Obituary for Mark Blaue

July 24, 1952 - February 29, 2020
San Antonio, Texas | Age 67


Mark Randall Blaue, age 67, passed away on Saturday, February 29, 2020, in San Antonio. Mark was born on July 24, 1952 in Spencer, Iowa to Sheridan and Carolyn (Toland) Blaue. He attended school in Royal, Iowa and graduated from Clay Central High School in 1970. He went on to attend Wayne State College and began farming with his father. In 1976 Mark was united in marriage to Jan Miller of Lake Park, Iowa. They were happily married for 43 years. Mark's true joy was the blessing of 2 wonderful sons, Barrett and Mitchell. He was exceptionally proud of their accomplishments in their careers and the husbands and fathers they are today.

In 1984, the family moved to San Antonio, Texas where Mark started a successful real estate company and was still actively involved in the business up until his death. Mark had a humorous wit and loved to laugh. He was well known amongst his crews, fellow realtors, and vendors.
Mark was very passionate about his family. He loved spending time with his in-laws wherever they decided to meet in the US. The "apples of his eyes" were his 5 grandchildren. Mark loved attending their school and sporting activities or just playing with them. Being a "farmer at heart", Mark was involved in managing the everyday family farm business in Iowa. Mark was also an avid runner, loved to snow ski in the Colorado Rockies, and tolerated fishing!! Mark was just learning to take time off to travel with Jan.

Mark was passionate about his faith and loved his Concordia Church family. He served the congregation as an usher, Vice-President and President of the Concordia congregation, as a member of the Church Council, and Vice-chairman and Chairman of the Board of Elders.
Mark was preceded in death by his parents, Sheridan and Carolyn Blaue; Grandparents, Harry and Katie Blaue; Ruth and Dale Toland; Uncle, Dean Toland; Cousin, Stan Blaue; and other family members.
