We are saddened to share the passing of the Honorable John E. Dewane, retired judge and close friend of many members of the Kotz Sangster team, on Thursday, October 14th. At 81 years old, John spent several years as a vital member of our firm in addition to his impactful career serving Berrien County as a Circuit Court judge.
Kotz Sangster helped to make the Christmas season a bit brighter for a number of families in need this year. The initiative was undertaken in support of the adopt-a-family program sponsored by the firm’s friends at The Salvation Army.
Through the generous donations of attorneys and staff, an assortment of toys, books and clothing items, including pajamas and winter coats for the little ones, was purchased and wrapped. Additionally, each family received gift cards so that they could continue shopping for those special items throughout the holidays.
Waiting for The Salvation Army’s holiday helpers to arrive and pick up the gifts are: (seated) Jeff Sangster and Greg Wysocki; (standing, left to right) Courtney Ciullo, Carrie Bechill, Sherri Thieme, Jaime Hopko, Leslie LaVerdiere, Ed Boucher, Jean Irwin, Marlene DeLorme, Dennis Egan, Louise Evans, Jacqueline Kaltz, Chase Cantrell, Bruce Margulis, David de Reyna, Chris Ferlito, George Curran and Lene Viculin.
