Daniel Blumenthal, a generous donor to The Valley Hospital for more than three decades and namesake of the Daniel and Gloria Blumenthal Cancer Center in Paramus, died Thursday. The Saddle River resident was 94.

The center, part of the three-story, 128,000-square-foot satellite facility of The Valley Hospital at Valley Health Plaza, was dedicated nine years ago within the Robert and Audrey Luckow Pavilion.

Mr. Blumenthal, the chairman of the highly successful cigar company Villazon until the late 1990s, had retired at age 80 to a life of family and philanthropy. The building of the cancer center was tantamount in the years that followed Mr. Blumenthal’s retirement, said Gloria, his wife of almost 40 years.
