Paul Markos, 76, reunited with his beloved wife Sharon in heaven on February 11, 2020. Paul was one of nine children born to Elias and Alvona Markos; emigrants from Macedonia who had settled in Battle Creek in 1927. He attended the Battle Creek Public Schools and retired from Ralston Food Company after working many years as a production worker. Paul found great comfort in the Macedonian food, music and language that had been passed on to him. For many years you could find Paul in the kitchen, cooking one of his favorite dishes. And if he had recently purchased his favorite Feta cheese, his family secretly hoped that they would be the lucky recipients of the delicious Spanakopita (spinach pie) he and Sharon would make from scratch.
In recent years Paul discovered a fondness for the game of soccer, particularly when his grandson Evan was playing or when cheering on their favorite teams. He also thoroughly enjoyed his lunch and dinner dates with his sons and their families; the gift of friendship he found in the grief group he attended; gardening; volunteering for Meals on Wheels; rooting for the Chicago Bears and Chicago Cubs; and those moments during holiday dinners or gatherings where he could find himself engaged in conversation with one of the many people, young or old, who were special to him.
Paul is survived by son’s Todd (Lynette) Markos of Kalamazoo, Anthony (Maria) Markos of Marshall, and Matt (Angie) Markos of Battle Creek; grandchildren Jordyn, Evan, Nate, Heather, Hailey and Zach; sisters Vangie Werrbach, Mary Ann (Bruce) Parkins, Nancy (Eduardo) Vitale and many other extraordinary family members and friends near and far. He was preceded in death by his wife Sharon, parents, brothers Pete, Larry, Steve, Johnny, and sister Helen.
The family welcomes you to a visitation gathering on Saturday, February 22 from 2:00-4:00 p.m. at Baxter Funeral Home in Battle Creek. Light refreshments will be served.
In lieu of flowers the family kindly asks that donations be made to the Grief Support Department of Hospice Care of Southwest Michigan or your local Meals on Wheels agency.

My heart is broken! I am so deeply sorry for your devastating loss. I do not get a BC paper and no longer live in BC. I just heard of Paul and Sharon's loss this morning. They were my second parents for so many years. I loved and respected them as my own. Throughout the years, I would run into them and always get a big hug. My husband was also able to meet them and also greeted with a hug. Outstanding and kind souls! I will miss his contagious and amazing smile!!!! My heart goes out to each and every one if you. I would like to know where they are so that I may pay my respects to them. My sincere thoughts and prayers are with you all. Words can not express...

Paul was the sweetest guy. Our kids loved him dearly, especially our son Jaxon. Paul would always get down on the floor and play cars with him he said it reminded him of playing with his boys. We knew Paul thru his close friends Kathy and Dave Peck. My husband said he don’t think he can watch a football game without Paul being the commentator. Paul will be deeply missed. Our condolences to you and your family.

I grew up with my brother Paul he was two years younger than me. Growing up in a family of nine brought lots of adventures to our house. Being a boy in our family meant you didn't have to do any house work instead you had to mow the lawn and Paul used a push lawnmower to do the job. He also had a paper route as did his older brothers Steve and Larry before him. Growing up we all sold novelty idem's for extra cash and I think that's where Paul honed his people skills. Paul was a good conversationalists and could talk to anyone he met. Paul became a Christian in his adult life and was a wonderful Sunday School teacher. When Paul married his wife Sharon he was the happiest man ever. Together they raised three boys which brought lots of activity to their home. Paul loved to play golf and watch the horse races. After the death of his beloved Sharon it was very difficult for Paul as he missed her so much. Going to grief recovery brought him some peace and he spoke highly of the people in his class. I will miss seeing him every summer when I come home but I have lots of good memories of my brother Paul and our life growing up as brother and sister. Until I see you again I bid you ado
