Herman Edward Daly Obituary

DALY, Herman Edward, 84, of Midlothian, Va. passed away on October 28, 2022. He was preceded in death by his beloved parents, Mildred Herrmann Daly and Edward Joseph Daly; and brother-in-law, Thomas William Heyck. He is survived by his loving wife of 59 years, Marcia Damasceno Daly; and daughters, Terri Daly Stewart of Atlanta, Ga. and Karen Daly Junker of Richmond, Va. He was the proud grandfather of Anna Kathryn Stewart, William Edward Daly Stewart and Isabel Maria Junker; as well as the loving father-in-law of Jeffrey Ellis Stewart and Christian Stockdale Junker. He is also survived by his adoring sister, Denis Lynn Daly Heyck; and many loved nieces and nephews, extended family and friends. Herman was proud to have grown up in Houston, Tx. and that is where he started his educational and professional career. He graduated from Rice University, and went on to receive his Ph.D. in Economics from Vanderbilt University. Herman was foremost a teacher and mentor. He loved engaging with students and peers, learning from all disciplines. Grounded in a deep faith, he was above all a kind and humble man: a dedicated and loving son, brother, husband, father and grandfather. He had a long and illustrious career as a groundbreaking leader in Steady State Economics, and a founding member of the international field of Ecological Economics. His career led him to many locations, including Brazil, Yale University, Louisiana State University, the World Bank in Washington, D.C., and the University of Maryland. Throughout this career, he was always engaged with many great thinkers and colleagues from around the world, all dedicated to the survival and preservation of our beautiful planet, God’s creation. His contributions have been innumerable, and he was recognized and awarded nationally and internationally. Herman most enjoyed being with his family, both in the United States and in Brazil, spending as much time as possible with the love of his life, Marcia. They cherished many years together, facing all of life’s joys and challenges with a steadfast faith. Herman’s gentle yet larger than life spirit will be missed terribly by all who knew him and loved him. There will be a memorial service and celebration of his life at 4:00 p.m., Saturday, November 12, 2022 at Centenary United Methodist Church, 411 E Grace St, Richmond, Va. 23219. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to International Society for Ecological Economics https://theisee.wildapricot.org/page-1555064, Friends of the Earth https://foe.org/ or Centenary United Methodist Church
