Born in New York, New York
Resided in Anchorage, Alaska


Mark Rindner died at his home in Anchorage, Alaska, on June 12, 2020, after a hard-fought battle with pancreatic cancer.

Mark will be deeply missed by his survivors, including his children, Benjamin Rindner and Leah Brown (Zach Brown); granddaughter, Emilia Brown; sister, Nancy Iris (Tom Costello); brother, Dan Rindner (Allison Rindner); former spouse, Christine Schleuss; nephews, Jack and Jonah Rindner; and a large circle of loving friends. Mark was predeceased by his father, Jack Rindner (1971); and mother, Annette Rindner (2019).

Mark grew up in Westfield, N.J., and was a graduate of Westfield High School. He attended the University of Pennsylvania, and in 1971 obtained an undergraduate degree in history and a Master of Science in education. He went on to earn a law degree from the University of California Berkeley in 1978. Mark practiced law in Anchorage for more than 40 years, rising from associate to managing partner at a law firm before being appointed to his dream job as a Superior Court Judge in 2001.

Mark was a strong believer in justice, equality and kindness, and was especially proud of his service to the community in care and family courts. Besides his family, Mark's greatest loves were fishing, bridge, cooking, the New York Yankees and having his opinions affirmed on appeal.

A celebration of life will be held at a future date. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that any donations in Mark's honor be made to Alaska Legal Aid Services.
