    In Loving Memory of Morton Paul Tauber ("Morty")

    Morton Paul Tauber, affectionately known as "Morty" or “Papa,” passed away on September 11, 2023. He was born on January 28, 1936, in Brooklyn, New York, to Mollie and Leon Tauber. Morty will be remembered for his warmth, humor, and keen wisdom. 

    Morty was a proud alumnus of the City College of New York (CCNY), always wearing his CCNY t-shirt as a badge of honor. In the early 60s, with $25 in his pocket, he embarked on a journey that would change the course of his life when he relocated to Atlanta. 

    Morty was a devoted family man. From 1964 to 1977, he was married to Sara Gross, and together they had two beautiful daughters, Stacy and Allison. In 1987, Morty reconnected with Arlene Brilliant Prince.  He married Arlene in 1988, gaining a life partner and two children whom he loved dearly, Stephanie and Jonathan.

    In 1967, Morty and his close friend Arnold Balser took a bold step and opened the accounting firm Tauber & Balser, where they diligently served their clients for over 30 years. When he retired from the firm, Morty shifted his focus to growing his family business, Allison Mortgage. Together with Arlene, they navigated the ever-changing landscape of the mortgage industry.

    While accounting and mortgages were his livelihood, “side hustles” were his passion.  From being the OG Stub Hub for the 1996 Olympics to a “travel agent,” Morty was an entrepreneur extraordinaire.  He even ran an infamous Russian popcorn venture – until the Russian mob ran him out of the country. 

    Morty loved helping people. He was active in organizations like Jewish Family & Career Services, Temple Sinai, and the North Atlanta Men’s Club. Still, his true passion lay in talking to people, hearing their stories, and helping them however he could. With a contagious sense of humor, he could communicate with people from all walks of life. No one was a stranger, especially cab drivers.

    Morty had an insatiable wanderlust, famously having explored more than 100 destinations worldwide, from the historic pyramids of Giza to the pristine glaciers of Alaska and everywhere in between. Morty's passion for travel was infectious, and he often invited family and friends to join him along the way.

    Aside from travel, Morty enjoyed playing a challenging game of doubles tennis, walking along the Chattahoochee, and being dealt in for a hand of poker. He never turned down a trip to the movies, especially when it included a large Diet Coke and heavily-buttered popcorn. 

    The world was a better place with Morty in it. 

    Morty was preceded in death by his parents, Molly and Leon Tauber, and his brother, Robert “Bobby” Tauber. He is survived by his devoted wife, Arlene Prince Tauber. Together, they shared a love that inspired everyone fortunate enough to witness it. Morty is also survived by his cherished daughters, Stacy (Brian) Krapf, Allison (Dan) Fellner, and Stephanie (Justin) Wyatt, and his son, Jonathan (Aneta) Prince, and an array of grandchildren who brought boundless joy to his life: Sloan, Drew, Maddie, Eli, Max, Mila, and Tali. He also leaves behind grandnieces and nephews, cousins, and many beloved friends, including his faithful canine companion, Licorice.

    A funeral service in loving memory of Morty will be held at Arlington Cemetery on September 13, 2023, where he will be laid to rest with the honor and respect befitting his remarkable life. Shiva will follow at the home of Allison and Dan Fellner.

    In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests that donations be directed to the William Breman Jewish Home, Alzheimer’s Association, or Weinstein Hospice in Morty's memory.

    Morty Tauber's legacy will forever be remembered by those who had the privilege of knowing him. His kindness, humor, and zest for life will continue to inspire us all. He lived his life on his terms – he lived it “Morty’s Way.”
