I'm so sorry to hear this news. Dan and I had a mutual friend that introduced us years ago when he was teaching in Emerson. I have great memories of the kind and fun-loving guy he was. He even recruited me to teach his Flag Twirlers a few dance routines for their football half-time shows. I live in North Carolina now, so sadly I will not be able to attend his services. My heartfelt condolences.

Dear Robyn, so sorry for your loss. memories of Dan only include good times. I remember how much fun he was to be around. occasionally we’d have the pleasure of him crashing our birthday dinners at Hackensack, he always added to the party. My heart is always with you. rest in peace Dan

I had Mr. Ludovici at the Westwood Middle school (7th/8th grade). Was sad to see him leave to go to Emerson HS when I was in 8th grade. He was one of the few teachers that had a positive impact on me... Now I know he "cared" and was passionate about teaching us. Wonderful teacher.
