Dr. Donald J. Adler of Doylestown, Pennsylvania, died October 5, 2013. He was 64.

Born on June 24, 1949, in Reading, Pennsylvania, to Rose and Milton Adler, he graduated from Cleveland Heights High School, The Ohio State University and Michigan State University Medical School. He did his residency at Wright State University. He had a dermatology practice in Doylestown for 33 years and belonged to and was honored by the Philadelphia Dermatological Society.

Dr. Adler had a lifelong love of music and art. He was also an accomplished chef. Whenever possible, he would combine these loves, attending concerts, museums and dining establishments.

He was dearly loved by so many people, those who worked for him, patients who came to see him year after year bringing their children and grandchildren, and by his family and friends.

Dr. Adler is survived by his wife, Barbara (nee Weissman); children, Josh Adler (Catherine Haas-Adler) of Paris, and Lauren Dear (Brandin) of Cambridge, Massachusetts; grandson, Max Adler; siblings Richard (Mary) Adler of Sebastopol, California, and Kenneth (Ellen) Adler of Toledo, Ohio; and many loving cousins, nieces and nephews.
