Paul E. Markey

1925 - 2014 SANDGATE, VT. Paul E. Markey passed away on October 28, 2014 at Hope Hospice in Fort Myers, FL due to complications from Alzheimer's disease at the age of 89. He was born to the late Edward & Edith Markey on August 7, 1925 in Bennington, VT. Paul graduated from Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston and then worked as a master electrician at E.J. Markey Electric, a family business founded by his father. After earning his teaching credentials, Paul's second career involved teaching in the Vermont school systems until retiring from Burr and Burton, his high school alma mater. Retirement afforded him the opportunity to pursue a variety of interests, including travel, golf, hosting dinners and parties for friends. Paul and Betty combined their interests in antiques and flower arranging by opening the Swearing Hill Farm Shop in Sandgate, VT. He also enjoyed volunteering at Hildene and sharing a 5 o'clock cocktail with friends and family. Paul was a member of the Federated Church of Arlington for many years. He was preceded in death by his wife, Elizabeth T. Markey, his brother, Joseph Markey and his former wife, Jean F. Markey. Paul will be sadly missed by his daughter, Cathy Reynolds of Fort Myers, FL; his sons, Robert Markey of Cave Creek, AZ; Allen Markey of Paris, France; James Markey of Greensboro, NC, and his grandchildren, Kristina and Schuyler. He is further survived by his wife's children, Marge Rosenburg, Don Trachte, Jr., David Trachte, and Jon Trachte. SERVICES: A celebration of Paul's life will be held graveside at the Evergreen Cemetery in Arlington on Friday, August 7, 2015 at 3p.m. Friends are invited to join the family in remembrance at this time.
