He was born March 20, 1959 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Joyce Levison Zacks and the late Barry Zacks. He is survived by his loving mother, Joyce Zacks Shlesinger and stepfather, Irving Shlesinger of Atlanta, GA. He was the oldest of four siblings, Andrew Zacks (Denise Leadbetter) of San Francisco, CA, Tamara Zacks of Atlanta, GA and Debbie Zacks Robbins (Clifton Robbins) of Greenwich, CT.

He is also survived by his former wife, Mary Keller Zacks of Columbus, Ohio, the mother of his five children. Daniel attended Bexley High School and graduated from Saddle River Country Day School in Saddle River, NJ. Those close to him loved his good nature and loving heart. He enjoyed sharing time with each of his children whether it was having a fantastic meal, fishing or just simply visiting. Danny's zest for life and love of travel took him far and wide and he was known as an "idea guy". He was a stranger to no one and people always remembered Danny as he left an imprint wherever he went. He will be forever loved and remembered. There will be a tribute to Danny for friends and family at 12 noon on Friday, August 4 at The Ivory Room, 2 Miranova Pl, Fl 6, Columbus, OH.
