Glendale, AZ

Mark Thomas Berwanger, 50, of Glendale, AZ, passed away peacefully but unexpectedly on February 11, 2024. Mark was born November 22, 1973, in Sterling, IL to his loving parents Tom and Bobbi Berwanger. He was the 2nd and youngest sibling and grew up loved and doted on by his sister Jenny. The family moved to Dixon, IL when Mark was a toddler, and he spent all his school years living in the same house at 1209 Robin Rd. In Dixon, Mark formed many close friendships that lasted until his final day and had spoken to many of his close friends the day before he passed away. Mark was known to stay in contact with his childhood and college friends regularly and could often be found on a Friday night chatting on the phone with a friend about life, the kids, and the lifelong heartache of being a Bears and White Sox fan. Mark played many high school sports as a Dixon Duke and went on to play college football as a Loras College Duhawk. He was most proud of being a defensive lineman and had many stories about his high school and college days of playing football.After college Mark was blessed with the greatest love and happiness in his life, his 3 children: Payton, Grady, and Cece. Mark devoted his life to his children and shared a special and unique relationship with each of them. Mark instilled a love of sports in his sons. He also shared a love of animals and a love of cooking creative recipes with his daughter. Many times, Mark could be found watching the game with Payton and Grady and cooking dinner with Cece while surrounded by the family pets. Mark moved to Glendale, AZ in 2004 andalthough he obtained his bachelor’s in business, he soon realized his passion was helping people. Mark devoted his career to helping people recover from mental illness and substance use. He shared a close bond with his work family where he was known for his sense of humor, love of sports, impeccable work ethic, and changing the lives of his clients.Mark was a true sports fanatic; a loyal Bears, White Sox, Bulls, Fighting Illini, and LSU Tigers fan. He also knew more about sports, arguably, than anyone you ever met. You could almost always find Mark wearing a shirt, hat, or both from one of his favorite teams. Mark was truly known for his sense of humor. If you knew Mark, you laughed with him and shared many ongoing inside jokes that probably made sense to no one else but you and him. He loved a good comedy, and his very favorite TV show was Seinfeld, of which he could pretty much quote whole episodes.Mark was an amazing “Unc” to his niece Kenna and nephews Thomas, Owen, and William. He loved to visit the Blackorby’s in Washington, IL to play games, fish, and catch up on life with his niece, nephews, sister Jenny, and brother-in-law Ryan. Mark was preceded in death by his mother, Bobbi, who he loved and adored. Mark was a thoughtful, loving, and kind son. He missed his mother every day, and it is a great comfort knowing he is now with her in Heaven.Mark and his father talked every Sunday and Mark enjoyed catching up with his dad, Tom and stepmom, Terry, and hearing about their lives and adventures out in Florida. Mark also enjoyed talking sports with his dad and all his favorite teams were the same as his dad’s so they could celebrate the joys of wins and the heartaches of loss together. In the last few years of his life Mark met and fell in love with his girlfriend Karen. She was the love of his life, and he was hers. They shared many common interests including a love of sports. They also enjoyed traveling, playing pickleball, going for walks, and birdwatching.Mark was a Christian and God loving man, he worked Sundays and did not attend church but did read the bible, pray, and talk to God daily. He was raised Catholic and felt God’s presence in his life every day.Everywhere Mark went he was kind, thoughtful, and a true gentleman; still opening doors, smiling at strangers and considerate of all those around him. Some things people said after his passing were “what a great man”, “the example of your lived brightened the lives of countless others”, ”he was the kindest most gentle soul and just an all around decent human,” “he was the greatest guy and all who knew him loved him,” ”he was the most kind and respectful gentleman,” “he was a very special person, so kind and caring,” “he was a great person to have as a friend and to know him,” “he made me smile whenever I saw him, he took the time out for small conversations that meant so much to me,” and this could go on and on……. He was the best dad, son, brother, Unc, friend, life partner and co-worker. He will be greatly missed and forever honored in the eyes of his loved ones.Mark leaves behind his 3 children; Payton Berwanger of Phoenix, AZ, Grady Berwanger of Glendale, AZ, and Cece Berwanger of Glendale, AZ.
