Daniel Liff was a gentle soul. Born in Nashville in 1959, he was the elder son of Nina and Noah Liff, one of the founders of Steiner-Liff. In his estate plans, Daniel asked that a portion of his estate be used to create an Unrestricted Fund within The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. Daniel had a heart for the environment, for the protection of green spaces, and for the “underdog.”
He was a chef who worked at several establishments in the decades before Nashville was on any culinary map. Following in the footsteps of both of his parents, Daniel was an avid fan of the arts and music, hence the name of this Fund. Sadly, Daniel died June 27, 2015, at the young age of 56, after suffering from the complications of diabetes.
