Obituary for Anthony G. Markos

Anthony “Jido” G. Markos, age 63, of Hartford, Wisconsin crossed over to his heavenly home on Saturday, July 14, 2018 at the Aurora Medical Center in Hartford.

Anthony was born August 9, 1954 in Lacrosse, WI to Thomas and Mary (nee Howe) Markos.

Anthony was passionate about life in every aspect. He was intensely involved in the lives of his children and grandchildren. He believed in sharing meals together at the dinner table and he spent most of his evenings in the company of his family, either cooking with them or bringing laughter to the table. He believed in love and forgiveness and he spread a message of hope to anyone fortunate enough to meet him. He spent his young years as a pastor in the city of Milwaukee, to which he devoted countless hours of guidance and support and earned the love of many. He loved the world and he approached each day with a sense of excitement. When you were with him, you were on an adventure, even if you were only going around the block. He was a singer of songs, a gifted piano player, a weekend fisherman, a bike mechanic, and he was the guy you called when you got a flat tire. He was the first to listen and the last to speak. He was the best friend, father and Jido that anyone could have ever wished for and his laughter and smile will be deeply missed at the family table.

Anthony is survived by his loving children, Sarah (Rob) Adjemian, Benjamin Markos, Amos (Green) Markos and Samuel Markos; cherished grandchildren, Levi, Ezra, Elyse, and Austin. Siblings Laurie (John) Schnell, Michael (Ann) Markos, Joseph (Barb) Markos, and Peggy Markos-Woodling. He is further survived by nieces, nephews, and other loved relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

The Markos family will be hosting a Memorial Service in honor of Anthony’s life on Saturday, July 21, 2018 at 2:00 pm at Life Restoration Church, 2422 W National Ave, Milwaukee with Pastor Harry Eisenmenger officiating. Family will greet relatives and friends at the church on Saturday beginning at 1:00 pm.

The Markos Family would like to extend their sincere gratitude to the nurses and staff at the Aurora Medical Center in Hartford for their loving care of Anthony. We can never thank you enough for the compassion you showed us during our ten days at the hospital.
