Mark Mazer Warshauer

Mark Mazer Warshauer, 85, of Dallas, passed away on July 6, 2023, after succumbing to his long battle with heart disease. Mark was born Feb. 16, 1938, in Middletown, Connecticut. He attended Tabor Academy, later graduating from Clarkson College with a B.S. in Business Administration. Active in ROTC at Clarkson, he went on to serve as a captain in the United States Army, during which time he was stationed at Fort Monmouth in New Jersey and Korea. 

Mark had a successful and lengthy career in business, working in the computer, technology and banking industries. He was known for his warmth and friendliness, qualities that endeared him to all who had the pleasure of knowing him. His incredible voice and an enthusiastic and gregarious personality brought joy to many and he easily made friends and a lasting impression wherever he lived and worked. 

Mark’s love of sports was legendary. He played soccer in college, played tennis socially and coached, but his true sports passion was for his beloved teams (especially the Dodgers) and certain favored athletes (including Tiger Woods, Steph Curry and of course his children and grandchildren). Mark also enjoyed casinos and horse races. He was in his element at the Texas Hold ‘Em tables, large group dinners in Atlantic City and long afternoons spent with close friends at the Monmouth Park Racetrack.

Mark was a loving dad and grandfather to all of his children and grandchildren and was very supportive of the many activities that they participated in, from dance to soccer, as well as cheerleading, skateboarding, football and religious pursuits. He was truly an awesome dad, grandfather and uncle, beloved by all his family.

Mark is survived by his beloved wife of 61 years, Lynne, whom he met while at Clarkston; his four children, Emily Lilledahl, Liz Sobel, William and spouse Dina Warshauer and Michael Warshauer; his seven grandchildren, Cameron Lilledahl, Sage Lilledahl, Eli Sobel, Ivy Sobel, Samantha Warshauer, Caroline Warshauer and Phoebe Warshauer; brother-in-law Howard Gelin; sister-in-law Michelle Stein; and nieces, nephews and spouses Susan and George Louderback, Nancy and Jimmy Aronson, Amy and Jim McCollough and James Gelin.
