DALLAS — Lawrence Marcus was extolled as a man of brilliant ideas, intense curiosity and exceptional taste Monday afternoon at a memorial service at the Dallas Museum of Art attended by friends, family and past and present Neiman Marcus executives.
“He was the final link to a generation of retail visionaries as the last surviving son of Herbert Marcus and the nephew of Carrie Marcus Neiman, the founders of the store, a place that has been the pride of Dallas for over 100 years,” said Karen Katz, chief executive office of Neiman Marcus Group, in her opening remarks. “Lawrence personified his father’s values of excellence, his aunt’s belief in serving the customer and his brother Stanley’s unending quest for the best.” RELATED STORY: Lawrence Marcus Dead at 96 >>
