Tax Prof Brian E. Comerford
(Brooklyn) died on March 4
The Brooklyn Law School community mourns the loss of a beloved colleague, teacher and friend, Professor Emeritus Brian Comerford. Over the course of nearly four decades of service on the Law School faculty, teaching and writing in the areas of Taxation and Estate Planning, he touched the lives of thousands of students. He served as Counsel to the New York State Estates, Powers & Trusts Law Advisory Committee. Although his presence will be missed, it will always be felt by the colleagues and students who knew and cherished him. We extend our deepest sympathy to his wife, Carol, their children, Sean ‘12 and Kathleen, and his entire family.
The New York Times obituary reports that in lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Brooklyn Law School. (Hat Tip: Deborah Schenk.)
