MARKO, Christopher Demetrie -
Peacefully passed away on May 16, 2019 in his 87th year. Born in Zhelevo, Macedonia, Chris was a proud member of the Macedonian community. A retired employee from Air Canada, Chris was also an entrepreneur with businesses that included a donut shop and dry-cleaning business. Chris had a love for travel, and with Marina by his side — and often his children and grandchildren — he traveled around the world to the U.S., Europe, Singapore and even Russia.
Chris will be sadly missed by those who had the pleasure to experience his sense of humor, dry wit and generosity. Soon he will reunite with his loving wife, son, parents, brothers and the many other family members and friends who passed before him. Chris loved his family and adored his five granddaughters — they were everything to him.
Loving husband to the late Marina Marko (nee Patskou). Loving father to Jim Marko and Anne Marie Dejardins, Debra Dershko, and (late) Bill Marko and Katherine Marko. Dear grandfather to Stefanie Dershko and Kyle Romany, Sarah Dershko, Sofia Dershko, Annique Marko, and Celeste Marko. Dear brother-in-law to Jack Wilson.
