Mark Newman Obituary
Mark Newman

The Newman/Noble-Newman family is heartbroken. Our beautiful husband & father, Mark Newman died unexpectedly from a heart attack on 11/20/17. Mark was at home when he died, with Karen, his wife of 38 years by his side, along with his beloved dogs, Bear & Roscoe.

Mark was larger than life, a tall handsome man with a big personality & generous spirit. His pride & joy were his daughters Lindsey, Shelley, & Melissa & his grandson Benny. Mark's love for his family & friends was fierce, unconditional, effusive, & all encompassing. He was a retired electrician, a guitar player, photographer, avid reader, soccer fan and the life of every party. He loved music, especially the Band & Bob Dylan and could make a mean martini.

Mark was born on 3/11/48 in NYC to Ruth and Barnet Newman and grew up in Brooklyn. He is survived by his wife Karen Noble-Newman, his daughters Melissa Newman, Shelley Newman, Lindsey Newman (Steven Markowski), grandson Benjamin Markowski, brother William Newman (Marylu Horkowitz), his father in law David Noble, Karen's large extended family, and the many young people that he befriended and loved.

Raise a glass to Mark & give generously to those you love. To honor Mark please give to any charitable organization that is meaningful to you. Share the love.

A celebration of Mark's life will be held on Thursday, 11/30 at

2:00 pm at the Lake Forest Park Civic Club, 17301 Beach Dr NE, Lake Forest Park, WA 98155.
