In Memory

Alan Lee Danzis passed away Dec. 29, 2022, in White Plains, N.Y. He was born May 28, 1941, in Elizabeth, N.J., to Leon “Leo” Danzis and Ruth (Wright) Danzis and was an only child. Alan grew up in Elizabeth, N.J., and was a graduate of the Pingry School, which he attended with Michael Taranto and Jerry Dempsey, who would be his lifelong best friends. He attained a perfect score on his math SATs and received his bachelor’s from Amherst College, where he majored in mathematics and joined Phi Psi. He earned his master’s from MIT. He was married to Hope Wislosky Danzis for 47 years.

Alan is survived by his wife, Hope; sons Brian Lee (and his wife, Stacie) and Alan Michael (and his wife, Amy); granddaughters Taylor, Emerson, Addison and Margaret; grandson Luke; and his dog, Levi. Besides a love for his family, Alan had a lifelong passion for classical music and was active with the New Jersey Symphony, eventually serving on the board. He was enormously proud of his more than 30-year career with IBM. He was also president of Danzis Associates.
