Mark Goshin

March 9, 1951January 23, 2023
Mark Goshin passed away peacefully in his home in West Orange, New Jersey on January 23, 2023 at the age of 71. He was the beloved husband of Bonnie Askenase-Goshin and proud father of his daughter, Sydnie. His loss is mourned by his brother Eric, his nephews David, Michael, Joel, and Joshua, and his nieces Jillian and Julia. Mark was born to Lynne Miller on March 9, 1951 in Manhattan, New York. He left New York to attend Quinnipiac College but returned afterward to start working in the fur industry, then later in printing. He remained a proud New Yorker through his final days, rooting for the Yankees and Giants. On May 2, 1996, he met Bonnie on a blind date at The Blue Ribbon restaurant in New York. Feeling an instant connection, they agreed to spend a weekend together in Washington D.C after only a few dates. By the end of that weekend, they were inseparable and have remained so ever since. They were married on September 14, 1997 and welcomed Sydnie into the world on March 31, 1999. Mark always made an immediate impression with his dry sense of humor and classic New York sarcasm, but he paired this with a gentleness and amusement of the strange world we live in, that revealed the kind and openhearted man underneath. He was incredibly dedicated to his family, particularly his daughter, with whom he shared a special and unique bond. He had an uncanny instinct for knowing when someone needed support or advice and provided it with just a few words or small gestures. His love, loyalty, and reliability were a constant source of comfort to his friends and family, and we will miss this comforting support dearly in his absence.
