December 30, 2021
July 1939 – December 2021 ~ It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Fred Markin on December 30, 2021. Fred passed away peacefully with his wife Agnes and daughter Donna at his side.
Fred and Agnes married in Grand Forks, BC, and then set roots in Nelson for over 40 years where they raised three daughters.
They have resided in Kelowna for the last 16 years. Fred had many accomplishments in life; owning and operating Markin Equipment, purchasing and developing land, building Blewett and Morning Mountain ski hills where he spent countless hours helping with the ski teams.
Fred had a zest for life (and all things fast), but his greatest asset was his intense motivation and thus strong investment in relationships both in the community and with his family.
He will be missed greatly by his wife of 60 years Agnes; children Vickie (Chris), Donna (David) and Joanna (Dave); and his grandchildren, Sasha, Jeremy, Jacob, Cyrus, Felix, Blake, Brayden, and Julia.Obituary
