It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Dana W. Tobin on Friday, August 29th. Dana was a beloved friend, mentor, benefactor and inspiration to countless friends and causes. He was determined to make the world a better place, sharing his passion for social responsibility and knowledge of nature and travel with anyone interested enough to ask. Perhaps described as "Quirky," Dana endeared himself to everyone he met and never failed to think of others first. He will be deeply missed by his many, particularly Weaver's Way Co-op, The Earth and Environmental Sciences (EES) Department at the University of Pennsylvania, Face to Face Community Center in Germantown, and The Schuylkill Valley Nature Center, Nature Conservancy. His loss is also felt by his extended family of international students and HOSTS for HOSPITALS guests whom he befriended and over the years, now included in his "e-mail circle." Dana's "family," Cathy, Joe, Jasmine, Abby, and Jordan (Davis/Fafara) will miss and remember him profoundly as a part of our lives that is irreplaceable. Donations in his memory may be made to Food Moxie.
