Obituary for Roger D. Markus
Roger D. Markus of Luck, WI passed away peacefully in his sleep while sitting in his favorite chair on Thursday, November 20, 2014 at the age of 62.
Roger is survived by his wife, Linda; children, Luke of Hudson, WI; Melanie Ellison (and husband Robert) of Star Prairie, WI; Sarah Germain (and husband Cole) of Somerset, WI. Grandchildren, Patrick, Brenna, Brynn, Rowan, Justin, Nathan, Hunter, Louise, and Sopia. Sisters, Cindy Dunn (and husband Larry), Judy Childers (and husband Don), and Patty Russell (and children Hunter, Jordan and Steven Jr.).
Roger was born on April 26, 1952 in St. Paul, MN to Donald and Phyllis Markus. He attended high school in the Twin Cities. He has worked as a carpenter for the last 35+ years and has owned his own business for the last 9 years, running it alongside his wonderful wife, Linda, to whom he has been happily married for 33 years.
Roger was a devoted husband, father, brother, provider, comedian, preacher, teacher and friend. He was a devoted follower of Jesus, and all who knew him knew his love of God through his kindness, love and generosity. His life was his testimony. Roger would (humbly) tell you himself, he was God's favorite. Sadly, Roger did not live long enough to see his beloved Vikings win the Superbowl.
Almost as much as he loved his Heavenly Father and amazing wife Linda, Roger loved to fish. It was his passion, and he passed that love and passion on to his son, Luke, who has spent many hours in the boat with his dad and is honored to carry on the search for the big one. He will be deeply missed by his loving family and friends.
Visitation and Memorial Service will be held on Tuesday, November 25, 2014 - Visitation beginning at 10am with service following at 11am at River Valley Christian Church in St. Croix Falls, WI. There will be a luncheon immediately following. Pastor Dan Denissen will lead us in worship and a Celebration of Life.
