It is with a heavy heart that I am sharing the news that Dan Abitol, Senior Vice President of Operations, passed away unexpectedly on May 10, 2020. Dan passed quickly from a heart attack, and he did not suffer. I, along with the entire SOLID family, mourn his loss and send his family, our clients and friends our sincere sympathies.
Dan was larger than life, a dear friend and industry leader who made a significant impact on everyone around him personally and professionally. He was a mentor to many and a shining light to anyone who met him. Dan’s passion for delighting clients and his ability to coach team members to achieve greatness has helped build a resilient operations and leadership team at SOLID that will carry on his legacy.
Please join us in celebrating Dan’s life by remembering the many things we loved in him, and by continuing his life’s work: caring for each other and being the best we can be in all we do. Dan’s caring spirit and his love for people, of all abilities, was great. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorial contributions be made to the Dan Abitol Memorial Fund (https://zabsplace.org/dan/) for Friendship Circle or ZABS Place, two organizations that were dear to Dan.
