Mark Kempner, 68, passed away peacefully at the William Bremen Jewish Home Feb. 2, 2020. He was born in Chicago to Sarah and Bernard Kempner, Holocaust survivors.
Mark always had physical difficulties and dreamed that he would someday walk again. He lived for a number of years at The William Breman Jewish Home, where he was loved by staff, fellow residents, volunteers and many friends, especially for his infectious smile, sense of humor and curiosity.
He is survived and sorely missed by his sister Fran Kempner Ackerman and niece, Rosanne Mastin. Graveside services were held at Crest Lawn Memorial Park Feb. 4. Donations can be made to The William Bremen Jewish Home.
