STURBRIDGE — Daniel L. Malone, 46, died at his home in Sturbridge, on Monday, June 27, 2011. He was the son of Patricia and Thomas Malone of Andover.
Dan grew up in Andover. He graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder and later received his Juris Doctorate from Boston University, where he was the J. Paul Liacos Scholar and a member of the Law Review.
Dan became an accomplished Intellectual Property attorney, specializing in pharmaceutical patent litigation. He was a partner at Jones Day in New York. His fellow attorneys there noted his love of the law, his devotion to his colleagues and clients, and his keen intellect.
Dan will also be remembered for his great heart, sharp wit and antic sense of humor. He enjoyed zinging the opposition and ribbing his colleagues and friends. To his niece and nephews, he was a larger than life figure. He delighted in spending time with them and spoiled them at every opportunity. They adored him and will sorely miss him, as will all of his family and friends.
Dan is survived by his parents; his brother, Tom Malone and his wife Ji Su He of Fremont, Calif.; his sister, Maura Malone and her husband Brian Callaghan of Falls Church, Va.; his sister, Kathleen Malone and her husband George Hebert of Andover; his niece, Elizabeth Callaghan, and his nephews, Matthew and Jack Hebert, and Chris Callaghan.
