Mark Shatz

He was born in Kenton, son of the late Sam and Yetta Shatz. A World War II veteran, he was a graduate of the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa and was a respected businessman in Union City and Martin, where he and his wife, the late Gladys (Waldman) Shatz, owned the Town and Campus stores. He was a prominent member of the Jewish community and one of the founders of the Union City Jewish Community Center.
He is survived by his daughter, JoEllen Shatz; his son and daughter-in-law, Sol and Susan Shatz; his grandchildren, Daniel Shatz and Jeffrey Shatz; and his long-time companion, Peri Wayne.
He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife, to whom he was a loving and devoted husband; two sons, Sammy Shatz and Steve Shatz; and his brother, Sydnor Shatz.
Mark will always be remembered by all who knew him as a true “southern” gentleman.
