Obituary: Brian Waronker

The Atlanta native died at 24 just as he was making a career in commercial real estate.

Brian Alan Waronker passed away Friday, Dec. 29, 2017, in Atlanta. He was 24 years old.

Brian was born July 28, 1993, in Atlanta to Steve and Mitzi Waronker. He attended the University of Georgia, where he was a proud member of the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity. Brian graduated from the Michael J. Coles College of Business at Kennesaw State University in 2016. He was employed by Halpern Enterprises as a research analyst and was building a successful commercial real estate career.

Brian was an extraordinary young man who will be deeply missed. To know him was to love him, as he was exceptionally charismatic with a gift to make people laugh. His heart was as big as his 6-foot-3-inch frame, and he had a deep passion for all things related to family, friends and Georgia football.

Brian is survived by his mother and father, Mitzi and Steve Waronker; a brother, Jeffrey Waronker; grandmothers Mary Lou Lazarus and Edith Waronker; aunts and uncles Sue and Harold Waronker, Robin and Steve Lazarus, and Jody and Michael Feldman; Waronker cousins Joni, Adam, Meredith, Cameron, Mindy, Matt and Mitchell; and Feldman cousins Jason, Brett and Kevin.
