BOWERSTON — Phillip L. Markwell Sr., age 77, of Bowerston, passed away at Community Hospice House in New Philadelphia on Monday, Jan. 13, 2014, after a lengthy illness.

Born Sept. 24, 1936, in Clearfield, Ky., he was a son of the late George Andy and Elizabeth (Link) Markwell. He was a resident of the Bowerston area since 1978 and worked in the local lumber and logging industry. An avid outdoorsman, Phillip loved hunting and fishing.

On Nov. 5, 1955, Phillip married the former Violet D. Stanley who survives him at their home. He is also survived by their five children, Phillip L. Markwell Jr. and Timothy R. Markwell of the home, James A. (Tammy) Markwell and Deloris J. “Dee” (Ray) Burleson of Bowerston, and Karen L. (Marty) Bloom of Dennison; and Roger (Remah) Hodge of Barnhill and Mary Lehmiller of Bowerston, whom he loved like his own children; 18 grandchildren; 18 great-grandchildren; a sister-in-law, Joyce Markwell of Conneaut, Ohio; three brothers-in-law, Bud (Elaine) Stanley of Erie, Pa., Butch Stanley of Huntington, W.Va. and Sam Lelko of Ocala, Fla.; and numerous nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a brother, Earl Markwell; and three sisters, Polly Kleckner, Betty Lelko and Violet Shuster.

In keeping with Phillip’s wishes, he has been cremated without a public visitation.

A Memorial Service, officiated by Pastor Jerralyn Myers, will be held 1 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 18th, in the R.K. LINDSEY FUNERAL HOME in Dennison. Family and friends are invited to call at the Funeral Home one hour prior to the Service. Interment will be in Tunnel Hill Cemetery near Bowerston at a later date.
