Dan Bonyhadi died accidentally on Saturday, March 21, 2009. He was born on Halloween, in 1947, at Berkeley, California, although the place and date of his birth never seemed to affect his personal and life values. He was the only son of Irvin and Helen (Goldberg) Bonyhadi, immigrants from Europe who came to the United States, in 1940, to escape the Holocaust.
After a long career in the wine and beverage industry, Dan came to Fresno, in 1990, to manage a local beer distributor. After a turn as its chief executive, Dan launched his own wine brokerage business and achieved great success in that endeavor.
Dan and Lorna were proud to be part of the Fresno community and seriously fulfilled their self-imposed obligations to improve Fresno, and the World. Dan was an indefatigable worker on behalf of many worthy causes and organizations including, Hinds Hospice, Rotary International, the Boys and Girls Club's, Police and Fire Chief Foundations and Make-a-Wish. He was a tireless contributor of his time, money, wine, cigars and other goodies to many worthy causes. He undertook trips to Uganda to work on improving food and water supplies and one to Ecuador, to deliver wheelchairs to the handicapped. He was an American patriot who dearly loved America, and an ardent supporter of Israel.
Dan lived life to the fullest with unlimited zeal for many of the finer things in life: fine food and wines, cigars, travel and fast cars. He was an accomplished pilot and competitive driver who had raced cars and boats. He had extensive knowledge, curiosity and collections of cars, wine and cigars. His generosity, personality, friendship, sense of humor and care for the less fortunate all greatly improved those who had the good fortune to know and work with him.
He is survived by Lorna, his wife of 36 years; numerous cousins; and a great many friends from his business, his passions and Rotary.
A Celebration of Dan's life will be held at the Dante Club, 6176 N. Grantland Ave., in Fresno, Ca., 93711, on Thursday, March 26, 2009, at 10:30 a.m.
