Daniel Elmore Silverman

April 20, 1985June 29, 2018

Daniel Elmore Silverman passed away peacefully on June 29, 2018, leaving behind those lucky enough to know him during his 33 years.

Daniel lived a life of great passion. He was a lover of family, friends, gardening, the pool, the North Carolina Tarheels, and his adopted hometown of Atlanta. A great storyteller and host, Daniel captivated his many friends and family members with hilarious observations of his daily life and with stories from his childhood in Lee County, North Carolina. A 2007 graduate of The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Daniel was never known to miss a UNC basketball game.

From a young age, it was clear Daniel had a keen interest in finance and, following college, he pursued his professional passions with as much dedication as his personal ones. Daniel worked at Alvarez & Marsal, Morgan Joseph and most recently at nThrive, where he served as Vice President of Corporate Development and Technology Operations.

A loving and energetic man, Daniel had a large and diverse group of friends of all ages and from all walks of life. An avid gardener, Daniel was often seen spreading mulch, planting bushes and taking care of countless succulents around the house. Armed with a good book, a float and music, Daniel was often hosting friends from the comforts of his own pool, a major selling point when he and Shelly purchased their dream home in late 2017. Daniel was also known to explore Atlanta, spending countless hours with friends walking the Beltline, at Ponce City Market and at his favorite restaurant, El Potro.

He was deeply sentimental and devoted to his family and friends, especially his wife, Shelly. He is survived by his loving wife, Shelly Anne Silverman; parents, Ellen Marie Silverman and Jon Silverman; brother, Michael Silverman; Grandmother, Joyce Silverman and in-laws, Sheila and Charles Lloyd; and many beloved aunts, uncles, and cousins across the country. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Evelyn and Elmore Glaser.

His family, friends, and all of the lives he touched will remember his smile, kind words, funny stories, and unbounded enthusiasm for life. A man of firmly held beliefs, Daniel cherished individual rights and freedom of expression. He was a monthly supporter of the American Civil Liberties Union. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the ACLU, 125 Broad Street, 18th Floor, New York, NY 10004 or UNC Chapel Hill, Kenan Flagler School of Business, P.O.

Daniel and I shared memories growing up together that will last a lifetime. Whether it be going to the movies, PlayStation tournaments, dinner around his family’s table, basketball games in the driveway, torturing Michael with that stuffed raccoon, most of my greatest memories and childhood moments include him. My family is deeply saddened by his passing and will always be here for you all.

I am proud to say Daniel was my friend. As a young executive he demonstrated outstanding business acumen and a sharp mind for details. He was most importantly kind, completely trustworthy, honest and happy. I will miss him . Judy and I wish to express our deepest sympathy to Daniel’s family. I am personally profoundly saddened by his passing. John Bardis

Remembering Daniel brings a smile through the tears. He and Jeremy always made us laugh with their quest for fun. Masking tape traps in the woods for robbers, endlessly teasing his mom, dirt piles, UNC, art class in high school, finally finding love with Shelly, the list goes on and on. John and I thought of Daniel as another member of the family. Our hearts go out to you his family. We pray that you are able to take comfort in your memories of Daniel. He was loved and will be missed.
