MARKUS 1938 – 2022 It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of STEVE J. MARKUS at the Chinook Regional Hospital, on Monday, October 24, 2022 at the age of 84 years.
He was a loving and caring husband to Brenda and they shared 31 happy years together.
Steve was predeceased by his parents, Steve and Margaret Sr., and sister Margaret
Steve is survived by his brothers-in-law Maylon Thomas and Neil (Edna) Thomas as well as numerous nieces, nephews and cousins in Hungary.
Thank you to all the doctors and nurses at the Chinook Regional Hospital Emergency Department and our family physician, Dr. Jonker. A special thank you to Ed and staff at Nordbridge Pharmacy for all their help.
Steve was a farmer all his life. For the last 30 years, the Nikkel family in Coaldale helped him to keep the farm running. Steve was always back and forth to the farm to spend a little time with John Jr. He was the son we never had.
A private Family Service will be held at a later date.
For those who wish, memorial donations may be made in Steve’s name to the Chinook Regional Hospital Foundation, 960 19 Street South, Lethbridge, AB, T1J 1W5 or online at ( or a charity of one’s choice.

    Brenda I just read about Steve’s passing. I’m so glad he & I had such a
    great phone visit back a few weeks so it shocked me to read about
    his death. Loved his sense of humor. Always enjoyed a laugh &
    imparting so much wisdom. What a memory he had as well.! You
    had so many wonderful times together & travels as well. I know this
    will not be easy for you. Praying that you will be given strength &
    wisdom as you go through this difficult time.

    Your friends
    Brenda & George Dewar
