Mark S. Weiss, 78

Star of David November 14, 2022 ~ 20 Heshvan 5783


Mark S. Weiss, age 78, died on November 14, 2022, in his home surrounded by his loving family. He was born on February 25, 1944, to (the now late) Edward and Evelyn Weiss.

Mark was a star athlete who was recruited to attend Tulane University on a football scholarship.  He was also an innovative entrepreneur ahead of his time.  In 1971, he founded Call-a-Mart, a computer-driven delivery grocery store. Several years later, he founded the Farmer’s Garden Restaurant, which he later transformed into the healthy fast-food chain the Fresher Cooker.  He devoted the last half of his life to quietly helping others in his community and beyond.

He was a member of Chabad of Kentucky, Congregation Adath Jeshurun, and Congregation Anshei Sfard.

Mark is survived by his wife, Sandi (Tanenhaus); his adoring daughters Melissa Weiss Mazer (Ken), Karen Weiss Goldfarb (Les), and Lesley Weiss Zwick (Micha); and his beloved grandchildren, Alex, Lena, and Mira Mazer, Miles Goldfarb, and Emma, Madelyn, and Elliot Zwick; his brothers Dr. Bernard Weiss (Lynn) and Gary Weiss (Kay); and his many loved cousins, aunts, nieces, and nephews.

Visitation will begin at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, November 15, 2022, and will continue with the funeral service at 2:30 pm at Herman Meyer & Son, Inc., 1338 Ellison Avenue.  The burial will follow in Adath Jeshurun Cemetery.

May his memory be a blessing.
