Robert Mark Mares

Robert Mark Mares, age 82 passed away peacefully at his home on September 20, 2017. Robert (Bob) was born March 5, 1935 in Wenatchee, Washington, the son of the late Virginia and Dr. Lumir Martin Mares. Bob grew up in Wenatchee on a farm among horses and apple trees. He attended Wenatchee High School and later moved to Seattle, earned a BA in Business Administration from the University of Washington and always remained a "Udub Fan." In 1957, he married Arloene (Ardee) Lindstrom and raised three daughters. His career in transportation management took the family to California and eventually back to Washington. In 1979, he started Mares-Shreve and Associates, a customs brokerage firm and worked there until his retirement.

Bob enjoyed attending Husky football and basketball games, many trips to Hualalai on the Big Island, reading, collecting glass art and spending time with friends and family. After years of researching his ancestry, he traveled to Scotland at age 80 visiting castles associated with his family heritage.

He is survived by his daughters Kathy Mares (Joseph Walter), Lois Mares (Greg Arms), and Linda Mares Titus (Bruce Titus); grandchildren Devon and Kelsey Walter, David and Rachel Arms, Courtney Titus-Barr (Nicholas), Michael (Erika), Kelly, and Matthew Titus; and one great grandson Collin Barr.

A Celebration of his Life will

be held on October 8, 2017.
