HOLLAND, MI (WHTC) - A judicial giant whose shadow stretched from his Zeeland home across the state has died. Robert Danhof, who served 23 years on the Michigan Court of Appeals, the last 17 as its Chief Justice, passed away last Friday at the age of 87. The Zeeland High product also had a career as a federal prosecutor, a legal adviser to Governor George Romney, and had helped create the appeals court as a leading delegate in the state Constitutional Convention of 1961-62. In retirement, Judge Danhof was vice-chair of the Michigan Historical Commission. Visitation is today at the Langeland-Sterenberg Funeral Home in Holland, with funeral services tomorrow morning at 11 AM in Hope Church.
