Obituary of George Richard Markward Sr.
George Richard Markward Sr., 92, passed away October 1, 2021 with his devoted wife, Norma, at his side.
He was born on July 20, 1929 in Philadelphia, PA to the late Francis Robert Markward and Margaret K.(Magee) Markward.
George lived a long and full life. He was a veteran of the Korean War and a banker all his professional career. As a teenager, his mother decided he should work at the local bank and got him a job sweeping floors. He became a teller before joining the Air Force. After almost 4 years of service to his country, he returned to banking and retired as a Bank President.
He loved playing golf every day of his retirement until he just couldn't do it anymore. He always enjoyed having his family close to him, a good meal, red wine, chocolate and his beloved Krispy Kreme donuts.
His family includes his Wife of 66 years, Norma; Sons George Markward Jr. and Robert Markward; Daughter Dawn Lupher; Grandchildren Helen Markward and RJ Lupher and his great-grandson Jameson Evans.
George will be cremated and interred in a veterans cemetery in Florida. No other arrangements or services have been made at this time. We hope to have a celebration of life memorial some time later.
