With deep and profound sadness, Reminger Co., L.P.A. mourns the passing of our dear friend and partner, Donald J. Moracz. Don unfortunately passed away on September 25, 2020 at the age of 54 due to complications from Covid-19.
Don graduated from Chanel High School and continued his studies at John Carroll University. He graduated from John Carroll with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science. Don went on to study law at the Case Western Reserve University Law School. He graduated in the class of 1991.
We met Don when he joined the Reminger law firm while a law student. He officially became an attorney with the Reminger law firm in 1991. He originally focused his practice on trucking litigation and the investigation of truck accidents.
Don was a natural in the practice of law. He was elevated to shareholder status within five years of joining the firm. In 1997, he began a transition into medical malpractice defense wherein he started to defend medical care givers and healthcare institutions. In 1999, Don also became the partner in charge of our Sandusky office, as well as a member of the Management Group for the Reminger law firm. In 2005, along with those duties, he became a member of the Executive Group, serving in that capacity until his death and helped guide Reminger to enormous growth over the tenure he had at the law firm.
On top of all of those responsibilities, Don tried well over 75 jury trials and was recently honored as a fellow of the American College of Trial Attorneys. His honors and recognitions are too many to count. Don built a wonderful reputation as an advocate for his health care clients, but also as a professional who was loved by judges, opposing lawyers and all of his colleagues and peers.
Most importantly, Don was simply a great man. He never said no and never had a cross word to say about anyone. To say he was beloved by his colleagues at the Reminger office would be an understatement.
Although Don had many impressive and significant accomplishments, the most important accomplishment was his family. He is survived by his loving wife, Molly, and his three children, Brian, Liza and Matthew. Don is also survived by his parents and his brother.
Everyone at Reminger feels fortunate and privileged to have known and worked with Don. His passing is a huge loss to our Reminger family, the law profession and our community.
