15 Walnut Street, Dobbs Ferry, NY 10522.
