The firstborn son of Elizabeth Jean and Leo Frohlich, Mark was born May 25, 1942, in Ponca City, Okla., followed by his brothers David, Phil, Steve and Paul Frohlich. He came to Colorado to study at the University of Denver, where he earned a B.A. in accounting and an MBA in finance and economics. It was there that he met his life partner, Anna Lee Ames Nowell.
Mark first worked in public accounting and commercial banking, but his true passion was for being a financial adviser. His careful work, that he loved so much, was as an investment adviser with Smith Barney, A.G. Edwards, Wachovia and Wells Fargo Advisors. For Mark, the most rewarding part of his work was building deep and lasting relationships with his clients. He will be remembered as a man of great integrity, warmth, and dignity and as someone who took great pleasure in caring for others.
Mark participated in a wide variety of civic, educational, and recreational activities as a member, board member, or finance committee chairman for many organizations including: University of Denver Alumni Association, Colorado School of Banking (instructor), Girl Scouts Mile High Council, Mile High United Way, Bear Creek Water and Sanitation District, American BUDO College (martial arts), Rocky Mountain Ragtime Festival and Ragtime Society of Colorado. He also served as a mentor to college seniors entering the financial services workforce.
On April 30, 2018, Mark Frohlich passed suddenly at his home in Lakewood. He is survived by many, including his beloved wife of 53 years, Anna Lee; his daughters Liz Frohlich (of San Rafael, Calif.), Peggy Frohlich (of Carlisle, Penn.) and Asherah Allen (of South Hadley, Mass.); dear niece Esther Becker (Moraga, Calif.) and his grandchildren Mark Salama, Rosalie Bridge and Amy Salama.
