Mourning the Loss of Akron Bar Member David Brennan

The Akron Bar Association and Akron Bar Foundation mourn the passing of Akron attorney and member David Brennan. Mr. Brennan was instrumental in the creation and funding of the Akron Bar Foundation Scholarship Endowment Fund which provides law school scholarships to students with a connection to Akron and Summit County. He never forgot the role a law school scholarship played in his life and wanted others to benefit the way he did. His scholarship legacy will live on through the careers of student beneficiaries.

The Akron Bar Association and Akron Bar Foundation offer sincere condolences to his wife, Ann, his family, and friends.
